De Bethune presents a green dial version of its DB27 Titan Hawk. Available in a limited edition of 10 numbered pieces, this new edition features a 43 mm case in grade 5 titanium and a green microlight dial with sandblasted steel minute hands with hand-polished steel tips.
Revived in 2018 with the new AUTOV2 self-winding movement, the DB27 Titan Hawk draws its inspiration from the design and technology of its predecessors while adding an innovative touch.
At Basel-world 2018, the brand unveiled DB27 Titan Hawk in two dial versions: silver-toned or blue. In 2021, De Bethune welcomes a green dial version.
The new DB27 Titan Hawk with green dial is equipped with the latest AUTOV2 caliber, hour, minute, second, which features a single barrel providing 60 hours of power reserve. The last titanium balance with white gold inserts remains visible on the back of the watch. Developed in-house, the movement is equipped with an optimized oscillating weight made of titanium and tungsten alloy.
Each detail is rethought and reworked to find the elegance and readability of an object above all functional. Juxtaposing Roman numerals and Arabic numerals, the reading of the time is given around rings located at the periphery of the dial. The time display on the green dial is punctuated by sandblasted steel hands with hand-polished white tips.
The new DB27 Titan Hawk timepiece is accompanied by a khaki green canvas strap. The watch boasts all the De Bethune codes: the patented mobile lugs, the crown at 12 o’clock, a microlight decoration on the middle and the green microlight dial.
