De Bethune ←
This is the big daddy!! Isn’t it so nice to see when a brand just gets everything right?! It’s quite possibly the most stunning perpetual calendar watch of the modern era. From the calendar windows, to the 3D moonphase, heat blued starry sky, perfectly blued hands, etc comes an incredible mix of modern and classic. And this one is the most sought after combination.
The case is platinum, rare for De Bethune. The dial is actually made out of pink gold with hand-guilloché and is just to die for. The movement is automatic and features a ton of innovations:
Self-regulating twin barrel*
Titanium/platinum balance – balance-spring with flat terminal curve*
Triple pare-chute shock-absorbing system*
Titanium/platinum oscillating weight
Spherical moon-phase indication accurate to a degree of one lunar day every 122 years*
This is one of the most desirable pieces in the entire DB collection and very hard to find.
