DB24 TIS1Z3 LIMITED EDITION OF 50 PIECESRegular price CHF. 39,000
Too much energy = mechanical wear and over-winding
not enough energy = insufficient winding
The energy of this sporty De Bethune watch is harnessed by a titanium/platinum oscillating weight and transmitted to the mainsprings via a going train. The mainsprings progressively coil around an arbor accumulating this energy. It is then systematically distributed to the watch movement. The maximum power reserve is achieved in a period of time that varies by several hours according to the wearer’s level of activity.
High “H” – avoids any surges of the rewinding spring
Middle “M” = normal activity
Low “L” – ensures a minimum winding sufficient to maintain regulating performance
This watch is a highly technical piece of design, not just because of its mechanism but also for its highly complex titanium structure. The dial, hands, balance, bridges, case rings, and rotor are all made from titanium which is a highly complex metal to work with requiring high frequency (microlight) milling, very fine sandblasting, and heating at very high temperature. The titanium and steel hands are set at three levels easy-to-read – a unique De Bethune design.
The ultimate in sporty-looking watches, this watch has a 12-hour segmented grey and blued titanium dial with a grey bezel and eight-hour indexes indicating the equal number hours. The rugged hands are in grey and blued titanium and the outer dial/bezel fixing is by special rugged De Bethune titanium screws.
Now you have the chance to own this one of 50-piece limited edition, restored by our own watchmakers with a full refurbishment and testing to make sure the timepiece still meets our own high standards, and for your peace of mind, it has a new De Bethune Certified Preowned two year guarantee, new strap and original De Bethune box.
