De Bethune DBM – The Reinvented Fob-Watch for your iPhone

De Bethune DBM – The Reinvented Fob-Watch for your iPhone

Unfortunately, the fashion of carrying a watch in each waistcoat fob pocket, or at least owning a pocket watch at all, quickly broke off as the first wrist watch caught attention. Now, the avant-garde watchmaker De Bethune introduces their attempt to reawake a once ubiquitous elaborate masculine jewelry with fitting a watch on the back of a smartphone. The DBM adds a touch of soul to the modern-day gentlemen’s electronical companions via a precious watch incorporated in the patinated feel of the chestnut brown full-grain alligator leather. Even though its use is questionable, the hand-guilloché dial with flame-blued steel hands definitely is an aesthetically enhancement while the used mechanical DB 1024 calibre with up to 6 days of power reserve provides the technical pillars for the serious collector.
