Originally created to celebrate our 10th anniversary, the Titan Hawk became the first creation of the new DB27 collection. Taking the best of De Bethune’s technology, and a no-compromise approach for comfort and refinement with a less is more simplistic vision.

Finely crafted lines give the DB27 an elegance that may be admired from both sides. It followed our ongoing aesthetic quest, a creation that defines as “dedicated to serving beauty through the readability and functionality of the object”.

Expertly crafted in grade 5 titanium, displaying perfect mastery of the delicate mirror-polishing technique gracing this 43mm case. Our unique floating lugs are fitted with a patented system of springs that enables the watch to adjust to the wrist and to its wearer’s movements, in harmony with De Bethune’s consistent concern for comfort and for cutting-edge aesthetic appeal.


This underlying sense of style of the DB27 is continued onto the dial, a deep black grained dial catches the light in the centre thanks to the microlight accompanying a central calendar, which is surrounded by a chapter ring with Roman numerals, and minute circle featuring Arabic numerals with a rounded shape and raised in true De Bethune form. Our DNA design queues are also apparent in the architecture of the flame blued steel hands, with a cut-out design including the atypical shape date pointer are in steel, hand-polished and flame-blued in the De Bethune workshops, where time-honoured know-how is combined with technical mastery and artistic genius.


Going inside, the DB27 Titan Hawk is equipped with a six-day power reserve. A mechanism boasting the kind of proven technical features dear to co-founder and master watchmaker Denis Flageollet. A silicon and white gold annular balance wheel revealed through the case-back powers the self-winding in-house calibre S233 – driving the central hour, minute and date functions. The name S233 comes from the specific gravity of silicon a very important material for De Bethune as we have perfected it use of the years into our watch movements to reduce the effects of gravity and friction and increase accuracy. This ideally modular movement incorporates the main De Bethune technological breakthroughs, making it the most complete calibre of its generation.

This is a great example of everything De Bethune stands for, and the perfect watch to acquire if you are new to De Bethune.
