On the 10th anniversary of the establishment, De Bethune watch factory launched the first creation of the new DB27 series Titan Hawk watch.
The designer of the piece, David Zanetta, defines it as ‘committed to perfect service through legibility and functionality.’
At the Swiss village of L’ Auberson, experts crafted a 43 mm 5th grade titanium case, the Titan Hawk case and floating lugs, and the case back all show their delicate mirror polishing technology.
The patented floating lugs allow the watch size to be easily adjusted to suit different wrists and movements, to ensure that it meets the needs of the wearer, and the harmonious unification of comfort and modern aesthetic interest is exactly what De Bethune is used to.
The central calendar display circle surrounds the center of the hand-decorated dial, making it more silvery. The outer hour marker circle and minute display circle form a circle and highlight the numbers above.
Shear-type hands, including non-standard date hands, are all polished by hand in stainless steel at the De Bethune watch factory and baked in blue.

The DB27 Titan Hawk is equipped with a mechanism that proves that the technical director Denis Flageollet has mature technical characteristics. At the same time, he continues to expand and perfect his manufacturing technology knowledge. The bottom cover reveals that the silicon and platinum ring balance wheel is the brand’s latest self-winding self-winding movement that continuously generates power-driving the central hour, minute and date functions-the new movement is named S233 according to the proportion of silicon, with a six-day Power reserve.

The S233 movement combines major technological breakthroughs from De Bethune:
Self-regulating double bucket *-specifically designed to eliminate friction and effectively convey the maximum energy
Flat radian new silicon / platinum balance wheel *-Its special briskness makes this balance wheel reduce mechanical friction and provide an ideal inertia / mass ratio. The flat end circle arc structure is on the same level as the balance spring, which compensates for centrifugal action and promotes its fastening.
Triple shock absorber damping system * minimizes potential external influences and protects the balance spring balance.
