The DeWitt Classic collection welcomes a newcomer – the Classic Jumping Hour watch. As witnessed by its name, the novelty boasts the jumping hour function providing a fun and unconventional way of telling the time. The hour is not conventionally indicated by a central hand – it is indicated by a special disk visible via a big aperture found at 9 o’clock. The hour changes instantaneously by a jump every 60 minutes.The face of the new DeWitt watch catches the glance by its resolutely contemporary asymmetry. Its design is based on an original interplay of reliefs and depths. It features two intersecting counter circles and the off-centre hour aperture. The beauty of the dial is enhanced by a sunray pattern. The dial is available in black, white or blue.
The case, 40 mm in diameter, is crafted from 18-K rose gold. It demonstrates the brand’s signature imperial columns on the sides. With its scalloped profile and soft curved lines of the lugs, it makes one feel the spirit of supreme simplicity and elegance. The case is teamed with a black alligator strap equipped with an 18-K rose gold pin buckle.
The Classic Jumping Hour watch is animated by a mechanical self-winding movement offering the following functions: jumping hour display, minutes and seconds, and a 42-hour power reserve. The 21-jewel movement is operating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour. The rotor oà the mechanism is decorated with a Cotes-de-Geneve pattern. It is visible via the sapphire crystal case-back.The new DeWitt Classic Jumping Hour watch reveals meticulous care given to every single detail. It is created for those who would appreciate a subtle union of watchmaking tradition and innovation.
