Elegance of form, nobility of material, perfection of finish. De Bethune presents the DB25 Starry Varius in a particularly refined version: in rose gold. The DB25 interpreted in a soft and warm precious metal, synonymous with subtle and discreet elegance. With its personalized constellation at the center of its dial, its revisited lugs, and an original 42mm case, the DB25 Starry Varius asserts itself as a contemporary classic of sophisticated purity whilst remaining true to watchmaking heritage.
“The cosmos, the heavens above… When you want to observe time in motion without any instruments, you look upwards. This is a recurrent theme in watchmaking,” explains Denis Flageollet, master watchmaker and founder of De Bethune. Over the past few years, star-studded dials have become an integral part of the history of the maison.
Today, for the first time, De Bethune offers a whole new take on the sky, framed by a slender case in polished rose gold case measuring 8.8mm thick, 42mm in diameter. Personalized according to a specific geographical location and a given date, the gold pins are fitted one by one on this star-studded sky, thus making each model truly unique. The Milky Way pattern is then gilded using the traditional gold leaf technique and enhanced by laser beam micro-milling.
With a refined case featuring perfectly integrated and openworked lugs, the DB25 Starry Varius in rose gold is designed to be not only pleasant to wear, but above all to reflect the brand’s characteristic elegance and refinement.
The display features patiently hand-polished rose gold hands reflecting the light and sweeping over exactly matching hour-markers set on a silver-toned ring.
The sapphire crystal caseback with its double anti-reflective coating reveals the impeccable craftsmanship of the movement incorporating the latest De Bethune technologies. Powered by the in-house mechanical manual winding DB2105 caliber oscillating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, entirely designed, developed and produced in De Bethune’s workshops, the DB25 Starry Varius in rose gold is equipped with the latest titanium balance wheel as well as the triple pare-chute shock-absorbing system.
With this interpretation, differently exquisite by the use of rose gold, the manufacture at L’Auberson has created an exceptional timepiece that fits perfectly on both men’s and women’s wrists. A watch of remarkable elegance that complements the De Bethune constellation.
