A celebration of 20 years with De Bethune

Nov 22, 2022,13:24 PM

De Bethune and local retailer The Hourglass held an intimate dinner last night with friends, celebrating a wholesome 20 years of De Bethune. Joining the party was Pierre Jacques and Jorg Hysek Jr from DB, representatives from The Hourglass, as well as many familiar faces of friends. I'm not a great story teller, so I'll let the pictures speak for me.

As usual, the party normally starts from my side of the table, and from there... the watch pile starts to grow.

I guess at this point, food is secondary but the watches are in focus  Some unique watches made an appearance, including the DB Kind of Two Jumping GMT, Dream Watch 5 as well as the Sensoriel Chronometry Project (and a quick break to grab some grub).

Let's have a look again at some of the DB28s. Can you name them all? There is one piece unique here, if you are able to spot it!

Consolation prize: the other watches... still titanium, and both on colourful rubber straps!

Overall, it was a fantastic night out with De Bethune and The Hourglass, with good food, great watches and fantastic company. I hope you enjoyed the photos.

The watches are incredible. Must be fun to see so many DB in one place.

Good try!

But no DB29 last night. Look for the pic of the two Kind of Blues (one moonphase, the other tourbillon). Below the two Blues, you get Steel Wheels with the blue inner ring. Right after that is also Steel Wheels, but with a yellow ring, which is a one-off!... 

Whoa..! I feel like the proverbial kid in the candy store!!
