Dewitt Twenty-8-Eight Double Time GMT2 Poetic

Combining watchmaking complications, aesthetics and poetry, TWENTY-8-EIGHT Double Time GMT2 Poetic accurately reflects the spirit of DeWitt. The iconic collection is offering one of the more original takes on the GMT complication, with a new very poetic way to display the time.

It is equipped with a self-winding mechanical movement with a power reserve of 42 hours, and with three complications: date, GMT, and day/night indicator for the second time zone. Its contemporary 43mm-diameter round titanium case sculpted with the 24 traditional DeWitt imperial columns plays on the contrast with the extreme refinement of the dial.


Created in-house by the Maison’s dial makers, its rosette pattern gives structure  to  various  decorations:  sunray  brushing,  beige  mother  of pearl  half-moons,  and  Arabic  and  Roman  numerals  in  pink  gold appliques, like a garden shaped by the hand of man. In the upper part, the eye is inexorably drawn to the circular aperture at 12 o'clock, where the sun’s rays emerge at dawn and fade at dusk. The second time zone on the other hand is represented by a small hollow sword-shaped red hand.
The  TWENTY-8-EIGHT  Double  Fuseau  GMT2  Poetic  watch  also  perfectly  meets  the  highest standards of finish adopted since its creation by the DeWitt Manufacture: satin-finished, bevelled and polished surfaces. The high quality of finishes also applies to the rotor with the personalised "Côtes de Genève". The crown also sports an engraved "W".
With its unique aesthetic signature mixing poetry and high-end watchmaking, a truly original function display, and the combination of special materials, the new TWENTY-8-EIGHT relinquishes a gentle harmony from within its dynamic construction.
