DeWitt Twenty-8-Eight Skeleton Tourbillon

This is the marvelous DeWitt Twenty-8-Eight Skeleton Tourbillon watch, a new timepiece from the Geneva-based watchmaker with diamonds and an amazing design that’s worthy to adorn any royal’s wrist.

The Swiss horologist Jérôme DeWitt is actually a descendant of the great Napoléon Bonaparte, which explains the name of the watch: Twenty-8-Eight being the date on the French Republican Calendar when Bonaparte was announced Emperor of France.

This new DeWitt timepiece carries a consort of 215 round diamonds draped over its skeletonized, sand-brushed-nickel silver main plate, with black hour and minute hands that resemble double-edged swords on the dial’s three-dimensional display, adding to the overall elegance of the 18-karat white-gold case that’s flanked by 48 imperial columns.

Precision is assured by the manually wound tourbillon movement, featuring a 72-hour power reserve. DeWitt’s diamond-edition Twenty-8-Eight Skeleton Tourbillon and its sapphire-crystal caseback could be yours for $195,800.

About Victor Baker

Victor has always been a big fan of cars, which is why he’s so proud to call himself a genuine petrolhead these days. His love actually stemmed from his father, who was an automotive engineer. Today, he loves to write down everything that comes to mind, car-related or not, and when he really gets down to it, he pretty much becomes one with his laptop.
