WORDS FROM DB ON THE WATCH: @
The DB25 Moon Phase is one of our most classical and iconic models, a vision of understanding the past and present of watchmaking; history inspired design cues and the first watch to feature our silicon balance wheel, in the calibre DB2105V1. Now available nine years after its initial release.
A blend of aestheticism and technological innovation, for a pure, clean classic. An 18k rose gold case. Constructed out of three parts, a screw case back, bezel and a case-band with lugs all machines out of a single block of gold, which helped us create extremely slim but solid lugs, using a 5-axis machine process to avoid the need for welding.
This golden frame surrounds a vibrant dial of light and purity. It has everything from depth and texture to clarity. Twelve silver-toned hand-guilloché sectors radiate in the light, unique on account of the significantly skilled handwork carried out on each piece. Bold Roman numerals and the minute chapter ring create a historical feel.
Sitting at twelve o’clock is a three-dimensional moon-phase consisting of two hemispheres constructed from palladium and flamed-blued steel, set in a dramatic star-studded sky in blued mirror-polished steel, inlaid with rose gold stars. To create this sky, five different operations had to be carried out, starting with a steel sheet, little holes are pieced which are then enlarged into the shape of stars. Tiny pieces of gold are pressed into the metal sheet, which is then polished. Finally, this steel sheet is flame-blued to give it the colours of the sky. This moon-phase is another De Bethune Patent, with an accuracy of one lunar day every 122 years! Finishing of the dial is the hand-polished flame-blued steel curved hands. This curved design allows the hands to pass over the three-dimensional moon-phase unimpeded.
Inside the DB25 Moon-phase sits our DB2105V1 calibre. Constructed from 305 parts and 29 jewels, and an impressive six-days power reserve, ensured by a self-regulating twin barrel. The balance wheel is a combination of titanium and platinum. A De Bethune balance-spring with flat terminal curve is used (a lot of brands don’t have the technical know-how to manufacture their own balance spring), plus a silicon escape wheel, and our own designed triple pare-chute shock-absorbing system.
The DB25 Moon-Phase encapsulates our philosophy of respecting the culture and tradition of watchmaking and combine it with new technologies and understanding of Horology. "
