De Bethune DB28 steel wheel blue: the great essence of distillation
Distillation (noun): The essential meaning or the most important aspect of extracting something, whether it is an object, experience or thought.
Sometimes in life, a series of personal experiences can be attributed to an instant: everything that is learning or questioning becomes the focus, and true understanding is in control.
This example may be called Enlightenment, Epiphany or Light Bulb (aka Eureka!). But we don’t need Archimedes or Einstein to have such a moment; in fact, it happens to everyone at some point, even though some people focus on deliberately creating such moments. One of the key aspects of creating such a moment is the art of distillation.
Using the most important and basic components of things to understand its true meaning is a challenging but valuable task. Great artists and designers are constantly seeking to extract emotions and experiences into a work of art.
At the same time, great engineers dissected the concept of distillation as a problem until the most basic components were isolated and resolved. This part is the philosophy behind the phrase “Keep it simple, stupid” (I describe it extensively in the face of complexity, simplicity rules: Constantine Chaygin genius Temporis).wholesale replica Richard Mille RM 011 Le Mans Classic Titanium Watch
But distillation does not always lead to the Eureka moment; sometimes it can lead to a return form, back to the root of all its beginnings.
Now a watch brand in that place is De Bethune; after the recent change of ownership, De Bethune is returning to what is best: making superb watches, embodying modernity and superior technology (not De Bethune has stopped doing so).
De Bethune is now focused on refining the essence of its watches, starting with the DB28 steel wheels and gradually advancing the limited edition DB28 Steel Wheels Blue to the next level.
The essence of De Bethune
The re-launch of De Bethune began in the 2018 SIHH with DB28 steel wheels, a new product of the iconic DB28 that has been the backbone of the brand for many years.
The DB28 steel wheel is a watch that records the complete history of the brand and refines it into the essence of De Bethune.
A few months later, in Basel World in 2018, De Bethune launched the limited edition DB28 Blue Steel Wheels, which you may have guessed is almost entirely blue.replica ZENITH 2018 PILOT TYPE 20 EXTRA SPECIAL 29.1940.679/21.C800 watch
Oh, De Bethune Blue: It can almost define the atmosphere of De Bethune alone. Rich, cool, vibrant, deep and mysterious, and also a cherry on De Bethune cake. Combining all the features of steel wheels, blue covers more of the brand’s highlights.
When I think of De Bethune, I think of a clear lug (check); a spherical moon phase (yes); a titanium balance wheel (of course); a polished spherical mark (you know); a triangular main bridge (you are joking) Triple) shock absorption balance bridge (absolute); excellent hand (oh, yes); display power reserve mechanism (simple); silicon escape wheel (no doubt); most importantly, highly polished heat Blue titanium (Do I even need to mention it?).
The only thing I can think of is the DB28 Steel Wheels Blue, an ultra-fine star made of tiny polished stitching, spread over a wide polished blue titanium dial. But De Bethune dealt with this problem with DB25 Starry Varius, so I can forgive me for not participating in this.
DB28 Steel Wheels Blue refines the essence of De Bethune.
DB28 steel wheel blue: welcome details
Steel Wheels Blue is really a detail, so the facts surrounding this piece are simply fantastic. It is basically the same as the DB28 steel wheel, the main difference is the appearance. The Steel Wheels also use the DB28 calibre, but there are some minor updates on the side of the skeletonized dial.buy replica Hublot MP Limited Editions Complications Watch
The DB28 calibre is equipped with an automatic adjustment double main barrel, providing a healthy six-day power reserve and an updated high-performance titanium balance with gold weight for improved isochronism. The adjuster also features De Bethune’s internal balance spring with a proprietary curve and triple-slide damping.
One of the biggest visual features on the front, the uniqueness of the steel wheel and the steel wheel blue model is the exposed dial that reveals the underlying transmission, which is rare for De Bethune despite its brand style. Just right. . The mainspring and other wheels are also open work, making the dial feel lighter.
Further, the Star Trek-esque main bridge is also cut into a thin arrow shape to provide more visibility to the movement.
There is a microcrystalline engraving on the bridge similar to the DB28 GS, but it does not follow the shape of the bridge, but instead mimics the Côtesde De Bethune pattern, creating a new depth for the dial. Depth is a common thing on the De Bethune dial, the movement structure, the three-dimensional spherical moon phase and the polished spherical hour markers highlight the three-dimensionality.
The hand is also unique, further emphasizing visual depth. The hour hand is actually a rocket-shaped sapphire crystal with polished and blue steel strips on the edges and a pointed blue steel insert in the middle to create a transparent and complex shape.
The minute hand is a somewhat hollow blue steel pointer with pierced arrow detail. Unlike some other models, seeing the tiny hands bent down to fit the dial, these pointers are largely flat because the chapter rings around the edges rise to meet them.Best quality swiss cheap watches
De Bethune DB28: The difference is in the eyes of the beholder
The rear of the movement is roughly similar to other DB28 models, with a power reserve indicator on the back. The exquisiteness of the mechanism is lovely; the long, thin frame of the drive indicator seems to slide on the movement, which proves the precision inside each De Bethune.
But here, we reached the biggest difference between the steel wheel and the steel wheel blue: incredible azure tone. The steel wheel blue uses the DB28 blue tourbillon, and almost the entire watch and movement are beautiful blue, creating such a striking appearance, I often imagine its gorgeous (serious).
The blue dial on the steel wheel, chapter ring, hour mark, balance bridge, triangle bridge, bezel, crown, lugs, watch back, rear sports board and bridge are all blue. The open gear drive on the dial features polished steel and provides a strong contrast at the center. At the rear, the power storage rack, central bridge, springs and wheels are also polished steel for comparison.
The back screws of the case are not hot blue, but every other part is. Even more impressive is that blue is not an added coating or anything, but a true metallurgical reaction (oxidation), which is difficult to achieve with precise implementation.
Blue matching from different metals and different finishes was a very cumbersome task, and De Bethune succeeded in getting brilliant colors (literally).
When I heard the announcement of De Bethune’s new investors in the fall of 2017, I was anxiously awaiting the upcoming events without disappointing.
