  • Catalogue Essay

    Independent watchmaker De Bethune is renowned for its daring aesthetics combined with high-end traditional watchmaking techniques. The present piece perfectly exemplifies this vocation: the time is indicated in digital fashion, with the minutes displayed on a disc and a window for the jump hours. The calendar follow suit, adopting a linear display at 12.

    The final result is a striking timepiece, the simplicity of its dial betraying the complexity of the movement. In a final “touch of class”, the moon phases aperture is displayed on the back of the watch through a 3-dimensional spherical indicator, an innovation introduced by the brand.
