The DeWitt Manufacture is preparing to launch its new standard automatic calibre in 2015 to mark the twelfth anniversary of the company's creation.
It has taken three years to create this new movement, including two years of initial development and a further year to perfect its definitive features. Already well accustomed to manufacturing and assembling its grand complication movements (particularly tourbillons) in-house, the Swiss watchmaker is now poised to assert its full independence by producing its very own automatic movement. Having already mastered the extremely complex techniques required to create its own dials, this latest specialisation will thus enable the DeWitt Manufacture to enjoy total autonomy.
The elegant design was conceived by Jérôme de Witt to give maximum visibility to the movement's gear-train and other mechanical features. With its bridges decorated with both circular and bevelled Côtes de Genève patterns and its circular-grained mainplate, all the movement's finishes are handcrafted.
