Gael Monfils x De Bethune_01

 

French tennis star Gaël Monfils is the new brand ambassador for haute horlogerie brand De Bethune. As a young watch collector with a penchant for complicated mechanisms, the 27 year-old tennis pro is a natural fit for the niche manufacture. “I have around 30 watches, but De Bethune creations truly stand out from all the rest. I appreciate the technical nature and the innovations they have brought to the watchmaking world”, adds the long-time holder of the record for the most powerful forehand on the circuit (190 km/h).”

The three-year partnership launches with this year’s Wimbledon Championships where Gaël will be wearing a customised DB28 Black Matt model with a blued titanium ring (blue) reflecting the brand’s signature colour.
