  • Catalogue Essay

    De Bethune is most certainly one of the most exciting brands to have been born in this Millennium. Their designs are bold, brazen and may speak to the free thinking artistically inclined collector but one element that the collecting community agrees upon is the amazing ultra-progressive movements that drive the watches.

    The present DB25 perpetual calendar features easy to read indications with the day and month indicated via apertures on the sides of the dial, date at 6 o’clock and the brand’s signature three dimensional spherical moon phase display made of titanium and platinum and accurate up to 122 years. A leap year indication is also placed below the moon display.

    The 425 component caliber features all the signature elements one has come to expect from this innovative maker: ¾ plate with starry décor, sandblasted and snailed by hand, balance bridge and rotor arms in blued titanium, self-regulating twin barrel, titanium and platinum balance wheel, De Bethune balance spring with flat terminal curve and triple pare-chute shock absorbing system amongst others.

    In almost unworn condition, the present DB25 is a milestone of contemporary haute horlogerie and a must have for the collector looking for something different that only De Bethune can offer.
