Showing at WatchTime New York 2019: De Bethune DB28GS Grand Bleu

I wouldn’t be lying if I said I thought De Bethune was one of the most consistently interesting brands in independent watchmaking these days. Ever since Pierre Jacques returned to his role as CEO in October of 2017, the brand hasn’t come close to a misfire. While the pinnacle achievement for De Bethune during this...

Reservoir Watches Introduces its First Dive Watch with the Hydrosphere Collection

Although Reservoir Watches has been around since 2015, my first experience with the brand was at Baselworld 2018 where I was struck by the brand’s all-or-nothing approach to watchmaking. Every single timepiece produced by Reservoir is focused on a dueling complication setup for the time display. The hours are indicated via a digital aperture in the...

Baselworld 2019:

WatchTime’s Official Editors’ Round Table for Baselworld

Baselworld 2019 will most likely go down as the show’s deciding year: On one hand, Baselworld had to deal with yet another significantly lower number of exhibitors (and visitors); on the other hand, the show’s new management also had to make sure the outlook for 2020 would be convincing enough to bring back large portions...
