150 round diamonds illuminate the Blue Empire

2016-06-17


Simple yet sophisticated, it is adorned with the most feminine details. Its 36-mm diameter round case in 18-carat rose gold or 18-carat gold and steel is embellished with a timeless metal wristband with delicate jewellery fastenings. The wristband of the rose gold model is set with a thin line of round diamonds at its centre.

The midnight blue dial is lit up by a guilloche sunray pattern decorated with 12 appliqués indicating the hours. It is assembled by hand by the expert dial-makers of the DeWitt workshops, one of the rare Manufactures to create the dials for its watches in-house.

The DeWitt imperial columns have been creatively revisited to highlight the dial, circling the 12 indexes indicating the time. This is a modern evolution of one of the distinctive feature s of the Manufacture’s watchmaking collections. Two open-worked hands in the form of double-edged swords indicate the hours and minutes, while the seconds are indicated by a central second hand.

The Blue Empire watch's crown in rose gold and blue lacquer is surrounded by a delicate circular row of 20 round diamonds. The watch’s extremely successful finishes and the alternation of polished gold, diamonds and blue embellishments in particular give it an added touch of refinement and modernism. In total, 150 round diamonds illuminate the Blue Empire watch in gold.

The model is available with a quartz movement or an automatic movement. With this latest creation, the DeWitt Manufacture wished to offer women a collection of jewellery watches with a resolutely contemporary aesthetic.
