De Bethune DB25 Starry Varius 5N Rose Gold

De Bethune presents a new 5N Rose Gold version of its DB25 Starry Varius watch. With its personalized constellation at the centre of its dial, its revisited lugs and an original 42mm case, this watchmaking icon is a contemporary classic.

With its DB25 Starry Varius watch, De Bethune offers a whole new take on the sky, framed by a slender case in polished rose gold 5N case measuring 8.8mm thick. Personalised 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 open worked lugs, the DB25 Starry Varius in rose gold is not only pleasant to wear; it also reflects 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 case-back 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 calibre 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.
