The revisited DB25 Starry Varius watch can be personalised with your choice of star constellation.
Revised case and lugs design, the DB25 Starry Varius is still quintessentially De Bethune watch. With its brilliant blue night sky and golden stars set in a classic frame.
The famous De Bethune Starry Varius is a watch made of titanium with a dial that shows the stars on a given night on a given date, which the buyer may specify.
Swiss high watchmaking Maison De Bethune once again displays its technical and aesthetic mastery by unveiling the 2020 DB25 Starry Varius, a poetic interpretation of the traditional DB25. A personalised constellation, revisited lugs and an original 42mm case compose with delightfully pure classic imparting fresh creative momentum while showcasing horological history.
De Bethune stands by Womanity 2020
2020 DB25 Starry Varius was offered to support The Womanity Foundation. By supporting The Womanity 2020, De Bethune was able to contribute to the many projects that the foundation carries out around the world. These initiatives bring to light values that are essential for keeping the promises of peace and human progress for a better world. Last week, the DB25 Starry Varius was auctioned at 70’000.- Swiss Francs For Womanity.
The proceeds from the auction of this watch were entirely donated to Womanity on the occasion of the grand gala celebrating the foundation’s 15 years of global action to empower women and girls.
“We look at our own growth with measure and reason, we work at it little by little, through the confidence our customers place in us and though the way we care for them, with the aim of designing and producing the most beautiful timepieces. Authenticity and respect are at the heart of our DNA. Creativity, freedom and entrepreneurship are essential. By supporting Womanity, De Bethune wants to do its part in underscoring the importance of respect for these values, which are essential for keeping the promise of peace and human progress towards a better world,” commented Pierre Jacques, CEO de De Bethune.
