Up Close With The Classic DeWitt Twenty-8-Eight Seconde Retrograde Automatic Copy Watch
This new distinctive fake DeWitt Twenty-8-Eight Seconde Retrograde (Ref. T8.SR.001)automatic watch that the company presented during the Baselworld 2012 show, is basically the same timekeeper, which is now presented in slimmer, more art-deco-style body. If you keep a close eye on the young Swiss watchmaker, you probably remember the stately DeWitt Academia Seconde Retrograde Serenity model that was revealed around three years ago.
Compared to the Academia model, the new watch not only features slightly (around 0.5 mm) slimmer body, but also comes equipped with a thinner fixed bezel, thus, remaining the same 43 millimeters in diameter, offering more real estate for the dial.
The new timekeeper features an outstanding combination of rose gold and micro-blasted titanium: a new alloy that was originally created for aerospace applications and is ten times harder than standard Grade 5 titanium.
By the way, speaking of bezel, it must be noted that the part is crafted from Grade-5 Neotitanium material: a usual grade 5 titanium alloy that was treated with high-temperature electro-plasma and anodized offering a winning combination of low density and high resistance to scratche
Accordingly, the oversized Roman numerals were transferred to the outer ring and are now accompanied by eight small Arabic numerals at the five-minute intervals: another characteristic feature of the Twenty-8-Eight family of replica DeWitt watches.
As the sensually curved rose gold lugs, the bezel of the piece was polished and micro-blasted in order to produce a silky, soft to touch textures.
As to the inner workings of the new Seconde Retrograde, it is powered by the same Caliber DW1102 self-winding movement that animated the Academia version.
Featuring 21 jewels and beating at a pretty much standard frequency of 28,800 vph, this is actually the well-known ETA 2892-A2 caliber that features the same 30-second retrograde small seconds module that was supplied by the Swiss-based complications specialist Agenhor: a small company, which is responsible for the stunning complications that we have seen in the gorgeous Hermes Arceau Temps Suspendu; the limited edition ultra-expensive Harry Winston Premier Excenter Perpetual Calendar Platinum; and the playful Van Cleef & Arpels Poetic Complication Five weeks in a balloon mens fake DeWitt watches.
