DB28 Kind Of Blue Tourbillon

In 2017, De Bethune decided to create an extraordinary dial with a fragment that fell from space over 4,000 years ago and landed in Argentina. Cut into a fine sliver to form the dial and manually flame-blued, this piece of meteorite was then polished and drilled to form a multitude of tiny holes inlaid with white gold spheres depicting the stars of the galaxy. The case of the DB28 Kind of Blue Meteorite is entirely made of blued titanium, framing the De Bethune tourbillon appearing at 6 o’clock, the lightest and fastest in the world.
