De Bethune DB25 Special Edition Watch - Inspired by Nocturnal Sky

Jun 16, 2011
De Bethune has proudly issued its new DB25 Special Edition watch, to be officially unveiled at Only Watch 2011.


Inspired by the nocturnal sky, the new De Bethune watch is delivered in a 44mm round-shaped case. It is crafted from white gold. At 3 o’clock, the case reveals a screw-down crown, which ensures setting in two positions.

The top of the model is covered by a double-sided glare-proofed sapphire crystal. The same glass is used for the open case-back.

The new De Bethune DB25 Special Edition watch boggles the public’s imagination with its flame-blued titanium dial. It exhibits a starlit sky above Monaco on January 8th 1297, when the rock was taken by Francois Grimaldi.

Standing out against a mesmerizing background are the Orion and Gemini constellations. The display is sprinkled with 105 stars - 91of them are in white gold and 14 are invisibly set diamonds.

Responsible for hours and minutes is a disc at 6 o’clock. Performed in pure sand-blasted sterling silver, it is engraved with Roman numerals for the hours and Arabic numerals for the minutes.

Driving the functions is a mechanical hand-wound DB2105S movement. It is composed of 270 individual parts, including 29 jewels. The mechanism operates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour.

Integrated within the movement is a twin self-regulating barrel, which ensures a power reserve of 6 days. Its main plate and bridges are in bevelled and hand-polished steel with a particular polish, which evokes the 19th century models made for the nobility and Chinese emperors.

Keeping the new De Bethune watch secured to the wearer’s wrist is an extra-supple alligator leather strap, finished with a pin buckle.
