No spherical moon phases-but a 30-second tourbillon
So far, the main difference between this model and the previous DB28 Steel Wheels model is aesthetics, but there are huge differences in functionality. There is no spherical moon phase at 6 o’clock, because Flageollet and his team need space to replace “normal”-what is normal in De Bethune’s world? – The regulator with the brand’s incredible tourbillon has brought us more blue tones along the way.
The De Bethune tourbillon is different from other tourbillons on the market for many reasons. On the one hand, its cage completes a full rotation in just 30 seconds, instead of the usual 60 seconds. On the other hand, it beats at a high-speed frequency of 36,000 vph (5 Hz).
It also has the lightest cage on the market, and although it contains 63 components, it weighs only 0.18 grams. The lightest of these components tilts the balance to an extremely small 0.0001 g!
Flageollet has created the De Bethune tourbillon specifically for modern watches, ensuring that it can meet today’s dynamic needs. Therefore, the tourbillon frame is as light as possible, runs at maximum frequency, and has absolute minimum weight/inertia.
The regulator includes a high-performance titanium alloy balance wheel with a platinum weight that was patented in 2016 to maintain a stable speed. The internal balance spring patented in 2006 has a flat end curve and a triple chute damping system to prevent it from vibrating due to vibration. The escape wheel is made of silicon, with perfect geometry, lightness and resistance.
Other interesting mechanical elements
Patented in 2004 (the year De Bethune was founded), the self-adjusting dual main barrel provides a healthy 5-day power reserve. This power reserve is shown to the owner in a discrete manner-and only the owner and anyone he or she chooses. ..
The back is much lower-key than it might have rights (but then again, when there is so much beauty on the front that makes you happy for years, who will look at it?).
Against the background of the central splint decorated with pearl patterns, we see the power reserve rack, some springs and wheels, as well as an element that is very important to the owner: a power reserve scale engraved on a blue titanium ring and a Pointing to the blue steel hand indicating the movement. The state of the mainspring.
The delicate and lovely mechanism; the long and thin frame that drives the hands seems to slide on the movement, proving the precision of this De Bethune delicacy.
The DB28 steel wheel sapphire tourbillon is a window to understand Bethune’s soul. If this soul speaks to you, I can only say one thing: you are as lost in the love of this brand as I am. For the sake of all of us, I hope it can achieve more and more success.
