On offer for sale is an extremely rare and highly collectible, the latest generation, De Bethune Grand Sports John Player Special (JPS), a nod to the daring age of Formula 1 in the 1970s from the brand, but also, and above all to that key period of mechanical and aerodynamic research, Model reference DB28GSV2JPS.


Released in 2022, the present DB28GSJPS with its floating lugs, delta-shaped bridges, and exposed balance wheel with highlights in flame heated titanium, features all the signature elements that one would expect from the De Bethune.

- Cased at 44mm in diameter, using black zirconium, hardened DLC coated stainelss steel caseback and the "floating" lugs, with again those yellowed hues from heated titanium, makes it an extremely beautiful and desirable configuration. 

- Conceived as a sport watch, De Bethune came up with an astute on-demand lighting system from inside the watch. Fully mechanical, the lighting system is made alive thanks to a dynamo activated by the yellow heated titanium pusher at 6 o’clock. With no battery, the pusher activates a small gear train with a tiny dynamo driven by a twin barrel and lights up the watch on demand.

The watch is offered in in Like-New condition and is offered as full set with all boxes and papers dated 2022, and both the rubber strap with deployant clasp, and fabric black strap with a De Bethune stamped yellow heated titnaium buckle.
