Beta21 Rolex -- pre-Oysterquartz

Sunday, May 10, 2020

The impressive size, the heavy weight, the sweeping second and the humming sound of this pioneer quartz movement (Beta21) are giving this piece made by Rolex in the early 70s its place in horological books. Another aspect why it is a special watch and also a special Rolex: It was made in a limited edition of 1'000 pieces -- engraved on the case back. The second only limited edition ever done by Rolex.

Here we connected the Baumgartner SA made case to a custom made strap. Beautiful and not only rare but unique.
