DB28XP Kind of Blue Tourbillon Sapphire

In our Home Hong Kong, De Bethune has proudly introduced its latest horological creation, the DB28XP Kind of Blue Tourbillon Sapphire. This exquisite timepiece, limited to just 25 pieces, artfully combines elements from two of De Bethune's iconic models, blending the grace of the DB28XP with the allure of the DB28 Kind of Blue Tourbillon. The introduction of sapphire elements adds a new dimension to this already captivating design.

A Creation by Denis Flageollet

Denis Flageollet, the mastermind behind De Bethune, personally unveiled this watch during his tour in Asia. This event allowed watch aficionados and collectors to connect with the brand's deep-rooted history and innovative spirit. The DB28XP Kind of Blue Tourbillon Sapphire stands as a symbol of De Bethune's relentless pursuit of horological perfection.

Color Blue

The DB28XP Kind of Blue Tourbillon Sapphire is a testament to De Bethune's mastery of color and design. Crafted from blued titanium, the timepiece exhibits a mesmerizing deep blue shade, unique to each watch due to the natural oxidation process. The dial, skillfully made in Microlight, adds a modern twist to the traditional guilloché technique, enhancing the watch's dynamic and architectural design.

Ultra-Thin Watchmaking

Embodying De Bethune's expertise in ultra-thin watchmaking, this model features the manually wound DB2009v4 movement. Visible through an opening at 6 o'clock, this movement is a result of De Bethune's ongoing innovations in physics and mathematics, aimed at improving watch functionality and precision.

Revolutionary Hairspring and Tourbillon

The watch is equipped with De Bethune's renowned hairspring, ensuring precise center of gravity maintenance. This innovation leads to improved concentricity, reduced height, and enhanced shock absorption. The centerpiece of this timepiece is its tourbillon, a marvel of lightweight design, weighing only 0.18 grams. Rotating every thirty seconds and operating at 36,000 vibrations per hour, it epitomizes De Bethune's commitment to accuracy and contemporary functionality.

Comfort and Style

The DB28XP Kind of Blue Tourbillon Sapphire's case is a blend of aesthetics and comfort. Made from polished blued grade 5 titanium with microlight casing, sapphire rods, and floating lugs, the watch adapts perfectly to the wearer's wrist. Its ergonomic design ensures a seamless fit, marrying form and function.


For the Connoisseur

Completing this horological masterpiece is a luxurious alligator leather strap paired with a titanium buckle, offering both comfort and elegance. The DB28XP Kind of Blue Tourbillon Sapphire is not just a timepiece; it's a celebration of De Bethune's dedication to the art of watchmaking, marrying innovation with classical elegance in a limited edition offering.
