De Bethune - Moon Satellite for Only Watch 2019

De Bethune Moon Satellite for Only Watch 2019

This unique timepiece is a complex interaction of mechanisms specific to De Bethune and Urwerk and a true fusion of their watchmaking genes.

De Bethune x Urwerk is the story of four personalities, Denis Flageollet and Pierre Jacques at De Bethune, and Felix Baumgartner and Martin Frei at Urwerk. In support of the Only Watch biennial charity auction of unique timekeepers, the  two great independent watchmaking “Maisons joined their creative energies in bringing forth a timepiece that arouses curiosity, focuses attention and touches the senses. 

From the outside, a case that challenges established norms, fusing the design and function genetics of De Bethune and Urwerk with its floating lugs and the singular vibrancy of blued titanium, the result of natural thermal oxidation at the masterful hands of De Bethune.

Under the hood and curved sapphire crystal, the one-off URDB01caliber jointly developed for this very special auction – the crown at 12 o'clock, spherical moon phase, and Urwerk’s signature time indication with the now-famous satellite window in an arc that evokes the sun's curvature.
