DeWitt presents the “Dame de Pressy” to HM The Queen

Jul 12, 2010

At last month’s Queen’s Cup at Windsor Great Park, DeWitt participated as “Official Timekeeper” for its first major event of the Guards Polo Club, which also included a special presentation by Jérôme de Witt to HM The Queen – a special commemorative “Dame de Pressy” timepiece.

After the prize giving ceremony, HM The Queen was greeted by Mr. de Witt in front of the Royal Box and presented with a commemorative DeWitt watch, specifically designed for the occasion: a dazzling Dame de Pressy, fully set with diamonds and with a pink alligator strap, changed at the last moment to match the color of the flower on her hat.

The Dame de Pressy was presented to her in an elegant white box with a selection of 6 additional color straps in a bottom discrete drawer. Mr de Witt showed HM The Queen the miniature logo of the Guards Polo Club, meticulously hand-reproduced on the sapphire crystal back of the watch. The “Queen’s Cup 1960-2010“ Dame de Pressy will be produced in a limited edition of only 50 pieces.

The second timepiece, specifically designed by DeWitt for the 50th anniversary of the Queen’s Cup, is a gentleman’s Tourbillon watch, inspired from the new Twenty-8-Eight model. The Guards Polo Club logo is this time reproduced on a small “applique” plate positioned on the dial. The reproduction of the logo on such a scale (8 mm) is literally a small work of art, requiring up to a week to apply the 12 different layers of color, each one to be treated separately with a special coating.

DeWitt timepieces are available at King Jewelers in Nashville, TN and Aventura, FL. For additional information, please visit”> and
