United we are stronger in the fight against disease! In support of the biennial Only watch charity auction of unique timekeepers, two major brands, two independent watchmakers, two unique Maisons - de Bethune and Urwerk - have combined their creative energies to produce a watch capable of arousing curiosity and “touching” the senses.
From the outside, we notice, a case made to defy classical norms, which blends the genetic and design traits of De Bethune e Urwerk and, where inside, under the curved sapphire crystal, beats an amazing mechanical "universe" - the caliber URDB01 jointly developed for this very special auction. The crown at 12 o'clock, the spherical moon phase and the unique time display of Urwerk from the famous arched window that evokes and recalls the curvature of the sun.
Collaboration DE BETHUNE e URWERK is the story of four characters, Denis Flageollet e Pierre Jacques by De Bethune and by Felix Baumgartner e Martin Frey by Urwerk. A story of mutual respect and implicit trust. The meeting of two great independent brands united by a long friendship, to donate a truly original and highly desirable product to the charity event. A unique timepiece in support of the fight against muscular dystrophy by Duchenne. 1 + 1 = 3!
