DeBethune Dream Watch No.1  6 Comments


The first time I saw this watch I was immediately was struck by how it looked like a minature space ship from another world. Like a movie prop from Speilberg's "Batteries Not Included" movie featuring minature flying saucers.
This is not to say that the watch is like a toy, far from it. On closer inspection, the quality of workmanship in finishing and design is still very much DeBethune. A company that is unafraid to innovate in terms of both mechanical function as well as aesthetics.
Apart form the immediate impact of the very high polished surfaces, is the 3 dimensional moon previously seen in DeBethune's Perpetual Calendars and the new funky solid balance wheel located at 6 o'clock above the moonphase. The winding crown is located at the top at 12 o'clock but the additional mechanical innovation is its moveable lower lugs that shifts according to the user's wrist shape. All these innovations makes this watch stand out from mainstream models released this year.
