The iconic collection is offering one of the more original takes on the GMT complication, with a new very poetic way to display the time. It is equipped with a self-winding mechanical movement with a power reserve of 42 hours, and with three complications: date, GMT, and day/night indicator for the second time zone.

Its contemporary 43mm-diameter round titanium case sculpted with the 24 traditional DeWitt imperial columns plays on the contrast with the extreme refinement of the dial.

Created in-house by the Maison’s dialmakers, its rosette pattern gives structure to various decorations: sunray brushing, beige mother of pearl half-moons, and Arabic and Roman numerals in pink gold appliques.

In the upper part, the eye is inexorably drawn to the circular aperture at 12 o'clock, where the sun’s rays emerge at dawn and fade at dusk. The second time zone on the other hand is represented by a small hollow sword-shaped red hand.

The Twenty-8-Eight Double Fuseau GMT2 Poetic timepiece comes into two different references: the first version features a black dial with sunray pattern and red rosette motif, while the second one features a grey dial with sunray pattern and grey rosette motif. These timepieces are fitted with a black alligator leather strap with a titanium pin buckle.

The Twenty-8-Eight Double Fuseau GMT2 Poetic watch also perfectly meets the highest standards of finish adopted since its creation by the DeWitt Manufacture: satin-finished, bevelled and polished surfaces. The high quality of finishes also applies to the rotor with the personalised "Côtes de Genève". The crown also sports an engraved "W".
