Those lugs look great in any metal, but a steel case means the watch can be enjoyed on casual days too. Now the real question is, how does it stack up against the salmon dial Montblanc Heritage Pulsographe? Without examining both in the metal, I can’t say definitively which I prefer. I think the Vac
I’m not an owner, but I think many of De Bethune’s watches are beautiful and modern. Some are not to my taste, but I think they’ve hit their stride with the articulating lugs.
