The heart of this timepiece is the manually winding DB2009v4 movement, visible through a sapphire crystal case back. It features De Bethune’s signature balance wheel, meticulously crafted to enhance functionality and precision. This balance wheel is a marvel of engineering, combining titanium and white gold weights for optimal inertia and reliability. Its intricate design ensures the perfect midpoint gravity centre, with a flat curve fixed externally and a variable blade thickness for superior concentric development.

Adding to the allure is the De Bethune hairspring, a pivotal component in mechanical watchmaking, designed for impeccable centre-of-gravity maintenance. The intricate structure of the material is preserved, ensuring neither stress nor bending, while the flat curve acts as an effective shock absorber. This meticulous craftsmanship results in a 20% increase in power reserve efficiency, extending it to an impressive 5 days.

With a titanium and silicon construction, the tourbillon boasts a frequency of 36,000 vibrations/hour and a cage rotating every thirty seconds. It’s an exemplar of adaptation to the modern wristwatch, enhancing precision under rapid and erratic wrist movements.

Complementing its technical prowess is the comfort and aesthetic appeal of the watch. The case, made entirely from polished blued grade 5 titanium, features a microlight finish that extends to the sides. The floating lugs, a patented De Bethune innovation, adapt to wrist size and movements, ensuring a comfortable fit. The Microlight finish of the baseplate extends to the outer edge of the case, a testament to De Bethune’s attention to detail.
