DeWitt's Alma Jewelry Collection is by no means new to the ears; in fact, it has been around for long, bearing the flag of the brand's second women's collection. This 2016, the brand puts the focus on women as it releases another visually delightful treat for the female demography. This time however, they're not pressing on to the more edgy, futuristic appeal, but has returned to its rich heritage to transform a prominent watch series into something timeless.
The soft oval shaped case of the Alma series is probably what made it well-loved by women. It is just fitting that the highlight of the brand's 2016 is derived from this collection, creating a new flavor from its old masterpiece to give way to the new.
The fresh offerings for DeWitt's Alma watch jewelry focuses on two contrasting colors; white and black, creating a classic, elegant approach to women's timepieces. These two models are surprisingly simple than the former release, which evokes a rather vintage, regal style. Despite the changes, one could only smile at the streamlined appearance of the new Alma watches, giving one the option to choose from two distinct looks, and two distinct sizes.
At a glance, one could immediately see the brilliant interplay between the soft curved lines from the 18k rose gold material, and the diamond setting. The dials are subtly asymmetrical in design, showcasing imposed ellipses by giving an intriguing depth and elegance to the face. The bezel, a narrow curvy form from the top, flares out at 6 o'clock. In the same principle, the gem setting showcases a parade of round diamonds that seem to increase in size as they approach the bottom position. Accentuating the theme is the finished dials with refined details, showcasing the craftsmanship of DeWitt's Meyrin manufacture.
The dial is made out of either white or black mother of pearls, accentuated with a sunburst guilloche pattern in the middle. The upper part sports an elegant arc embellished with diamonds. Sword-shaped, open worked rose gold hands sweep through the dial. There's an unusual placement of seven indices on the upper half, while incrementally sized numerals are placed from 4 to 8 at the bottom.
The French-Swiss watchmaker is among the four houses that creates both dial and movement in-house. This superbly finished jewelry watch comes with a gold crown set with a round diamond. Sizes vary, with a small and medium model, each comprised with a black satin strap to match both black and white models. The brand's famous W emblem finishes off the strap's buckle for a more sophisticated touch.
