In order to maintain its extreme level of excellence, De Bethune has a very low annual production of 150-200 watches per year. Since its 20 years if history, it has only produced slightly over 3,000 watches. In 2021, Watchbox acquired a majority stake in the De Bethune brand.
The De Bethune DB25 GMT Starry Varius boasts a “sphere hand” GMT indicator, while the lower dial displays De Bethune’s exquisite representation of the Milky Way, captured in a captivating starry sky design.
