De Bethune watch

De Betune is an independant watchmaker in Switzerland. They produce very exclusive watches 1). One of their experimental watches is the Dreamwatch 5:

“A true wrist sculpture, the Dream Watch 5 is a continuation of the Maison’s research into shapes, materials and colours. The mechanics fade into the background so as to ensure an even more beautiful expression design. The display of the hour, minute and moon phase functions almost vanishes. As the creations progress, design is progressively refined in favour of a curved deltoid motif, a major element in the aesthetic of the collection and more generally of De Bethune watches” 2).

In August 2019 François Schuiten published some images of what looks like a golden version of the Dreamwatch 5 with line artwork from Machines à dessiner.
