Swiss luxury watch manufacture DeWitt unveils the Twenty-8-Eight Skeleton Tourbillon timepiece crafted in precious white gold incorporating skeletonisation art crafts and most prestigious complication of traditional watch industry.
Offering breathtaking views of inner mechanisms to the onlooker, this high horology marvel beats to the rhythm of the DeWitt Calibre DW8028s, a micro mechanical workhorse that uses age-old, recognized and highly reliable technical parameters in its construction: 18’000 A/h, a variable-inertia balance, a 44° angle escapement and 72 hours power reserve.
The carved-out main plate, a sand-brushed nickel silver base with blue PVD surface finishing. Meandering across the movement, the lucky observer will suddenly land on a stunning skeletonised “W” logo positioned at 9 o’clock. The play on depths, perspectives and layers is a typical feature of DeWitt designs and the Twenty-8-Eight Skeleton Tourbillon is no exception. The skeletonised “W” logo is actually duplicated on the lower part of the movement in order to offer these interesting volumes when admiring the movement from either side of the watch. The Tourbillon offers eye pleasing views as it gracefully rotates on its axis, held in place by a long, slender and circular grained Art Déco bridge.
