The DB28xs Starry Seas is a watch that will go down in the history of De Bethune, as it is a further step in the initiation story that Denis Flageollet, Master Watchmaker and Founder of the Manufacture De Bethune has been telling for the past 20 years. 

In addition to its aesthetically smaller diameter than previous models (39mm) and its emblematic naturally blue colour, De Bethune has invented a watch featuring the world's first random guilloché.  

Denis Flageollet, seeking a sense of tranquillity, was inspired by the Japanese concept of Wabi-Sabi, three principles of which emanate naturally from the DB28xs Starry Seas. With its random guilloché and blued titanium wave reflecting a starry sky, this model offers us the beauty of imperfect things. With its small size and the sobriety of its silver-toned chapter-ring and movement, the timepiece is animated by the beauty of modest and simple things. The result is a different, singular watch embodying the third definition of Wabi-Sabi: the beauty of atypical things. 

The principle has remained the same for more than 20 years: creating timepieces respecting watchmaking traditions while incorporating the mechanical, technical and aesthetic innovations of our time. Tradition is therefore observed from an innovative standpoint and works to make the contemporary mechanical watch a wristworn embodiment of time measurement.
