The DB27 Titan Hawk draws its inspiration from the design and technology of its predecessors while adding an innovative touch. Slim lines, a green microlight dial, sandblasted steel minute hands with hand-polished steel tips, a microlight case middle, and brushed lugs and open back.
A watch that stands out not only for its sleek design but also for its entirely manufactured movement. Focusing on the essentials, the DB27 Titan Hawk is equipped with the latest AUTOV2 caliber, hour, minute, second, which features a single barrel providing 60 hours of power reserve. The last titanium balance with white gold inserts remains visible on the back of the watch.Thanks to the technique still developed in-house, the movement is equipped with an optimised oscillating weight made of titanium and tungsten alloy allowing it to power itself.
If the inspiration of the original DB27 Titan Hawk model is very quickly perceived, each detail is rethought and reworked to find the elegance and readability of an object above all functional. Juxtaposing Roman numerals and Arabic numerals, the reading of the time is given around rings located at the periphery of the dial. The time display on the green dial is punctuated by sandblasted steel hands with hand-polished white tips.
Machined into a 43mm case in grade 5 titanium, accompanied by a khaki green canvas strap, we find all the De Bethune codes in this model: the patented mobile lugs, the crown at 12 o’clock, a microlight decoration on the middle and the green microlight dial. Sporty and modernist at the same time, this timepiece reflects the avant-gardism of the Manufacture as well as its artisanal tradition.
De Bethune DB27 Titan Hawk retails for S$59,000 and is limited to 10 pieces. For more information visit thehourglass.com.
