De Bethune 2012

De Bethune: DB28/2012

In November 2011, the DB28 by De Bethune received the Aiguille d'Or, the ultimate distinction of the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève. De Bethune celebrated its victory with a special, limited edition of this iconic watch.

The minute hand of the revisited DB28 is embellished with a baguette-shaped insert in rose gold - the aiguille d'or. The distinctive shape of the mirror-polished titanium case, inspired by pocket watches and accentuated by a spherical moon phase and the silicon/palladium balance, features an exhibition back that reveals a finely decorated movement with gold wheels and a gold hand for the linear power reserve.

The pure style, taut lines, exquisite handcrafted finishes and slender case of this DB28 are the hallmarks of De Bethune's contemporary expression of the watchmaker's art.
