De Bethune DB28 Automatic Watch - Marriage of Complication and Aestheticism

Jan 14, 2011
The watchmaker De Bethune delights the public with the presentation of its new DB28 automatic watch.

The readily identifying attribute of this marvelous creation is the brand’s signature three dimensional moon-phase indicator. Crafted from platinum and blued steel, it is presented on an alluring skeletonized dial.

In fact, the part of the dial is performed by a hand-decorated main plate, integrated within the movement. Its open-worked structure permits a glance into a silicon/palladium balance wheel.

The display of the new De Bethune watch captures the time by means of skeletonized blued hands, which point to hours and minutes.

Giving life to the aforementioned functions is a hand-wound caliber DB 2115 movement.

Embellished and assembled by hand, it boasts 29 jewels and beats to the rhythm of 28,800 vibrations per hour. The mechanism also incorporates twin barrels, which work in parallel to deliver power for 6-day autonomy.

Extremely reliable, this caliber seats inside a titanium case. It features the dimensions of 43 mm x 11.30 mm: diameter and height indicated respectively. The case of the new DB28 automatic watch is topped by a steel bezel.

The front side of the model is armed with a high quality glare-proofed sapphire crystal. Its solid hunter-type back part, meanwhile, is equipped with a power reserve display. The model is also fitted with “floating” type lugs and a winding crown, transferred from the standard place at 3 o’clock to a more unusual position at 12 o’clock.

Extremely comfortable to wear, the new De Bethune watch is teamed with an extra-supple alligator leather strap, which joins to a pin buckle.
