De Bethune – DB16 Régulateur Tourbillon – clean and classical

De Bethune’s DB 16 Tourbillon Regulator integrates a perpetual calendar with a three-dimensional moon-phase complication with a retrograde setting scale, as well as deadbeat seconds.

There is also a lightweight silicon and titanium tourbillon weighing a mere 18 grams, and features a 30-second indicator around it. The dial looks clean where the moon-phase complication takes the centre-stage at 12 o’clock, while the date indicator balances out at 6 o’clock.

A mixture of subtle design features such as the blued hands and perpetual calendar windows at 3 and 9 o’clock makes the dial elegantly classic.

There’s Roman numerals for the hour markers and train track minutes indicators with Arabic numerals every five minutes. The 43mm pink gold case with the De Bethune cone-shaped lugs completes the package. All this can be yours for USD 380,000.
