Introducing: The De Bethune DB28 Kind Of Blue Tourbillon Meteorite
When you first glance at this watch, you’ll notice something strange. The case is blue. Like, splendid blue, and it’s not because of some peculiar PVD covering. De Bethune really fire blues titanium for its watches in an interaction like how most watchmakers blue screws. Here however it’s been executed on essentially every obvious piece of metal. The outcome is a watch with a ton of visual effect that actually feels comfortable on the wrist, particularly at 42.6mm across and simply 9.7mm thick.
The meteorite dial adds some tone to the generally all-blue watch.
Sitting at the focal point of the entirety of this however is a fragment of a genuine meteorite. This one is taken from a meteorite that arrived in Santiago del Estero, Argentina, around 5,000 years prior. Notwithstanding being completely cool, it adds some tone to the watch with pink and purple tones that look like the dusk or a cloud in space. That is facilitated by the way that little white gold stars have been added. It’s amazing to the point that you could without much of a stretch miss the exquisite tourbillon down at six o’clock.
On the opposite side, you have the DB2019v3 development, which has a force hold pointer on the converse also. Indeed, even the development is brilliant blue, complemented with the rose gold force hold pointer and rose gold caseback. The blue and rose combo is particularly pleasant here.
The back shows a force save marker incorporated into the movement.
This probably won’t be a watch for everybody, except in case you’re into very specialized watchmaking, the utilization of irregular materials, and references (strict and more beautiful) to space, it is difficult to envision a cooler watch than this.
The De Bethune DB28 Kind Of Blue Tourbillon Meteorite is estimated at 280,000 CHF (around $277,200 at season of distributing) and will be formally delivered one week from now at Baselworld.
