Transcending horology through artistry in order to leave room for the emotional force and the beauty of the work such is the message delivered by Denis Flageollet. Understanding historical principles and the works of the Great Masters serves to build contemporary creations and to establish aesthetic codes aimed at perpetuating the timeless nature of watchmaking. Tomorrow's watchmaking is the object of daily study and thought for Denis Flageollet, who interpret it through all the entire range of horological creations of De Bethune.
The Dream Watch collection is at once the most extreme and the most accomplished embodiment of this creative folly. It encapsulates an ongoing work of research on shapes, materials and colours. In step with successive creations, the design has been pared down to a cambered delta-shaped motif representating the major element of the collection's aesthetic and more generally that of De Bethune watches. With the Dream Watch, De Bethune creates a fascinating work that is placing like a landmark on the frontier between art and watchmaking.
De Bethune is an independent Swiss watch manufacturer located at L’Auberson, Switzerland. It has developed no fewer than 28 calibres, presented some 30 world premieres and registered a large number of patents as well as producing 150 one-off pieces.
