Dewitt Golden Afternoon Watch

Dewitt Golden Afternoon Watch

DeWitt continues to reinvent its iconic Golden Afternoon watch. Like the nineteenth-century painters and their works, this watch enchants detail, comes alive with colour, finds inspiration in Nature, and is a homage to women. The new Golden Afternoon comes drenched in rich chocolate brown. Pink gold imperial columns, sculpted and set with diamonds to form one with the whole, encircle each timepiece as though to better protect this secret garden. Flowers of different sizes and colours are scattered across the mother-of-pearl dial, interspersed with 14 floating diamonds. Two angel's wings sweep this Garden of Eden as the hours and minutes drift by. This heavenly creation attaches to a lady's wrist with a delicate brown leather strap featuring diamond-set horns. A consummately feminine watch set with 146 diamonds for a total of 1.4 carats.
