De Bethune DBS Watch Sparkling with Diamonds

Nov 13, 2008
De Bethune unveils a majestic interpretation of its iconic DBS watch. The timepiece will be available only upon individual order.

The case of the De Bethune DBS watch is crafted in 18K white gold. The jewelry creation sparkles with 104 baguette-cut diamonds, 633 brilliant-cut diamonds and 44 single cut-diamonds. The crown, found at 12 o'clock, is also diamond-set.

The outer part of the dial, paved with diamonds, shows off cabochon sapphires that replaced the hour markers. This dazzling outer part frames a flame-blued center, making one think of a clear night sky. Accentuating the nocturnal effect, the artisans of the brand drill micro-holes in the metal, expanded to acquire the shape of tiny stars, and then filled in with yellow gold.

The dial reveals the De Bethune signature three-dimensional, spherical moon-phase display. It is crafted from gold, and sparkles with diamonds and sapphires. Below the 6 o'clock hour marker you will notice the curved aperture of a power reserve indicator, presented via a small blued steel hand.

The De Bethune DBS jewelry watch accommodates an exclusive manually wound De Bethune movement - the DB2105 caliber. Besides the innovative moon-phase and power reserve complicated features, the movement, beating at a frequency of 28,800 alternations per hour, incorporates a unique escapement. Developed by Denis Flageollet, the balance wheel is crafted from a combination of two exceptional materials - platinum and titanium, featuring a spring with a flat terminal curve. A triple parachute anti-shock system provides the regulating organ with perfect protection. Due to the double mainspring barrels, the movement gives an advantage of a 6-day power reserve.

The De Bethune DBS watch embraces the wrist with an alligator leather strap fitted with a white gold ardillon buckle paved with 130 round brilliant diamonds.
