Jerome DeWitt knows a thing or two about exceptionally high standards. He is a direct descendant of the Emperor Napoleon and has applied that outstanding work ethic into the stunning watches he has been creating since 2003. Not known for sleek and thin timepieces, DeWitt designs bring prominence to the heart of what makes a superb luxury timepiece.
DeWitt’s latest model is the Twenty-8-Eight Skeleton Tourbillon. The beautiful movement is revealed through a skeletal face made up in a intricate bridging pattern. The bridges themselves are highlighted with 215 diamonds making this particular DeWitt sparkle like no other. The unique DeWitt W logo floats between the bridges.
The case is finished in solid 18K white gold adding to its heft and solidity. As this is not a self winder, the crown is stands out also in solid 18K white gold and finished with DeWitt’s unique W logo on the cap end.
The tourbillion sits in its usual spot near the bottom and is highlighted with nickle finished metal and impressive bolts that secure the mechanics. The engineering of the mechanism is completely in view and the owner can enjoy DeWitt’s unique movement at a more academic level.
The sword like hour and minute hands speak to the lineage of DeWitt himself and give this watch a certain dominance in horology. An luxurious alligator strap and 18k white gold buckle with W signature finish this stunning wristwatch. Some are calling this watch a work of art and with its intricate design and unique execution, we have to agree. But there is no way we would keep this one under glass!
