ANGELUS WATCHES – Models with Technical Specifications, Price, Brand Details, History, News and Archives

Angelus x Massena LAB Medical Chronograph Limited Edition

By launching the Angelus x Massena LAB Medical Chronograph from the new La Fabrique collection, the iconic Swiss watch brand revives its legacy in manufacturing doctor’s watches.

Created in collaboration with Massena LAB, the Chronographe Médical is limited to 99 pieces. Endowed with dual pulsometer and asthmometer scales, it is a true tool watch for medical professionals. This model also marks the beginning of a new Angelus collection named La Fabrique created specifically for tribute editions.

In the 1960s, Angelus launched a wrist-worn hand-wound chronograph for doctors and medical professionals. Its unique style dial featured a dual scale for a pulsometer to measure the patient’s pulse and an asthmometer to record the respiratory rate. This doctor’s watch has been brought up to date by Angelus to appeal to modern tastes.


The Chronographe Médical x Massena LAB houses the Angelus manual winding A5000 movement with integrated mono-pusher chronograph.

It has a small seconds dial at 9 o’clock. The chronograph seconds hand placed on the centre can be used for calculating heart rate or respiratory rate in reference with the respective scales. Equipped with a single mushroom-shaped pusher at 2 o’clock and operating at a rate of 3 Hz, the Angelus A5000 chronograph calibre incorporates a column wheel and a horizontal clutch.

The case is made from 316L steel. Lastly, the case diameter has been increased to 39mm to make the pulsometer scale more legible.


The pulsometer function indicates a patient’s heart rate without the need for calculations. On the Angelus Chronographe Médical, the pulsometer scale between 1 and 3 o’clock is based on 10 beats. As soon as the chronograph is started, simply count 10 beats, then stop the mechanism. When compared against the pulsometer scale, the chronograph hand will then indicate the number of beats per minute.


The asthmometer displays the respiratory rate per minute. The Chronographe Médical works on the basis of five breaths. After starting the chronograph, count five breaths before pressing the pusher again. The chronograph hand will indicate the number of breaths per minute on the inner scale graduated from 40 to 10.

Dual Pulsometer and Asthmometer Scale

The pulsometer scale of this watch has a very specific colour code: green, black, or red, corresponding to the severity of the reading obtained during the examination. By contrast, the respiratory scale is red and is nestled inside the minute circle. These two scales are positioned so as to make them as legible and clear as possible. Before each scale, the requirement for taking vital signs is listed (base 10 pulsations and base 5 respirations).

The font used is particularly wide and contrasting. Two large arrows accentuate these scales, one of which, curved and crossing the minute circle, is completely unique. Lastly, the silvered opaline dial and Dauphine hands with luminescent lines are identical to the model that inspired this timepiece. The dial has 12 appliqué hour markers: six indexes and six Arabic numerals.

To give more importance for the pulsometer and asthmometer scales, the minute track and the hour markers have been pushed in towards its centre.

The watch comes fitted on a full-grain golden brown calfskin Novonappa® strap.

Limited to 99 pieces, Chronographe Médical x Massena LAB will be available through the network of authorised Angelus retailers. The watch will also be available directly from MassenaLAB.com.

Angelus Gold & Carbon Flying Tourbillon

Angelus presents Gold & Carbon Flying Tourbillon, a limited edition timepiece that fuses it technicality with precious materials and finishes.

Limited to 18 pieces, this sporty flying tourbillon watch features a 42.5 mm diameter case in carbon composite and red gold. The A-250 calibre gives it a three-dimensional skeletonised look with its array of bridges in relief.

For this model, Angelus has introduced a new case design with sleek and dynamic lines to harmonize with the extreme technicality of this supremely graphic timepiece.

The red gold crown with wide notches has a rubber insert for improved grip and is protected by an asymmetrical guard projecting from the lugs. The crenellated bezel presents Angelus’ signature slight angular grooves.

The A-250 skeletonised flying tourbillon calibre is surrounded by an ultra-rigid and ultralight carbon composite container. It is held within an open-worked 18K 5N red gold case middle.

