De Bethune Titan Hawk

Out of Stock

This DB27 Titan Hawk ‘Green’ forms part of a 10 piece limited edition introduced in 2021. Apart from the captivating dial, the short lug grade 5 titanium case is equally impressive. 

De Bethune

In 2002, De Bethune was founded by David Zanetta and Denis Flageollet. Prior to that, Flageollet, co-founded THA society with François-Paul Journe, the company was tasked with creating movements for other notable brands. Watchmaking runs in Flageollet’s blood he represents the fourth generation of the Flageollet family to become a watchmaker. Since its inception De Bethune successfully respected traditions of old whilst being at the forefront of technical innovations, as a result, the brand boasts some of the most impressive calibres made to date. Apart from the impressive calibres, De Bethune does not shy away from the fusion of two different worlds, the Maestri Art DW5 Armilia and Dream Watch 6 are a fine examples of the artisanal know-how tied into Haute horology.  

The Origins of the DB27

The DB27 was originally introduced in 2012 to commemorate the brand’s 10 year anniversary. The DB27 combines the attributes of the DB28 contemporary lines with the DB25 classical and delicate spirit, resulting in simplicity while making no compromise in comfort and refinement. The DB27 Titan Hawk has had several generations, this particular example forms part of the second generation series. The second-generation essentially replaces the central date function in favour of sweeping seconds. The only common trait found across the collection is the use of Titanium for the cases. 

The Dial

The unique, Aston Martin like Green dial is the first time the brand has experimented with such a colour. At first glance, the Green dial may seem one-dimensional, upon, exposing it to different lighting the hues of Green appear to change ever so slightly. The use of guilloche or rather micro-light engraving is found at the centre of the dial, resulting in the dial being split into three parts and above is the classic arrow-head shaped ridge pattern signed ‘De Bethune’ and ‘Titan Hawk’. The overall depth of the dial is rather impressive and resembles a plate light surface due to the concaving outer dial. The use of both sliver toned Roman and Arabic numerals results in a fine contrast along the minute and hour sector of the dial. The skeletonise hands initially feature a frosted finish, towards the end, they transform into black polished arrows. 

The Movement

A majority of De Bethune’s are manually wound, this DB27 Titan Hawk is powered by calibre AutoV2. The movement features a 60-hour power reserve, a single barrel and beats at 28’800 vph. De Bethune is known for its unique blueing process and the movement makes use of this remarkable know-how. The movement also features a tungsten winding mass, it does not interrupt the view of the movement due to its positioning, which is thought to maximise winding efficiency.
