Press release

The launch of the new DeWitt CLASSIC collection marks an inspired change for the the Geneva workshops, which is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year.

While introducing a resolutely classic style and extremely pure lines, this new design remains faithful to the DeWitt DNA. Offering a subtle blend of character and elegance, the new CLASSIC collection is balanced and understated. The case is thinner than on the Academia and Twenty-8-Eight collections, and features a refined and understated version of the iconic imperial column motif.

The 40 mm-diameter rose-gold case and the soft, curved lines of the horns give an impression of extreme lightness. In this same “urban” spirit, it houses a self-winding mechanical movement with hours, minutes and seconds, a calendar and a jumping

The CLASSIC HMS offers a power reserve of approximately 42 hours with its automatic movement indicating hours, minutes and seconds. It is also available in rose gold with a bezel set with 60 brilliant-cut diamonds (approx. 1.8 cts).

Ranging from black to white, through a delicate shade of midnight blue, the sunray dials allow light and shadow to subtly interact with shape and colour.

The CLASSIC HMS is a paragon of traditional watchmaking expertise with its sunray dial, embellished with a railway circle, appliqué markers and 18-carat pink-gold openwork sword-shaped hands, fitted on a full-grain alligator strap.

Finally, the new CLASSIC line meets the high standards of finish adopted by the DeWitt Manufacture since its creation: satin-finished, polished and chamfered surfaces.

The high quality of finishing work also applies to the oscillating weight embellished with “Côtes de Genève”, signed by DeWitt, which can be seen through a sapphire crystal. There is also a “W” engraved on the rose gold fluted crown.

Designed with the artistry and expertise of traditional Swiss watchmaking, the new CLASSIC collection by DeWitt is the result of a constant pursuit for harmony and aesthetics.

As a graphic designer, I'm fascinated by the crossroads between technology and aesthetics. Horology is one of these crafts, where art and engineering come together to produce mechanical wonders that grace the eye. WatchPaper was born from the desire to create an online tool where I can share my passion for watches.
