Angelus is one of those brands that should ring a bell, at least if you are into vintage watches. Besides their own chronographs and other complications, Angelus was also the supplier of movements to lớn brands lượt thích Panerai baông chồng in the days. With an impressive sầu array of movements và world-firsts in watchmaking, the brvà couldn’t survive the 1970s due khổng lồ the nifty quartz pieces that were made by other brands. There was no need any more for mechanical watches that couldn’t perform with the same accuracy as those battery-operated watches.quý khách hàng vẫn xem: Rio ferdin& u10

Have a look at Chrono24 or eBay and you will find some impressive sầu looking vintage Angelus chronographs (Chronodato lớn for example). It is really a shame that a br& like Angelus did not survive sầu the 1970s if you look at all of those beautiful watches & movements they made prior to that. Manufacture La Joux-Perret must have thought the same thing and decided lớn revive sầu this brvà that was originally found in Le Locle, Switzerland.

After more than 30 years, the new Angelus manufacture is located in La Chaux-de-Fonds, near Le Locle. The first timepiece they are introducing (today) is something that I would have never expected as a ‘first’ from the revived Angelus. The Angelus U10 Tourbillon Lumière is a high-end watch, featuring a tourbillon and a dead-beat second hvà complication.

Angelus U10 Tourbillon Lumière

With the Angelus U10 Tourbillon Lumière, the br& is baông chồng on the horological maps with a bang! The flying tourbillon is visible in the beautiful duplex case. Four crystals surround the tourbillon, so it can be enjoyed from almost every angle. One of the sapphire crystals is wrapped 90 degrees over the kết thúc of the case. The inside of the case has this matte blaông chồng finish so it absorbs the light. As you can see, the movement is deconstructed (as Angelus writes in their press release), which means the flying tourbillon is configured apart from the rest of the movement.

According khổng lồ Se?bastien Chaulmontet (who we also know from the other La Joux-Perret brvà Arnold & Son), the dead beat seconds is “our little wink at – và snub to – history.

“. The case of the Angelus U10 Tourbillon Lumière is shaped after the multi-display travel clocks Angelus was renowned for between the 1930s to lớn the ‘60s. You could say that both aesthetics và mechanics are very well thought-through by Angelus for their first re-launch mã sản phẩm.

As you can see on the image below, the Angelus U10 Tourbillon Lumière also has a linear power reserve sầu indicator in its case bvà placed under the dial. The sapphire box that displays the flying tourbillon can be seen from multiple angles on the right. The case is made of a BO-988 specific annealed stainless steel, which is of higher quality than the more common 316L type steel (fewer impurities) as it is less liable to corode. The fine grain size also allowed Angelus lớn use a higher standard regarding polishing và finish.

I wonder whether this timepiece sets the new standard for Angelus watches & that it will become a new competitor for some of the independent brands out there (MB&F và Hautlence come to lớn mind) or that other pieces will be less eccentric.
