Power DB22

    The Power utilizes newly developed, advanced technological solutions to measure time, including the titanium-platinum balance wheel, the patented De Bethune spiral with terminal plane curve, and the triple parachute bridge (a shock-absorber system with a titanium bridge that has allowed De Bethune to produce the lightest isochronal oscillating system in the world). The movement also contains a self-adjusting double barrel and a totally new and innovative titanium-platinum rotor assembled on ceramic micro balls. The watch is able to generate power for more than 80 hours of reserve in only 3 hours. The dial is made of titanium worked at very high speeds and chiseled to a thickness of 1/15 of a millimeter; the dial also features a micro light polish.
