As a tribute to Steve Jobs, De Bethune has created a 12-piece limited edition “spaceship-inspired” iPhone shield in polished and bead-blasted titanium. The Dream Watch IV dial is hand-polished blued titanium with gold and diamond stars. The raised, arrow-shaped “spine” draws the eye to the silvered hour and minute disks.
The Dream Watch IV follows De Bethune’s launch of the DBM, a crocodile cell phone case fitted with a traditional two-hand timepiece, referred to by De Bethune as “a pocketwatch for the 21st century.”
Of the new Dream Watch IV, De Bethune says it both protects the owner’s iPhone, and shields the owner from any “potentially damaging waves” emanating from the device. Dream Watch IV uses De Bethune’s DB2105S caliber with twin barrels and a silicon/platinum annular balance, both of which are patented by De Bethune.
The Dream Watch IV will be officially unveiled at the De Bethune exhibition to be held in the Grand Lac salon of the Hotel des Berges in Geneva from January 15-20, 2012, during the SIHH.
