With its historical references and contemporary construction, the Chronodate mixes different eras. The collection is a fusion between the historical Angelus brand – and its contribution to Swiss watchmaking heritage – and Angelus today: contemporary, technical and ultra-dynamic.

In addition to this historical tribute, Angelus has maintained its modern standards and comfort with a multi-material and multi-structure case. The calibre is housed in a carbon composite container, which is itself surrounded by a titanium case middle. This modular superstructure was developed to play with multiple materials. Their chamfered profiles, alternating right angles and curves, and the energy that emanates from them set the Chronodate’s sporty tone.

A chronograph was chosen to recall Angelus’s roots, since the brand was a first-rate manufacturer of these pieces from the 1930s onwards. The watches were small in diameter to cater to the tastes of the time. These modest dimensions made the counters appear particularly large and visible, so Angelus has naturally now chosen to give the Chronodate imposing counters that offer optimal readability. The counters are set on a subtle shade of “fern” green, punctuated with large applied Arabic numerals with Super-LumiNova.

Inside Chronodate is Angelus’s chronograph movement, the A-500 calibre. Its format displays the small seconds at 9 o’clock and the 30-minute chronograph counter at 3 o’clock. A hand-based date display circles around the edge of the dial to pay homage to the first Angelus Chronodate in 1942. Oscillating at a frequency of 4 Hz, the A-500 calibre incorporates a column wheel and a horizontal coupling clutch to keep a slim profile. It operates via a self-winding system with an oscillating weight shaped like a capital letter “A” above a star – Angelus’ emblem depicting a bell and its clapper. A reference to the early days of Angelus right at the heart of the mechanism.
