    How many IWC Beta 21 Ref. 3070 watches were produced?

    Hello fellow watch enthusiasts,

    I am beyond excited to share with you a true treasure from a collection - an
    exquisite IWC Beta 21 Ref. 3070.

    The IWC Beta 21 Ref. 3070 is a rare and highly sought-after model. While the
    exact number of these watches produced remains a mystery, it is widely known
    that they are quite scarce.

    This exceptional timepiece is powered by the revolutionary Beta 21 movement,
    which marked a significant milestone in the history of quartz watches. It
    features a distinctive design with a large, bold case that perfectly embodies
    the essence of the 1970s watchmaking era. The craftsmanship, attention to
    detail, and overall elegance of this watch truly set it apart from the rest.

    Having the opportunity to own and showcase such a rare and historically
    significant timepiece is an absolute privilege. I am thrilled to share my
    passion for horology with this amazing community and hope you enjoy this
    glimpse into my collection as much as I do.

    Please feel free to share your thoughts, comments, and any additional
    information you might have about the IWC Beta 21 Ref. 3070.

    Warm regards, Jeremy

    Welcome to the forum Jeremy, what a great find.

    Indeed these are rare, they were very expensive at that time, so not many
    were sold.

    And new in box, indeed something to treasure.

    What a beautiful piece of hertiage.

    Looking at the proportions i think 'exquisite' is a touch optimistic...with an eye on smudging such girth not even the da vinci could claim such.

    Very cool piece, Jeremy, and it still looks fantastic today! I love the caseback design with the polished finish against the brushed sides of the middle case - it helps to hide the girth.

    The Beta 21 movement was used by many brands in it's day. The total production was 6.000. IWC had 600 Beta 21 movements it total. For all it's watches.

    Oh gosh!

    What a beauty and what a piece of history!

    As Tonny and others stated already, very rare and in perfect condition. With original box and package. Fantastic and congrats.

    Great find and welcome to the Forum. Keep these jewels coming!

    Btw.: Is it steel or white gold?

    I would like to know if there is a difference between the ref. 3070 and 3203.
