Baselworld 2012 Spotlight: DeWitt Twenty-8-Eight Skeleton Watch

Mar 11, 2012

What’s not to love about skeleton watches? They show off all the intricacies of a watch movement and are still beautiful to look at. That’s why today’s Baselworld feature is showing off the latest release from DeWitt, the Twenty-8-Eight Skeleton watch. This exquisite watch design shows off what DeWitt is known for, the first 100 percent manufacture movement through a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. The movement is a DW8028 Calibre hand-winding movement with an integrated tourbillon complication. With a movement as intricate as this, it’s no wonder that DeWitt opted to show it off with a skeletonized dial.

Several elements of the skeleton dial design hark back to an Art Deco influence, including the barrel at the 12 o’clock position (inspired by vintage steering wheels) and the bridges across the tourbillon in the 6 o’clock position. This geometric Art Deco theme is also carried to the baguette diamonds set in the 18 karat white gold version of this watch. The 36 baguette diamonds are only set in the white gold version of the Twenty-8-Eight Tourbillon Skeleton watch. The flange in this version is also set with eight round-cut white diamonds and the engraved DeWitt “W” signature that help server as hour markers. The rose gold version of this watch only has the engraved “W” signature.

This watch stays true to the entire philosophy of DeWitt, which is an adherence to classical watchmaking with a modern flair in design. It’s pieces like this that sum up where DeWitt watches have come from and exactly where they’re going to go.
