De Bethune DB28 steel wheel sapphire tourbillon
Under the sign of mechanical exclusivity, Debessan proposed the “DB28 steel wheel sapphire gyroscope“. The sapphire transparency that blends with the famous DE BETHUNE TOURBILLON is integrated into the movement, which is the lightest ever.
August 2020: On the occasion of the Geneva Watch Festival, De Bethune showcases the iconic DB28 steel wheel with tourbillon for the first time. The triangle bridge of the movement and the two lens barrel caps are made of sapphire crystal. The DB28 steel rim sapphire tourbillon is loyal to the genes of “Maison” located in Sainte Croix in the Swiss Jura Mountains, perfectly continuing the heritage of its predecessors: perfect balance, modern and bold The aesthetic concept and excellent mechanical performance. Only 10 pieces are limited.
2020: DB28’s tenth anniversary celebration year.
When the first DB28 was launched in 2010, De Bethune’s idea was to show a timepiece with its own personality and an absolute futuristic color to the art of watchmaking. The design naturally follows the creative spirit of the watch factory. Inspired by pocket watches, the unique shape of the case and the 12 o’clock crown are the unique modern aesthetic features of De Bethune. It is at this time that De Bethune’s unique and innovative floating lug patent has its full meaning, which aims to significantly improve comfort. Since then, DB28 has been named the best watch of the year and won the Aiguille d’Or award at the Geneva Grand Watch (GPHG) in 2011. .
After going through a series of modern iterations from the latest DB28XP, DB28XP Starry Sky and DB28XP Tourbillon to Skybridge to Blue of Blue, De Bethune has found new ways to reveal this new aspect time and time again. The design, its smooth and tight lines can already be recognized immediately.
January 2018: The birth of the DB28 steel wheel
DB28 steel wheels came out in 2018, presented with a transparent and light logo, the idea of opening the dial reveals the contemporary architectural style of its movement. DB28 steel wheels can be identified by its triangular bridge (the symbol of De Bethune) and the moon at 6 o’clock. Its charming shape has many different forms such as hemispherical, concave, spherical, etc., thus obtaining a dynamic building effect. All this is related to the perception layer and relief, the level of light and shadow and reflection. This watch is cut from titanium, and the light on the wrist is bright, showing the contemporary architectural fusion of space, time and light.
August 2020: Launch of DB28 steel sapphire tourbillon
We must return to the source of inspiration that nourishes the creativity of Denis Flageollet, founder and watchmaker of De Bethune: the passion to celebrate the great watchmaking of the Enlightenment, And this inspiration is cleverly reinterpreted in contemporary masterpieces that incorporate ancestral knowledge and knowledge. At the same time, it has the latest technological progress.
Sapphire crystal is most commonly used to make copy swiss watch cases and has played a new role in De Bethune. Here, it found a new profession in the form of the iconic triangle-shaped bridge and the cover of each of the two barrels. Blue represents the bridge and transparent represents the lid. These elements are integrated into the movement to allow light to enter the game and provide new reflections-and literally sink the eyes into the mechanism.
The transparency of these sapphire crystal parts not only amplifies the movement, but also provides another kind of illumination, new brilliance and flashing effects, highlighting the tensioned lines, structure and different levels of movement, bringing fascinating Sense of depth.
Each sapphire crystal component is surrounded by polished titanium.
Contemporary reinterpretation of stained glass Denis Flageollet has always been in the spirit of further developing things as much as possible, designing sapphire glass components, and cutting them to the greatest extent through lasers to make them compatible with The shape, bulge, angle and teeth fit perfectly-the bridge and barrel cover-are all perfectly adjusted, just like the lace of sapphire crystal.
In addition, a polished titanium ring was added to surround each barrel cover. The appearance of the triangular bridge and the sapphire crystal tube cover is unprecedented, and the cutting of the glass is emphasized by the polished metallic gray lines on the periphery, highlighting the absolute contemporary beauty.
The thickness of the sapphire crystal varies according to the composition. The sapphire of the bridge is 1 mm thick to ensure functional rigidity, while the sapphire of the barrel cover is 0.3 mm thick. These glass components will never compromise durability, and certainly will not compromise their reliability – ensuring robustness and perfect resistance to small daily shocks.
De Bethune handmade hand
De Bethune replica has been making his own watches in l’Auberson’s workshop. Therefore, the DB28 steel wheel sapphire tourbillon has a particularly fine hour hand. It consists of 4 different elements: for technical reasons, a barrel made of steel, a titanium insert, a matt titanium inner component, and a polished titanium outer component. Each component works differently. The result is unique.
Behind is the low-key movement. The power reserve indicator can be read with blue-colored steel hands, or it can be made by hand in De Bethune’s workshop as customary.
According to Bethune’s tourbillon: Why is it so small, so light, and so fast?
Among the many complications and functions, De Bethune has become a master watch discipline, and the tourbillon usually plays a leading role. The DB28 steel wheel has taken a step towards sophistication and extreme refinement with its moon. Today, it has been replaced by a tourbillon, which has an ultra-lightweight cage (0.18 grams, the lightest weight ever). It rotates every thirty seconds and contains a total of 63 components (the lightest component weighs less than 0.0001 grams!).
Nowadays, the watch is subjected to more actions than it can be safely and fully compensated. Location changes are usually sudden and sometimes chaotic. Indeed, under normal wearing conditions, the power exerted by a mechanical watch movement seems quite amazing. Just as Breguet invented the tourbillon to meet the limitations of nautical watches, De Bethune designed the tourbillon for the new power of the watch.
The laws of physics are clear: in order to compensate for the absolute force of wrist movement, the tourbillon cage must be as light as possible and run at the maximum frequency and rotation speed, while the weight and inertia should be under the absolute minimum. Only in this way can it perform its functions in the watches manufactured today.
The tourbillon is made of titanium and silicon and beats 36,000 times per hour. It has an ultra-lightweight cage (0.18 g, the lightest ever), which rotates every thirty seconds and includes 63 components (the lightest component weighs less than 0.0001 g). Just like flying insects, miniature exoskeletons hold them together. Therefore, it is so small, so light, and so fast that De Bethune’s tourbillon can perform its functions more easily to fit today’s best replica watches review.
The futuristic shape of the tourbillon bridge holds the tourbillon perfectly in place symmetrically from both sides.
