Classic by inspiration with its round, ultra-thin shape, its crown at 12 o'clock and a hunter case back borrowed from 19th century pocket watches, the DB28XP Starry Sky comes in an ultra-lightweight, mirror-polished titanium. Its redesigned floating lugs only emphasis the modern, even futuristic character. As a quest to represent the most beautiful sky, the DB28XP Starry Sky offers a gaze into the infinite that has become a recurring theme throughout the Maison's creations.

The creation of a blue Microlight firmament was inspired by the DB28 Skybridge which features a curved sky. The dial’s surface of peaks and valleys refracts light in yet more dimensions, offering a unique spectacle. Free and unconstrained, the mastery of blued titanium translates into a multitude of patterns  creating a mesmerizing optical effect.

The starry scene on the dial is reflected by a multitude of small white gold pins driven through one by one, with great care and accuracy, based on the actual magic of the stars on an actual night. Glittering sparkles give the night-time heavens an endless depth, the customer selects the date and hour and location, and De Bethune draws the sky map of on the dial.

The DB28XP Starry Sky features the hour circle in silver, the minutes in Arabic numerals, the discreet De Bethune signature at 12 o'clock, and rose gold hands designed especially for this edition.

The DB28XP Starry Sky encapsulates our philosophy of respecting the culture and tradition of watchmaking and combining innovation. It’s the only certified preowned available directly from the manufacture, refurbished tested and completed with a new Preowned certificate, strap and original De Bethune watch box.
