Combination of polished titanium and sapphire, plus tourbillon.
This year, independent watchmaker De Bethune celebrated the 10th anniversary of its most famous DB28 watch. The Jubilee began with the DB28XP series (XP for printing plates) launched earlier this year, and three stunning new models were introduced. Now, as part of the new models launched during the Geneva Watch Fair, the brand has adopted a modern, hollowed out “steel wheel” concept and increased the transparency and complexity of sapphire in the form of a tourbillon. Meet the impressive new De Bethune DB28 steel wheel Saphir Tourbillon.
Like the previous DB28 steel wheels without a tourbillon, the idea is to reveal as much as possible the technology and decoration of the movement-we can blame De Bethune for this, the movement is indeed worth seeing. Now, with the brand’s iconic elements-triangular bridges, the use of polished titanium and blue elements (typical case)-a new and rather complex model has been introduced, the DB28 Steel Wheels Saphir Tourbillon.
The box retains the specific structure of the collectibles, and has a circular central container on which hinged lugs are fixed. Thanks to the articulated lugs, despite the 43 mm diameter, the watch still brings a pleasant feel to the wrist and is more compact than you would expect. The case is made of highly polished titanium and has a bright, reflective surface that is far stronger than stainless steel. As usual, the crown is located at 12 o’clock-which is an ode to an old pocket watch-and the watch is worn on an alligator leather strap.
Transfer to the dial, a lot of work is going on, but De Bethune’s unique appearance has been fully respected. First you can see the triangular bridge, which is made of sapphire. Below are two lens barrels, the drum cover is also made of blue sapphire, providing an unobstructed view of the internal mechanical operation. One thing to note is that all sapphire elements are framed by thin titanium stripes, which is an ode to ancient stained glass windows. The frame of the dial is an hour chronograph ring, blue titanium with hour polished pearls. The hands are another impressive element of the replica watches for sale. They are made by hand and consist of many elements-especially the hour hand, its central steel case and polished matte titanium elements.
The tourbillon is positioned at 6 o’clock, but it is replica De Bethune, so the tourbillon is not your classic adjuster. First, it is a fast stirrer because we are talking about 30 seconds of rotation and 36,000 vibrations per hour (or 5 Hz). However, it is ultra-lightweight. Despite its 63 components, it weighs only 0.18 grams, making it the lightest tourbillon cage ever. The lightest ingredient is only 0.0001 grams. The rear of the movement is much more discreet than the front, but the decoration is still top-notch.
Traditional advanced system is completed in unconventional form
Although Starfleet’s chic De Bethune residence style and alluring charm have everything it should, the traditional double-sided decoration is still active in L’Auberson, Switzerland.
Steel dials are everywhere, and black polishing is the highest surface treatment standard. The most impressive execution effect can be seen on the continuously rounded balance bridge.
There is too much black (or flat) polish on the dial base and can even double as a signal mirror. There is more black polish in the boundary of Bethune Mountain below the hand. The screw head includes poli noir (black polished) and chamfered screw grooves.
Titanium-both emissive and blue-occupies the main body of the dial. The framed titanium alloy barrel bridge in the center shows a world-class luster on its periphery.
De Bethune’s design team went all out on the dial, but the appearance of the back cover also attracted a lot of attention. The blue titanium alloy flange includes the scale of the DB28 six-day power reserve indicator, and the visible mechanism includes a beautiful straight-grained satin coating.
Visible engine rotation range is wide, full of bridges between the entire motherboard and power reserve system.
No details can escape consideration. The slender and comfortable crocodile leather belt is equipped with high-grade crocodile skin scales on both sides, which is more durable than the more common hybrid crocodile leather calfskin belt used by almost all other brands.
The small proportions on the underside of the strap contrast with the large rectangular pattern on the top. The highly stylized De Bethune titanium pin buckle echoes the sculptural form of the lugs in a carefully designed parallel design.swiss replica watches
