De Bethune: The Art of Watchmaking Arthur Touchot Assouline, 2023
Now celebrating its twentieth anniversary, De Bethune is not only widely recognized, but indeed considered emblematic of the renaissance of independent watchmaking in the twenty-first century. With a text by Arthur Touchot, a foreword by Wei Koh, founder of Revolution magazine and Grail Watch, as well as special contributions from De Bethune CEO Pierre Jacques and a cross section of watch industry notables and passionate collectors; Jean Arnault , Aurel Bacs, Swizz Beatz, Jean-Claude Biver, Ben Clymer, Victoria Gomelsky, Danny Govberg, Tim Mosso, Luc Pettavino, Michèle Rothen, Mohammed Seddiqi, Michael Strahan, Michael Tay, Kari Voutilainen and Suzanne Wong, De Bethune: The Art of Watchmaking invites readers to experience every single facet of this cult atelier, from founding to the future, manufacture to movements. When asked what watch collectors in the next century will take from this golden age of timekeeping, you can say with certainty that they will recognize Denis Flageollet as one of the greatest horological minds of all time. To own a De Bethune watch is to have a stewardship of an object with enduring totemic and historical significance.
