Just as Mr de Witt himself, founder and President of the company, the DeWitt brand breathes a unique vision of luxury, daringly different and unconventional. Following trends is easy and reassuring. But to continue exploring new boundaries when everybody else has abandoned takes a certain state of mind, made of independence and character. The DeWitt personality is precisely about persistence and audacity. About being different and feeling the liberty to dream of new objects that will bring you to irrational heights.
The DeWitt Manufacture, a sanctuary for Heritage, Innovation and the Future, All-in-One, located in the close and picturesque vicinity of Geneva.
In 2003, Jérôme de Witt decided to create DeWitt, a brand which would reflect his vision of watchmaking and give birth to the most elaborate complications respecting the best watchmakers' tradition. At that time, the Manufacture was established in its first workshop in Vandoeuvres.
The company headquarters are located in Satigny, Geneva. Like many other players within the watch industry, DeWitt aims to become a full-fledged watch Manufacture that is both independent and self-sufficient in terms of production. In this respect, the Satigny offices are entirely in tune with the company’s evolution towards a full verticalization of its activities.
Offering over 5000 square-metres of surface spread over three floors, the Manufacture houses all the traditional watchmaking activities, from design right through to production and quality control. A dedicated R & D department operates upstream to give shape and channel all the innovative ideas and creative inspirations.
