The face of the watch is artistically divided in two different guilloche zones. In the center, a light flame pattern provides incredible life to the dial as the slightest wrist movement will animate the flames in graceful reflections. The second pattern, at the perimeter, takes the form of a regular and reassuring sunray that structures the whole design. Flames and sunrays are separated by a fine circle appliqué that gives a final touch of shiny elegance and echoes the thin and polished columns on the bezel.
Time has never been more readable as large Roman numerals are positioned on the four cardinal points and discretely interconnected by small Arabic numerals positioned at five-minute intervals.
AN “URBAN CLASSIC” WITH COMFORTABLE PROPORTIONS
The Twenty-8-Eight Automatic is an “urban classic” with a 43 mm round case made in 18-karat rose gold. Offering a subtle combination of character and refinement, the design of the Twenty-8-Eight collection is sober and balanced. Presenting a slightly thinner case (10.28 mm) than the Academia collection as well as more discrete columns on its flanks, the Twenty-8-Eight collection gives a fascinating impression of lightness.
Elegant and streamlined lugs complete the design with perfect proportions and offer remarkable comfort. However, the strong DNA, so characteristic of DeWitt watches, remains fully recognizable.
SOLID AND RELIABLE WITH PERFECT FINISHING
The Twenty-8-Eight Automatic houses a solid and reliable caliber and displays hours, minutes, and center seconds. The hour and minute hands are open-worked and in the shape of two-edged swords, whereas the second hand, elegant and thin, gracefully glides round the dial. The Twenty-8-Eight Automatic fully complies with the very demanding finishing norms of DeWitt manufacturing: satin-brushed surfaces, polishing, and beveling. The quality of the finishing can be observed through the sapphire crystal back, which also unveils a fine DeWitt rotor, designed in-house.
Also, you can find two miniature “W” signatures on the crown and the golden buckle. Last but not least, just like any DeWitt watch, it is entirely assembled, adjusted, and tested by a single master watchmaker.
