WWLI: De Bethune DBS

Generally speaking, it’s easy to tell roughly when a De Bethune watch was released because the watches are all numbered. The first watch they released was the DB1 in 2002. The next was the DB2, and so on they just kept incrementing numbers. There are exceptions to this where they’ve gone out of numeric order, but it’s a good rule of thumb. The other exceptions are for pieces like this watch, the DBS. The DBS was debuted by De Bethune in 2005 for the very first Only Watch auction, and it was one of their first watches that didn’t follow the numeric naming convention. That’s a sign that this is a special watch… and this is Why We Love It.
