The sky at night: De Bethune DB28 Skybridge Watch
The De Bethune DB28 Skybridge is an ethereal new addition to the DB28 series, and you just know that the PR people in the Swiss mountains have been working overtime when they say ‘an infinite expanse of the heavenly firmament stretches across its dreamlike face. Ancestral skills and the latest scientific breakthroughs meet and mingle under the impetus of David Zanetta and Denis Flageollet.’
While classically inspired in terms of its round shape, its 12 o’clock crown and its hunter-type back borrowed from pocket watches, the ultra-light 43mm mirror-polished titanium case of the DB28 features the same distinctive floating lugs as others in the DB28 series. The dial however is less complex, but nonetheless stunning looking, like something James Bond might wear to the casino.

I generally disdain watches that allude to 'Klingon Prostheses' . This watch rises above the fray. It reminds me of an endearing scene in the movie "Men In Black" that allows us to suspend disbelief and intimidate on the infinite quality of space. I wouldn't necessarily wear it to a casino, but I would walk through Doha or through some of Zaha Hadid's works to combine the wrist aesthetic with the unreal worlds .
