Independent Swiss watch manufacture De Bethune shows their boldness by adorning its DBS Collection with diamonds to reveal a dream creation DBL. The stones are harmoniously arranged on a case of white gold. The flame – blued dial sets off a completely gem-set moon phase display which rotates on its own axis.
Looking at it in minute details, there are 104 baguette-cut diamonds, 633 brilliant-cut diamonds and 44 single -cut(8/8) diamonds. As an ultimate touch even the winding crown at 12’o clock is set with diamonds. The indexes consists of 12 blue cabochon-cut sapphires.
This cascade of technology mean that these precious timepieces can guarantee outstanding accuracy as a result, among the other things, of a reduction of mechanical friction and the absorption of shocks.
All the steel parts of this movement are chamfered and polished by hand and the bridges are ornamented with the well known “Cote de Geneve” decoration. Finally, the power reserve of six days is discreetly displayed by and ingenious retractable hand at 6,o clock.
Note: The piece will be produced upon request only.
