De Bethune - Tenth anniversary of the DB28

De Bethune Tenth anniversary of the DB28

Ten years already.

The model that won the “Aiguille d’Or” Grand Prix award in the 2011 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève – and of which two models were also nominated in the 2019 edition of the competition – is celebrating its tenth anniversary with a trilogy. The DB28 collection is firmly focused on ultra-thinness this year, expressed in monochrome titanium with or without a tourbillon, as well as in a Starry Sky version. The DB28XP returns to the quintessence of its design : a subtly curved sheet of mirror-polished titanium, operating in symbiosis with the 194 tiny components of the ultra-thin Manufacture movement, which boasts a 20% longer power reserve (six days) and is partially revealed through the dial with its “microlight” decoration. Its hyper-sophisticated aesthetic treatment and structure are every bit as intriguing as an encounter of the third kind, with three patents and as many dedicated De Bethune technological breakthroughs highlighting the level of innovation involved. The famous floating lugs are visually fascinating while ensuring a perfect fit on the wrist, thereby accentuating the architectural prowess of this iconic third-millennium watch. When hightech meets aesthetic avant-garde, De Bethune is firmly in the forefront.
