Aesthetic BLACK Sometimes mirror-polished for a shiny look, sometimes satin-brushed for a matt finish, black zirconium is a key element in the composition of the cases and floating lugs of the DB28. The multiple ways in which the light plays across the material and its various finishes reveal countless different tones ranging from anthracite grey to intense black. This pleasing aesthetic effect was already greatly appreciated on the DB28 dials which opened a window onto the movement alternating between the sophisticated elegance of the hand-polished bridges and the understated charm of Cotes de Geneve reinterpreted by De Bethune. Technological BLACK In its research on materials and new processes, De Bethune saw the choice to machine zirconium as a natural sustainable alternative for the colour black. The hardness of the metal as together stable oxidation that is unaffected by daily changes in temperature twin assets that guarantee the resistance and durability of the exterior of a timepiece. Adorned with its famous crown at 12 o'clock, the DB28 which is known for the surprising lightness of its case and the comfort of its floating lugs - a patented system that adapts to the size of the wrist and its various movements - is as supple as ever, since the lightness of titanium is replaced by that of zirconium. New variations around a flagship model, featuring a contemporary design paradoxically inspired by that historical pocket watches, highlight the technical breakthroughs achieved by the Manufacture and the meticulous decoration work of its artisans, custodians of age-old expertise.
