Rectangular Beta21

Tuesday, July 13, 2021

Three brands, three different watches with some similarities: the technology inside is the pioneering first quartz movement, Beta21 and the case is rectangular shaped to wrap the similar dimensioned movement.

To be precise, it is the successor Beta22 in Omega and Patek and just the 1970 / 1971 debuting Piaget holds a true Beta21. The Omega was presented to the public in 1973 as was the Patek Ellipse and obviously both brands needed some inspiration from the brave company headquartered in La-Cote-Aux-Fees and led by Yves Piaget.
