The Replica DeWitt Classic Watches collection – the Classic Jumping Hour watch. As witnessed by its name, the novelty boasts the jumping hour function providing a fun and unconventional way of telling the time. The hour is not conventionally indicated by a central hand – it is indicated by a special disk visible via a big aperture found at 9 o’clock. The hour changes instantaneously by a jump every 60 minutes.The face of the new Replica DeWitt watch catches the glance by its resolutely contemporary asymmetry. Its design is based on an original interplay of reliefs and depths. It features two intersecting counter circles and the off-centre hour aperture. The beauty of the dial is enhanced by a sunray pattern. The dial is available in black, white or blue.
The case, 40 mm in diameter, is crafted from 18-K rose gold. It demonstrates the brand’s signature imperial columns on the sides. With its scalloped profile and soft curved lines of the lugs, it makes one feel the spirit of supreme simplicity and elegance. The case is teamed with a black alligator strap equipped with an 18-K rose gold pin buckle.
The Classic Jumping Hour Replica watch is animated by a mechanical self-winding movement offering the following functions: jumping hour display, minutes and seconds, and a 42-hour power reserve. The 21-jewel movement is operating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour. The rotor oà the mechanism is decorated with a Cotes-de-Geneve pattern. It is visible via the sapphire crystal case-back.The new DeWitt Classic Jumping Hour Replica watch reveals meticulous care given to every single detail. It is created for those who would appreciate a subtle union of watchmaking tradition and innovation.
Available both with creamy white and anthracite black dial, the new Fake DeWitt Classic Jumping Hour brings you that familiar design with a couple of off-centered dials and a rather small jumping hour aperture. However, while most timekeepers of this kind feature vertical sub-dials alignment, DeWitt opted for a horizontal one and then decorated the final product with their signature art-deco styling.
The three sub-dials are placed on the horizontal axis of the dial with the minute indicator overlapping with the jumping hour display on the left and a small seconds sub-dial on the right. To further emphasize the lack of vertical symmetry, DeWitt’s designers left the usual “Swiss Made” inscription at its place at 6 o’clock, but moved the logo slightly to the right. The really good thing about DeWitt is consistency. While their language constantly evolves and watches don’t look like Dolly the sheep, it will only take you just a passing glance to tell one of their watches from any other time measuring device selling under this brand name. You don’t even need to see their logo on the dial: the family resemblance is just there and there is no way you can overlook it.
The Swiss watchmaker doesn’t specify, which movement do they use to power this beautiful device, but I have a feeling that it is one of those ETA 2892A2-based Dubois Depraz 14400 calibers that second-tier manufacturers (starting from Baume & Mercier with their Classima Automatic Jumping Hour model and going all the way up to Perrelet) seem to love so much. Given the price of the material that the body is fashioned from (it is 18-carat rose gold if you haven’t noticed) and the size of it (at 40 millimeters in diameter and almost 11 millimeters thick it is a rather chunky piece of precious metal), the watch will inevitably be very expensive, perhaps, prohibitively so. Still, the DeWitt Classic Jumping Hour is a gorgeous looking piece of watchmaking art. If you can afford one, you should definitely take a look at this ticking beauty.
