    Help! Info needed on Betina

    I really need any info on this watch. I can't find any info on the web. I also need a crystal for it. A model number or something would be great. I think it is the same crystal as the elgin and gruen of the same style.

    Thanks in advance,

    Thanks for posting. I'll leave this one for the chronograph experts, as I know nothing about Betina. Sorry.

    It obviously has a Calibre 11, the world's second automatic chronograph movement, developed and made by the Breitling/Heuer-Leonidas (now TAG Heuer)/Hamilton-Buren/ Dubois Depraz consortium. It has a microrotor movement with a backside chronograph module. Compare pictures and information at:


    The Cal. 11 was narrowly pipped to the post in the race for the world's first automatic chronograph movement by the famous Zenith Cal. 3019 PHC "El Primero". I don't know what Betina had to do with the consortium, though - if anything. They needn't have - I have seen some other non-consortium watches with that movement too.....

    You might try contacting this company. They can make a crystal for it if a replacement can't be purchased.
