One of the hottest places to visit at Baselworld is the De Bethune kiosk. The 12-year company is well known for its innovative spin on classic complications but the just launched DB29 Maxichrono Tourbillon represents a new milestone.
The limited edition model (just 20 will be available) is powered by an in-house mechanical hand-wound tourbillon movement (Calibre DB2039) that, uniquely, opens to the back via an invisible hinge to reveal the inner workings of the watch. The movement is constructed of white gold, silicon, and titanium.
The five central hands are controlled by a mono-pusher chronograph which uses concentric scales instead of the normal sub-dials.
The case itself is made of 5N rose gold with double anti-reflective sapphire crystal covers.
