At Baselworld this year exclusive luxury watchmaker De Bethune thrilled fans with the unveiling of their new DB28 Black Collection. As the name suggests the collection features all-black versions of their iconic DB28 timepieces, including the 2011 “Aiguille d’Or” winning DB28, which is presented in a beautiful matte black case, as well as the superb DB28T, which is offered in your choice of black and gold or all-black. As you can see in the pictures we got hands on with the latter piece and our lives have not really been the same since.

Welcome to Part.2 of our special insight on the origins of some the world’s most amazing watches. If you missed Part.1 be sure to check it out here. Today we present to you the original sketches of two exceptional pieces; the DualTow by Christophe Claret and the Jules Audemars by Audemars Piguet. Looking at these images (the first set especially) it really is hard to believe just how superb the final results are!
However, as they say, the creative process isn’t always pretty but it’s the results that count.
Christophe Claret – The DualTow
Audemars Piguet – Jules Audemars
In keeping with The Watch Lounge’s tradition of “Wow Watch Wednesday” the sketches to be published tomorrow in Part.3 of this multi-part series will be something a little out of the ordinary which we think you’re going to enjoy!
