De Bethune - Technical finesse and elegance

De Bethune Technical finesse and elegance

To mark the 10th anniversary of its flagship watch, the brand unveils a new DB28 timepiece.

To celebrate the tenth anniversary of its flagship watch, De Bethune is taking the DB28 into a new universe : that of finesse. Sprinkled with (blued) details, the DB28XP Tourbillon exudes an impression of elegance, which is the other mode of expression used by the brand that often flaunts a highly technical look. Its 8.1mm case featuring floating lugs molds the wrist perfectly and with a particularly light touch ensured by the polished titanium from which it is crafted. This anniversary timepiece provides a level of comfort rarely experienced in watchmaking, with a barely-there feel accentuated by the dials’ aesthetics. The latter is enlivened by (blued) spear-shaped hands and a silver-toned barleycorn guilloché pattern, surrounded by a (blued) titanium ring punctuated by polished stud-type hour-markers. Finally, the (blued) 6 o’clock aperture reveals the innermost nature of the brand : the (blued) 30-second tourbillon carriage housing a (blued) titanium balance with white gold weights, beating at the extremely rare frequency of 5 Hz. And all that is merely the tip of the iceberg in terms of the sophistication characterizing the DB2009v4 caliber.
