Ask your average millionaire independent watch collector who is making some of the most interesting and annoying watches, and they are likely to mention fake De Bethune. We visited Geneva on the first day and showed you their artwork Dream Watch5. Now, we return to their bread and butter-DB28, this time the jump is called “Digitale”. “
DB28 Digitale has three different types of time display: digital display for jumping hours, analog display for minutes and spherical moon phase display. Although the 3d moon phase is undoubtedly De Bethune’s business card, the technical aspects of the minute display with retrograde function or the hour display with the patented time-jumping system cannot be ignored.
From 3 o’clock to 9 o’clock, the night sky driven by the impressive micro ball bearing mechanism is vividly depicted and drives the digital hours. The moon phase consists of two hemispheres, one in palladium and the other in flame blue steel. The moon phase of the DB28 Digitale will remain accurate for 1,112 years in a day.
At the rear of this new DB28, you will have the crazy and gorgeous movement DB2144, which has flame-blue steel parts and the exquisite Cotes de Geneve shape on the bridge.
At 6 o’clock, you can see De Bethune’s exclusive round silcon and platinum balance wheel. Behind the crown, you will see not the Geneva seal, but the De Bethune seal.
The case is made of ultra-light polished titanium alloy, coupled with the patented articulated lug system, making this 40mm best luxury watches very easy to use on the wrist.
