Brief Brand History for

Jérôme de Witt is the direct descendant of the Emperor Napoléon Bonaparte and the Kings Léopold I and II of Belgium. He founded his eponymous company in 2003. From its facilities in Geneva, DeWitt is able to develop and manufacture dials and movements in-house. In 2005, DeWitt earned the prestigious Innovation Prize at the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève for its patented Tourbillon Différentiel Academia. Introduced in 2010, the DW 8014 was the first entirely in-house regulator movement integrating a tourbillon. DeWitt fuses traditional watchmaking techniques such as guillochage with conceptually complex, modern movements.

Product Line Overview

The Academia Collection is equally defined by avant garde design and complicated movements. The design is composed of large Arabic numerals and a notched bezel with 24 corresponding "imperial columns" around the case. The collection hosts numerous high and grand complications including retrograde seconds, chronograph, perpetual calendar, constant force tourbillon, and minute repeater. The impressive Academia Mathematical features jumping hour and minutes displays. The Twenty-8-Eight Collection pays homage to DeWitt's distant relative, Napoleon Bonaparte, proclaimed emperor on the 28th day of the eighth month of the French Republican Calendar. The Twenty-8-Eight is inspired by radiator grills of vintage cars and the Art Deco architectural movement. The collection hosts several handmade tourbillons in manually-wound, automatic, and skeletonized forms. The Glorious Knight Collection features large, sporty cases ranging from 42 to 46 millimeters in diameter, notched bezels, and dials marked by Roman numerals every three hours. The Glorious Knight is available in automatic time-only and chronograph variations. DeWitt produces several prestigious timepieces in the High Jewelry and Concept Collections. The latter hosts exceptionally complex watches such as the WX-1. The WX-1 tells the time with three rotating disks. The movement, which features a vertical tourbillon, can be slotted out of the unconventional, space-age case.
