The De Bethune DB25 collection of luxury watches, with its round case, bullet lugs, and classically inspired design help the DB25 stand out from the brand’s other timepieces. Available in 40mm, 42mm, or 44mm sizing and in grade 5 titanium, Rose Gold, or White Gold, the DB25 is immediately identifiable thanks to its signature bullet lugs, which feature in integrated, hollow lug design, in contrast to the brand’s signature floating lug, as found on the DB27 or DB28.
The De Bethune DB25 is available in numerous variants and with myriad complications, including De Bethune’s signature Spherical Moon Phase (as in the De Bethune DB25 Moon Phase DB25LRS1V1), a GMT (as in the De Bethune DB25 Starry Varius GMT DB25VGTIS3), and the perpetual calendar (as in the De Bethune DB25QP). But few De Bethune models offer the true personalization available in models such as the De Bethune DB25 Starry Varius DB25VRS3. With a dial decorated with hand fitted white gold pins depicting the night sky, buyers could choose the date and location whose sky would be represented by the white gold inserts De Bethune would set into the heat blued grade 5 titanium dial, an evolution of their Starry Sky dials. These beautiful dials are visible through a sapphire crystal with double anti-reflective treatment rated to a hardness of 1800 vickers.
As with most De Bethune watches, the De Bethune DB25 is replete with modern technology at the cutting edge of contemporary watchmaking. A titanium balance wheel and the latest De Bethune balance spring with flat terminal curve can be found in every De Bethune movement, along with the triple pare-chute shock-absorbing system that helps set the brand apart. Movements are finished to a stunning level, with hand-polished chamfered steel parts mixed in with platinum and blued titanium parts.
The De Bethune DB25 is a perfect choice for the collector of refined taste or looking for something new and different. Explore our collection of pre-owned pieces, or learn more about De Bethune models here.
While the Starry Various is an eye-catching example in this collection, the DB25RM reference DB25WS1 has a subtle look flaunting titanium casing, a white dial, and elegant Roman numerals. It is a perfect choice for the collector who wants something fun without a lot of eclectic colors.
