One of the most interesting booths to visit this year at BaselWorld is certainly the one of De Bethune
brand. The Swiss brand celebrated its 12 anniversary this year. De Bethune is well known for bringing
innovation to conventional complications. The DB29 Tourbillon Maxichrono watch marks a new
milestone in the history of the brand.
This model is limited to 20 pieces and is powered by an internal mechanical movement (caliber
DB2039) with manual winding tourbillon. It also reveals the gears of the watch on his sapphire back.
This movement was made in white gold, silicon and titanium.
The five central hands are controlled by a mono-push-button chronograph using concentric scales
instead of the basic sub-dials.
De Bethune has also filed a patent for his absolute clutch which improves chronograph mechanism
performance and correct existing problems.
