If there were a reward for Modernist 20th Century watch design, the Patek Phillippe Beta 21 3587 would surely win an award. This watch is the result of the Swiss watchmaker's efforts to keep up with quartz movement innovation in the 1970s. Patek Philippe went the extra mile to create something futuristic and elegant. The television dial and the German "swiss cheese" band in brushed 18k gold complimented the new technology. However, the Swiss soon realized that the demand for old-fashioned time keeping hadn't gone away and quartz movements were not where they wanted to focus their watch making efforts. This wristwatch has become a rare collectible throw back and a fashionable statement piece for today.
