The TWENTY-8-EIGHT collection by DeWitt

March 2011

TWENTY-8-EIGHT AUTOMATIC The Twenty-8-Eight Automatic is an “urban classic” with a 43 mm round case made in 18-carat white or rose gold. Offering a subtle combination of character and refinement, the design of the Twenty-8-Eight collection is sober and balanced. Presenting a slightly thinner case (10,28 mm) than the Academia collection as well as more discrete columns on its flanks, the Twenty-8-Eight collection gives a fascinating impression of lightness.

TWENTY-8-EIGHT TOURBILLON The DeWitt calibre DW8028 is a manually wound movement integrating a solid and reliable Tourbillon mechanism. Its construction is rather classical, using age-old and recognized technical parameters as a basis: 18’000 A/h, 72 hours power reserve. The movement is equipped with a Swiss anchor escapement with a variable-inertia balance and a spiral with a Breguet curve sequenced at 2.5 Hz.

TWENTY-8-EIGHT REGULATOR A.S.W. HORIZONS The new Twenty-8-Eight Regulator A.S.W. Horizons is home to the already famous calibre DW 8014, first revealed at Baselworld 2010. This new automatic Tourbillon is the first complicated regulator movement integrating a Tourbillon entirely developed and produced by the DeWitt Manufacture. Most importantly, it introduces a patented and extremely ingenious Automatic Sequential Winding (A.S.W) device, driven by a peripheral oscillating rotor.
