A linear-read jumping hour that marries functionality with flair in dress-watch form.

SKOLORR Comments

The sumptuous sunray pattern on the dial and the simple elegance of the rose-gold case and leather strap soften the overtly mechanical look of the subdials – perfect for slipping beneath the crisply ironed French cuff of a dress shirt, come cocktail hour.

Inspiration

Overview

Launched in the brand’s 10th year, the Classic collection is a bit of a departure for the DeWitt. The idea was to create a more understated selection of watches, with pure lines, unfussy dials and a more enduring aesthetic. The cases are thinner than the Academia and Twenty-8-Eight collections, but the imperial column motif – the signature crenellations that nod to DeWitt’s Napoleonic connections – remain steadfast. 

This Jumping Hour is technically the most complex Classic, but while  at first glance it may also seem complex in terms of legibility, it is surprisingly sensible, as the perfectly proportioned discs draw your eye across the dial the way a sentence does across a page. 


Inspiration

In a warm tribute to mechanical watchmaking so dear to Jérôme de Witt, founder of the Manufacture, the jumping hour offers a fun and unusual way of telling the time.
