Well. it's more or less that shape, as opposed to a traditional beam axle.

ISTR the watch people took exception to the naming at one point.

Its supposed to flex enough to allow some independent rear wheel movement. Its also partly a pair of trailing arms and a sort of anti-roll bar. If i remember the blurb right the buckets for the coil springs are welded on in such a way as to reduce toe in or out under hard cornering. Hard working little beam
