De Bethune - DB28 Kind of Two Jumping GMT

De Bethune presented the DB Kind of Two Jumping GMT, a double sided watch offering a different time zone on each of its dials. Price: CHF 195,000
In 2022, De Bethune celebrates its 20th anniversary with the release of the DB Kind of Two Jumping GMT, a double sided watch offering a different time zone on each of its dials.

De Bethune DB28 Kind of Two Jumping GMT

The DB Kind of Two Jumping GMT is perfectly reversible and can be worn on either side according to the mood of the moment and the time zone chosen. This model houses a mechanism based on a complex system of gears and pinions arranged on the front or back of the watch enabling the hands to turn in the right direction, regardless of the dial chosen.

The front side of the watch displays a dial featuring a sleek and contemporary design that highlights the mechanics. The hour is centered on the balance wheel at 6 o'clock, while minutes are indicated by a blued index on the periphery.

A symmetrical deltoid-shaped bridge is positioned in the centre contributing to the overall sense of harmony of an ensemble characterised by the alternation of matt and glossy components as well as by different thicknesses and levels.

The GMT side reveals a dial based on more traditional aesthetic inspiration, with a finely hand-guilloché central part surrounded by the numerals already featured on the dials of De Bethune models such as the DB8 and DB10.

Based on a double display of hours and minutes on both sides, the GMT function is very easy to use. Firstly, the owner sets his reference time, known as home time and indicated by the hour and minute hands on the contemporary side, by means of the crown in position 3.

Then, the second time zone on the GMT side, called classic, can be adjusted with the crown pulled out to position 2.

The system of floating lugs - a signature of the brand - seems made for the "pivoting" of the case. Redesigned especially for the DB Kind of Two, these elements have been equipped on each side with a little rotating mechanism made up of 28 components. For reliability purposes, they are manufactured in stainless materials such as surgical steel or titanium, thus enabling them to withstand the external aggressions of water, humidity, temperature variations and continuous contact with the skin.

Thanks to a cam, a small "notch" allows the watch case to be instinctively and perfectly positioned in line with the floating lugs. The round case rotates on its central axis and can be positioned, front or back, in a perfectly smooth way.

Crafted from polished Grade 5 titanium, the 43.3 mm x 11.4 mm offers a beautiful balance with the floating lugs and its elegant crown totally integrated at 12 o'clock (or 6 o'clock depending on the side chosen).

The DB2517 hand-wound movement is comprised of 394 parts and beats at a frequency of 5 Hz (36,000 vibrations per hour). A 4-day power reserve is ensured by a self-regulating twin barrel. This is the 30th in-house calibre designed by the Swiss brand.

The De Bethune DB28 Kind of Two Jumping GMT ref. DBK2V1 has a price of CHF 195,000. debethune.com
