Well, Beta21 is the first Swiss quartz wristwatch and we have written a lot about this fantastic innovation:

See its story in these four parts:

Beta21 Part 1
Beta21 Part 2
Beta21 Part 3
Beta21 Part 4

And see our research results about the numbers made for each brand -- in total 6'000:

How Many Rolex Beta21?
How Many IWC Beta21?
How Many Patek Beta21?
How Many Omega Beta21?
How Many Bulova Beta21?
How Many Piaget Beta21?

These are the number the major participants were produced in between 1970 and 1972. Today this distribution looks completely different, given the fact many of the 2nd row brands were smelted, destroyed or simply got lost -- but thats another story.

And finally, see our inventory of Beta21 -- if curious or interested, contact us.

There is no reason to be afraid of owning one of the most important horological development in the 20th century, a Beta21. Read here why.
