This outstanding black chronograph watch inherits the outstanding chronograph function and is equipped with the world’s best mass-produced mechanical movement. It is a must-have for watch fans who seek classic style and top technology.

DeWitt released the fourth model of the DeWitt Twenty-8-Eight series this year. The watch dial has a unique design, and the velvet black dial is patterned by a taupe radial sun pattern. Surround to create an illusionary effect.
The diameter of the 43 mm case is slightly smaller than the size of the brand Academia series, and the cylindrical design on the side is also more compact, exuding a charming light texture as a whole. The elegant streamlined lugs make the proportions of the watch more perfect and more comfortable to wear. However, the toughness characteristic of DeWitt watches is still distinct.
The DeWitt Twenty-8-Eight watch is driven by the DWT8AU self-winding movement (based on the ETA2892 movement), has a 42-hour power reserve, and can see through the sapphire crystal glass back of the exquisite DeWitt rotor designed by the watch factory. The double-edged sword-shaped hour and minute hands are cut out, and the elegant and slim second hand runs elegantly around the dial.
Like any DeWitt watch, the Twent-8-Eight watch is fully assembled, adjusted and inspected by the same watchmaker from start to finish.
