  • Catalogue Essay

    The De Bethune DB24 Power Sport is built for action with precise regulated winding functionality that gives its wearer full control. Ingenuous and innovative at the same time, the DB24 is equipped with a variable inertia winding system that enables adjustment of the speed ratios of the rotor based on the movement generated by the wearer’s wrist action. Its purpose, by means of a lever actuated via the winding crown alters the mode of activity. Indicated on both the periphery on the dial and on the back of the movement with three level of intensity, H M and L, the wearer can set the timepiece to H for sport mode to avoid any surges of the rewinding spring, M for normal everyday wear, or L for slow to ensure minimum winding is sufficient to maintain regulating performance.

    Powered by the calibre 2024 with a total of 274 components, energy can be harnessed by a titanium and platinum oscillating weight to guarantee optimal lightness according to the ideal inertia. Additionally, the movement features a patented triple pare-chute shock absorbing system with titanium bridge and ultralight balance wheel providing for a high degree of shock resistance.

    Debuted as part of the Tempus All Black commemorative editions with seven watchmaking houses in 2007, there are only 10 pieces of DB24 Tempus edition in black titanium made. The Tempus also known as The Temple of Time is an award-winning watch festival celebrated by The Hour Glass Singapore with numerous world premier timepiece showcased for the South East Asian market.
