The De Bethune that won me over.

It’s certainly not a piece most people think of when they think of De Bethune, but it’s a piece I love so much. The comfort is really unparalleled, and I love the space age design. It even reminds me a bit of Vianney in a way, but most importantly, it alw...

As such, I wanted mine to truly be in that ethos. I also wanted a piece that had the characteristic floating lugs, so my choice was easy at that time. Since then, my perspective on the pieces has matured more, and while I still think of them as pieces wit...

You are very kind. Though, I have to say, I can’t ever seem to get a picture that adequately captures the depth it possesses. Will keep trying!

A brilliant piece

A different kind of beauty perhaps, but I agree.

Great point!

Very nice watch

I put it on this past summer.

It felt perfect for the season, but I liked it so much that I’ve kept it on.

You make a point that immediately resonates with me.

I’ve been fortunate enough to have had many DBs on my wrist, through visiting ADs (not owning), in the last 8 or 10 years. And not until you said just now that you wanted yours to really embrace and own the sporty vibe did I realize what my hesitation was...

Especially knowing that these impressions came from someone that spent a good deal of time trying them on and contemplating them. Thank you for sharing this experience and also for your encouragement.
