Frontrunners: Time Will Tell

Boutique watchmaker De Bethune recently introduced the De Bethune DB 28 (www.debethune.ch), a watch that mixes the futuristic with the vintage. The $82,500 watch’s dial side displays the brand’s signature shield-shaped movement under blue pomme-style hands that recall Breguet designs from the 18th century. Far more modern is the DB 28’s solid silicon-and-platinum balance disk. A coiling hairspring set immediately above the disk provides the only visual indication that the watch is running.
