The Finest De Bethune Watches on the Market Today

The De Bethune Swiss watch manufacturer has recently sold a majority stake in the company to an investment consortium. This has spurred rumors about the quality of the brand, but we’re assured by Pierre Jacques, the former CEO of the brand, along with Giovanni Perin, a private equity investor that the pursuit of horological innovation will continue on its normal trajectory, which is the achievement of excellence in each example that is produced. The Co-founder of the company, Denis Flageollet will retain a large stake in the company as co-founder David Zanetta steps down and cedes his shares. At the age of 70, Zanetta is leaving after making amazing contributions to the company.
