Inspiration

Overview

DeWitt’s in-house dial atelier is renowned for skeletonising portions of the watch face, exposing the inner workings for all to admire. But with this moonphase model, it really takes things further, completely removing one half of the dial to contrast the stark tech of the movement with the deep romance of the night sky, rendered in glittering aventurine glass crystal. 

Coupled with the whimsical nature of a moonphase, this bold, creative decision lends the piece a sci-fi, almost “steampunk” aesthetic, compounded by the rose-gold open circle that floats above the moon to define its particular phase. All in all, a beguiling piece to inspire wonder and conversation. 

Inspiration

The intriguing name of the collection comes from the date the first piece in the collection was conceived – August 28 – but it also corresponds with the 28th of Floréal in the Republican calendar, which was the date that Jerome DeWitt’s ancestor Napoleon Bonaparte was made Emperor of France.

Style Guide

In The Know

“I have a thing for moon phase complications and I must say, this one is probably the most positively unusual one.” The Horophile

“Though the watches of DeWitt’s Twenty-8-Eight collection have featured their fair share of avant-garde design elements, the new Twenty-8-Eight Full Moon may be its most unconventional design yet.” Robb Report

“Unlike other watch models with a moon phase function, two moons are displayed in the window and play opposite each other with a unique interpretation of the cycles of life.” EuropaStar
