The Swiss watchmaker has partnered with Visa to launch this second wave, which is therefore limited to a single financial company. Nick Hayek, Swatch boss has already had occasion to regret the reluctance of banks in his country towards new contactless payment technologies. The name of watch Bellamy was inspired by the American novelist Edward Bellamy who imagined debit card like payment system in his novel Looking Backward foretells written in 1888.
