Twenty-8-Eight Double Fuseau GMT2 Poetic

By Chris Boyle

Combining watchmaking complications, aesthetics and poetry, new TWENTY-8-EIGHT
Double Time GMT2 Poetic accurately reflects the spirit of DeWitt.

This year 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 dialmakers, 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

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, at the other end of the
earth, our thoughts leave us…

The second time zone on the other hand is represented by a small hollow swordshaped
red hand.

True to its innovative and unique style, DeWitt has daringly chosen bold combinations
of materials.

The new TWENTY-8-EIGHT 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”.

dynamic construction.
