The timepiece maker De Bethune offers its devotees an enjoyable opportunity to discover its extraordinary DB25T Tourbillon Regulator watch.
The amazing novelty accommodates a manufactory-made hand-wound caliber DB2109 movement.
It is enriched with a silicon/titanium tourbillon carriage. With the weight equal to at 0.18 gram, this 50-part construction is regarded as the lightest of its type.
The caliber incorporates twin barrels, which work in parallel to deliver stable power for 100-hour autonomy. Paved with 45 jewels and artfully embellished with De Bethune stripes, the movement operates at a frequency of 36,000 vibrations per hour.
The new De Bethune watch is extremely appealing - both technologically and visually. It shows off a two-part dial, impossible to resist. The display comprises a blued steel disk, sprinkled with gold stars. This disk is surrounded by an hour and minute ring, crafted from sterling silver.
The light-toned ring is equipped with the Arabic numerals, which serve to indicate minutes. The Roman numerals, located closer to the blued disc, are meant for displaying hours. Taking care of hours and minutes are Breguet-type hands, sculptured in hand-polished steel. The seconds are indicated by a slim hand, produced from the same material.
The aforementioned tourbillon mechanism is removed from the dial and is placed on the back side of the new DB25T Tourbillon Regulator watch, right below the Delta-shaped bridge. Fitted with a high quality sapphire crystal, the case-back permits the glance into the movement.
The front part of a 44.60 mm case is assembled with a sapphire crystal, anti-reflective on both sides. The case itself is rendered in white or rose gold. The timepiece functions are governed by a charming crown, located at 3 o’clock.
Keeping the new De Bethune watch secured to the wearer’s wrist is an extra-supple alligator leather strap, fitted with a pin buckle.
