DB28 Skybridge MC
This timepiece is a perfect summary of highly aesthetic ambition and peerless technical precision. Skybridge embodies the entire repertoire of the Manufacture De Bethune. While classically inspired in terms of its round shape, its 12 o'clock crown and its hunter-type back borrowed from pocket watches, the ultra-light mirror-polished titanium case of the DB28 with its distinctive floating lugs nonetheless proclaim the collection's modern and indeed futuristic nature. A nocturnal window on infinity, Skybridge features a whole host of astonishing shimmering effects, in turn brilliant or intensely radiant with the blue that has been a House signiature for the past eleven years. AN eminent reference to the famous 18th century clocks, this star-studded sky in mirror-polished and blued titanium derives its power and beauty from its concave shape and its multiple decorations crafted in the company workshops in the village of L'Auberson. The spherical moon-phase display is accentuated by an arrow-shaped bridge that appears to be pointing towards infinity. Two flame-blued and mirror-polished steel hands gracefully sweep across a constellation delicately highlighted by a minute circle. The heart of this immensity is sprinkled with white gold and diamond stars. Topped with hour-markers resembling tiny suspended spheres, these sparkling splendours lend a sense of timeless depth to the celestial canopy.
