The admirers of the recently introduced DB29 Maxichrono Tourbillon will be happy to know that at BaselWorld 2014 De Bethune presented another mono-pusher chronograph with five central hands, the DB28 Maxichrono. This time without tourbillon and with a DB28 case.
The skeleton hands in polished black oxidised steel tell the time of day pointing to large black numerals in a modern typeface. The chronograph hands for elapsed hours and minutes are made of flame-blued steel while, for enhanced legibility, rose gold is used for the indicator of the chronograph minutes.
The chronograph pusher is paired with the crown positioned at 12 o'clock.
On the back, the window on the hand wound calibre DB2030, offering 5 days of power reserve, displays the architectural layout of the movement’s bridges in rose gold and polished steel.
Only twenty pieces of the DB28 Maxichrono will be issued in 2014.
