De Bethune has secured space with Stephen Silver Fine Jewelry, one of Silicon Valley’s most prestigious retailers.
The brand joins a portfolio of highly exclusive Swiss watchmakers, many of which make tiny quantities of exquisite timepieces by hand.
Stephen Silver will kick off its partnership with the launch of De Bethune DB 25 Starry Varius, which will be displayed at its Menlo Park boutique in the Rosewood Sand Hill Resort.
De Bethune is known for taking inspiration from the night sky, and the DB Starry Varius is another fine example.
It uses white gold pins to represent the stars, hand-fitted into the blued and polished titanium dial surface. The Milky Way pattern has been achieved using laser beam micro milling and gilding.
“We have always thought the forward-looking mechanical design and aesthetics of De Bethune to be a perfect fit for Silicon Valley’s culture,” says Pierre Jacques, CEO of De Bethune. “Stephen Silver is the most important destination for high horology in the area and a perfect place to launch the DB 25 Starry Varius, our most anticipated timepiece in several years.”
Jared Silver, president of Stephen Silver Fine Jewelry, adds: “In this age of individuality, collectors looking for pieces that speak to them with a unique story. De Bethune’s story is about innovation, independence, and creativity. These are the cardinal virtues of Silicon Valley, and values which also define the types of brands we curate and promote. We look forward to debuting the DB 25 Starry Varius and other De Bethune timepieces to our collectors and are excited to partner with one of the most exciting independent Swiss watch brands on the market today.”
