Description

Dewitt is a contemporary high-tech watch brand with noble roots.
The founder, Jerome De Witt, can trace his heritage directly to Napoleon Bonaparte himself.
At the top of The Academia range of distinctive looking, cleverly designed timepieces, Minute Repeater is the most intricate of all complications. Sliding the lever camouflaged along the bezel at 10 o'clock produces a series of chimes that designate hours, quarter hours and minutes, so the owner could tell the time in complete darkness. This, understandably, was highly coveted in dimly lit cities of 19th century. The watch case is evocative of a snare drum with its distinctive ridges. The lower portion of the dial is skeletonized, so one can see through the movement and observe wheels and gears in motion. The bezel has a modern, high tech feel and seamlessly incorporates a slider to activate minute repeater. Naturally, such a timepiece is very exclusive and extremely limited in production. Only 50 pieces were made in 18K White Gold. This watch just came back from the manufacturer after undergoing a complete and full Factory Service. It is in pristine, like new condition. The Dewitt Official strap is brand new. The movement times accurately and the watch is water resistant.
Suggested retail for this model was $275000!!!
Available at a fraction of its original cost. Please compare the value to high end, high $$$ watches made these days and this Minute Repeater will stand out for the value it represents.

Our offering comes complete with original box and papers.

The pictures are of the actual watch in our inventory. We NEVER cut and paste stock photos for any of our offers.
