Chaulmontet did have an excuse about why his brand new Angelus B&b Rome Replica Orologiwas so different than what people were expecting. ” I don’t wish to produce something that, technically, might have been made 80 decades ago — I wanted the best technology we have at this time. That meant working with large curved sapphire, a 3D motion and curved motion plates. We wanted to re-launch Angelus as a contemporary, innovative, modern watchmaker”. I have to respect Msr. Chaulmontet along with his willingness to make something different.It could have been all too easy to recreate Angelus as yet another heritage brand releasing old layouts with ETA movements. Anything you think of the new direction that Angelus has taken, you must concede that they’re original. They might not be cheap, but they may not be chronographs however they are certainly horological works of the highest order.When you think Angelus, you might have in mind a chronograph with a calendar disadvantage, a watch that collectors know as the Chronodato. Here, at Monochrome-Watches we shared this notion and when we noticed that Angelus was going to be re-launched, we anticipated a sort of modern interpretation of these classic watches. But then came the Angelus U10 Tourbillon Lumiere — and my friends, how modern it is! In fact, it took us some time to understand how this view has been linked to the title Angelus. Following a talk with the designer and some time with the watch, here are our thoughts.

  • The Stolzes had studied under Henri Sandoz of the Tavannes Watch Company, and started their own company at a time once the watch company was booming. In the coming decades that they established Angelus as a respected maker of the two watches and watch movements. By the 1930s, its chronographs had become a major part of the company, and could eventually become the brand’s most renowned creations. Angelus 1935 Chronograph 560The brand also became known for its portable clocks and table clocks with eight-day power reserves and a slew of purposes, like alarms, barometer and thermometer. But the watch that could make everything possible for Angelus was that the Chronodato. In 1942, the company introduced the initial widely-produced chronograph wristwatch with calendar function. Employing Angelus’s caliber SF250, the Chrono-Datoluxe again had a bicompax chronograph screen, to which it included a moon-phase in 6 o’clock. However, the watch’s real meaning was that it was the very first serially produced watch with an electronic date display. Two numeral disks rotated underneath the window between 11 and 12 o’clock, directly beside a daytime display.

  • By the end of the 1960s the Swiss watch industry was in decline, which process was seriously accelerated by the arrival of quartz watches. Production was closed down from the 1970s; Angelus became called a darling of vintage-watch collectors.It was not until 2011 it found new owners. And not just anybody: Manufacture La Joux-Perret. The highly regarded movement maker, based in La Chaux-de-Fonds, makes original calibers for a number of clients. It also has its own brand, Arnold & Son, which creates manufacture moves in the exact same centre. So Angelus appears to be in very great hands.The new Angelus is run from the same La Chaux-de-Fonds website as La Joux-Perret and Arnold & Son. Like those companies, it is also directed by CEO Frédéric Wenger and technical director Sébastien Chaulmontet.But since La Joux-Perret already has a effective small new in the shape of Arnold & Son — and one that has produced a plethora of innovative and different watches predicated on its golden-age watchmaking heritage — what’s left for Angelus to do in this new incarnation. The response: something completely different.The name Angelus may not mean a great deal to you if you’re brand new to watches. Yet to those entrenched in this fire, Angelus was one of the greatest manufacturers of chronograph movements. So what happened? Why were Angelus dropped to time? Can they rise again?Angelus began when two brothers, Albert and Gustav Stolz, setup shop in the watchmaking town of Le Locle, Switzerland in 1892. Albert and Gustav began making watches named their brand after the angelus dedication of the Catholic faith.

  • The Stolzes had studied under Henri Sandoz of their Tavannes Watch Company, and started their own company at a time once the watch business was flourishing. From the coming decades they found Angelus as a respected manufacturer of the two watches and watch movements. By the 1930s, its chronographs had become a major portion of the business, and would eventually become the newest most renowned creations. Angelus 1935 Chronograph 560The brand also became known for its mobile clocks and table clocks with eight-day power reserves and a slew of functions, like alarmsclock, barometer and thermometer. But the opinion that could make everything possible for Angelus was the Chronodato. In 1942, the business introduced the initial widely-produced chronograph wristwatch with calendar function. Using Angelus’s grade SF250, the Chrono-Datoluxe again had a bicompax chronograph screen, where it added that a moon-phase in 6 o’clock. However, the watch’s real meaning was that it had been the first serially produced watch using an electronic date display.

  • Eliminate the emblem and the brand from the dial and you could easily believe the U10 Tourbillon Lumiere is a MB&F, a Hautlence or a HYT. This view is (at first sight) pure avant-garde, modernism and feels architectural, transparent and ambitious. It’s difficult to believe that this watch is stamped El Angelus Pdf Replica Orologi– and we could tell you, some long-time vintage collectors even cried out heresy or even scandal. However, if it’s quite handy and easy to re-launch a new with vintage-inspired timepieces (and to talk for hours about legacy, enthusiasm and background… with in fact nothing else than simply marketing verbiage and preaching), this Angelus is another story. The purpose here was to not directly recall the past but to imagine watches slightly inspired by the legacy of the brand, in a modern interpretation, like if Angelus had consistently been here.The titles behind the re-birth of Angelus are recognizable. The idea is born in Sebastien Chaulmontet’s mind — for the narrative, he is head of movement development and part of the design team of Arnold & Son and La Joux-Perret. Chaulmontet is also known at the vintage watches community to be a fantastic chronograph collector and especially of classic Angelus watches. Because of that, people in the need of information frequently reached directly to him. However a few years back, someone gave him a phone with an offer to buy the rights to the entire Angelus brand — an offer that he accepted. He bought the brand with La Joux-Perret (which currently owns the manufacturer) and he began to consider the best way to recreate Angelus watches. The first watch, the Angelus U10 Tourbillon Lumiere, was born with 2 objectives: showing the world the brand is back on its own feet and providing some tips for the future collections. The U10 isn’t necessarily representative of this name Angelus, neither out of the watches which could be released afterwards. It’s similar to just like throwing a large stone into a pond to create a shock wave (such as the info, Angelus is currently teasing us with parts of their upcoming watch in their Instagram accounts).

  • It had been the very first chronograph which Panerai ever made but the Allied invasion of Italy in 1943 put a stop to the creation. Only 2 or 3 prototypes were made, which makes it among the most desirable Panerais ever made. Brands experimented with new complications and case layouts and dip watches became a thing. Despite being known for chronograph versions, Angelus made two watches that were unlike anything they’ve made before; the Datalarm and also the Tinkler.The Datalarm, published in 1956, was the first wristwatch with both an alert and date function. The watch used an Adolph Schild alarm module, used by manufacturers such as Tudor and Omega for their alert watches, with a date module mounted on top. In the event the Chronodato was the crown jewel of Angelus afterward the Tinkler was supposed to become a grand palace to flaunt the technical accomplishments of Angelus. Yet the great King Angelus was too ambitious. The Tinkler was complex to make than they first believed so production ran over funding despite only 100 being made. When it launched it was a commercial flop. Calling one of the most innovative wristwatches of the era the Tinkler likely wasn’t the best thought.
