Twenty-8-Eight Automatic

In a move towards greater classicism, DeWitt’s emblematic imperial columns, the brand’s veritable signature, have become more discreet in its new Twenty-8-Eight collection; the pink gold case is also finer than in the past. A truly harmonious creation that reveals a magnificent flambé zone and delicate radiating pattern under its velvety black dial. With DeWitt, tradition is never far away: the Twenty-8-Eight pays tribute to the 28 Floréal, the day on which the Senate of Republican France proclaimed Napoleon Bonaparte – Jérôme DeWitt’s illustrious ancestor – as “Emperor of the French people”. It can hardly be a coincidence that the Twenty-8-Eight was designed on … 28 August! Limited edition of 500.
