Founded by two brothers in the Swiss village of Le Locle, Angelus won many prizes for their excellence in watchmaking. Although relatively unknown to the general public, Angelus' timing wristwatches represent a great value for the money as they are well-regarded quality watches selling for modest prices.
Today's offering showcases this elegant and refined vintage Angelus made for the U.S. market. Done in a Tuxedo style, it stands for what was prestigious, elegant, and refined. While not a large watch, it is a little bit larger than most similar watches of this style and has more diamonds.
The beautiful case has been previously tastefully aftermarket decorated with diamonds and customized to accomodate them.
Its full diamond case with sixty diamonds give it a a very sophisticated style. Inside the case is its original handwound Angelus mechanism capable of superior timekeeping.
The watch is in excellent condition, and the dial has been previously well-restored.
Our watchmaker has freshly cleaned and oiled the movement. For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a new Teju lizard strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year international warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
