De Bethune presents here an elegant automatic watch in which the care to each detail, the beauty of its mechanics and of its style perfectly reflects De Bethune’s manufacturing philosophy and spirit. A timepiece of pleasant daily use thanks to its self-winding movement with 6 days power reserve and with an elegant and essential dial that offers exceptional legibility.
The 44 mm-diameter round case is inspired by a drum shape and features slender and resolutely classic lines, subtly enlivened by the hollowed lugs characteristic of the DB25 collection.
This watch is fitted with the automatic calibre DB2024, entirely manufactured in-house. It contains unique elements such as a self-regulating twin barrel, the De Bethune patented titanium/platinum balance wheel of the third generation, the triple pare-chute shock-absorbing system and the titanium/platinum oscillating weight.
In solid white gold, the case with the “tambour” shape displays a sparkling dial made of blued titanium with microlight decoration. The minute markers are mirrored on the glass to give the effect of brilliance. The hour markers are indicated by small blued steel spheres.
Now you have the chance to acquire this iconic model again, restored by our own watchmakers with a full refurbishment and testing to make sure the timepiece meets our own high standards. For your peace of mind, it has a new De Bethune Certified Preowned with two years guarantee, a new strap and an original De Bethune box.
