DEWITT

The DeWitt Watch Manufacture was founded in 2003 by Jérôme de Witt to create and hand-crafted exceptional and innovative Master Complications. Jérôme de Witt is a direct descendant of emperors and kings in Europe, including such illustrious ancestors as the Emperor Napoleon and King Jérôme of Westphalia. With such a strong and authentic heritage, DeWitt watches are immediately recognizable with their distinctive imperial column design. The DeWitt Manufacture houses all traditional watchmaking activities, from design right through to production and quality control to guarantee that the unique manufacture calibers meet the highest Swiss quality standards. Located in Meyrin-Geneva, Switzerland, the 5000 sqm DeWitt Manufacture also integrates the extremely complex know-how required for manufacturing its dials in-house. It employs 60 talented technicians, skilled master-watchmakers and passionate professionals. The brand’s six collections include the iconic Academia line, the architectural Twenty-8-Eight, the elegant Classic line, the contemporary Glorious Knight steel timepieces, and the 2 refined Ladies collections, Alma and Golden Afternoon. The DeWitt Museum, located at the company headquarters, is the perfect illustration of this very special link with the history of watchmaking machinery. Displaying one of the world’s largest collections of tools with over 250 objects, the DeWitt Museum retraces almost three centuries of hand-crafted watchmaking. Far from the watch-making usual rules, the vision of Jérôme de Witt, the inventor of these timepieces and movements, is to create non-conformist and innovative hand crafted watches for today’s Emperors.
