  • Catalogue Essay

    Using their signature avant-garde design and futuristic materials, independent Swiss watchmaker De Bethune debuted a subdued version of their iconic DB25 model as an elegant dress watch variant. The Midnight Blue version presently displayed features a white grand feu enamel outer ring with painted numerals, and an inner disc of polished blued titanium – a signature of the manufacture. The Breguet-style numerals, delicate pomme hands, and italic script are a nod to the old school of horology, while the 44mm diameter, skeletonized lugs, and impeccably engineered in-house automatic calibre DB2024 are a testament to the innovation and free-spirited nature of De Bethune creations.


A very fine pink gold wristwatch with grand feu enamel dial and six-day power reserve, accompanied by certificate of origin and presentation box.
