De Bethune presents the "Sensoriel Chronometry Project"
By SENATUS Editor | 3 November 2022

Movements, positions, shocks, as well as also ambient temperature, hygrometry, atmospheric pressure... De Bethune is going to offer its customers a chance when purchasing their timepiece to first wear a test watch equipped with a multitude of sensors that will be able to record the wearer's environment and specific behaviour.

Two weeks of wearing the test watch will be enough to harvest all the necessary data enabling the De Bethune Chronometry Workshop in Switzerland to analyse the type of 'wear' and thus adjust the timepiece specifically for its owner.

To achieve this, De Bethune has built a robot arm inside its Manufacture in L'Auberson. Installed in an atmospheric chamber and using state-of-the-art technology, this device will receive all the data collected by the test watch's sensors and thus be able to accurately recreate the wearer's movements in their specific environment.

By thus reproducing the future environment of the timepiece, De Bethune will be able to carry out its customized chronometric (precision timekeeping) adjustment before delivering the watch to its new owner.
