As DeWitt celebrates its tenth anniversary this year, the DeWitt Classic collection remains faithful to the DeWitt DNA; a blend of character and understated elegance. The case is thinner than on the Academia and Twenty-8-Eight collections, and features a refined version of the imperial column motif. The 40mm diameter rose-gold case and the soft, curved lines of the horns help to reveal its lightness.
The watch is powered by a self-winding mechanical movement with a 42 hour power reserve. In addition to indicating the hours, minutes, and seconds, the movement has a calendar with days of the week located at 11 o'clock, months at 1 o'clock and the date using a central hand.
A mother-of-pearl moon phase indicator is positioned at 6 o'clock placed on a "goldstone" sky. Goldstone is a glittering glass discovered in Venice in the seventeenth century, which later was developed into the famous Murano glass.
Ranging from black to white, through a delicate shade of midnight blue, the sunray dial allows light and shadow to subtly interact with shape and colour. The Classic Quantieme’s sunray dial is further embellished with appliqué markers, and openwork sword-shaped hands.
As with all watches from the DeWitt manufacture, the high quality of finishing work also applies to the oscillating weight, embellished with "Côtes de Genève"and signed by DeWitt, clearly visible through a sapphire crystal. There is also a "W" engraved on the rose-gold fluted crown.