The bridges of the Gold & Carbon Flying Tourbillon form its face. In the absence of a dial, these components play an expressive role in any skeleton movement. And since the main plate of the A-250 calibre is made from woven carbon composite, it is black, accentuating the contrasting 18K red gold bridges. Their volume is also emphasised by their placement above the carbon, arranged in pivotal positions on a higher level.

The bridges are hollowed out, as are the arms of the wheels. The aim of this skeletonisation is to reduce the physical weight of the piece and to lighten the aesthetic impression. After being pared down, these miniature sculptures are chamfered by hand along all their edges. Their flat surface, measuring less than half a millimetre across, then undergoes careful horizontal satin-brushing to give a matte finish. To put the final flourish on these bridges, Angelus has attached them to the main plate using Angelus screws with a proprietary head.

The flange, which marks the transition between bezel and watch interior, is finished with a matte black PVD treatment. It is then graduated with sets of five increments, separated by three-dimensional white gold hour-markers filled with a luminescent substance. Since this flange is placed level with the bezel, it creates a sunken effect that accentuates the feeling of depth in the A-250 calibre.

The tourbillon is situated at 6 o’clock, next to a bridge that does not hold it in place and instead supports the first wheel in the gear train. The tourbillon is only fixed in place from below, making it a flying tourbillon. It is attached directly to the carbon main plate, which is pierced in this spot to give a transparent effect, accentuating the sense of levitation and highlighting the tourbillon’s rotation.

Meanwhile, the balance oscillating within it also has a pared-down construction. Instead of being a ring like most balances, it is a cut, non-circular flywheel. Lighter and more efficient in terms of drag, it further enhances the innate timekeeping performance of an Angelus tourbillon.

The workings are housed within a vast sapphire crystal glass box. This transparent component is angled – almost vertically where it touches the bezel – to provide a large, flat surface for the Gold & Carbon Flying Tourbillon’s spectacular display.

The Angelus Gold & Carbon Flying Tourbillon watch comes with a black ballistic-style rubber strap, featuring an interchangeable system and a red gold and titanium folding clasp.

Angelus Chronodate

Unveiled at Watches & Wonders Geneva 2022 exhibition, the Angelus Chronodate collection pays tribute to its famous chronograph calibre presented 80 years ago, in 1942.

The Chronodate is available in three limited series of 25 pieces. These watches are inspired by the aesthetics of both historic Angelus references and the sleek, open-worked lines of its recent pieces.

With its modular 42.5 mm case, the Chronodate combines red gold, titanium and carbon. Its bicompax automatic chronograph movement is encircled by a peripheral date in reference to the original model.

The Chronodate collection presents a fusion of Angelus styles, with both the historical brand that is part of the Swiss watchmaking landscape and the technical brand with its ultra-dynamic designs of recent years. The choice of chronograph movement and peripheral date is reminiscent of the brand’s glory days and contrast with the multi-structure and multi-material exterior.

Chronodate is presented in a 42.5 mm case. The movement sits within a container made of carbon composite, chosen for its rigidity and lightness. The chronograph’s push-pieces and the ring inserted between the case middle and the bezel are also cut from this matt black material.

Around this container, Angelus has designed a complex case with six main components that brings the case middle and lugs into a single line and houses the bezel marked with twelve notches. The ensemble is available in red gold or titanium.

Angelus Chronodate Red Gold

This modular case opens up possibilities for playing with materials. The same is true for the large-diameter crown that extends beyond its casing and features a band of rubber in its centre for easier handling. The bevelled profile, alternating straight and curved lines, and the energy that it conveys contribute to the sporty credentials of the Chronodate.

Angelus Chronodate Titanium and Blue

Angelus was a pioneering manufacturer in the development of chronograph watches from the 1940s to 1960s. They had a small diameter but the counters on the dial stood out as they were especially large and legible. In the same spirit, the displays on today’s Chronodate dials are imposing, structured and three dimensional.

Angelus Chronodate Titanium and White

The counters and applied Arabic numerals are placed on matt dials, like frosted glass. This is a first in watchmaking, further accentuating the effect of depth and elegantly complementing the sporty case. The red gold Chronodate features a blue PVD dial while the titanium versions are available in opaline white or blue PVD.

Inside, Angelus has installed its latest Calibre A-500. The bicompax format displays the small seconds at 9 o’clock and a 30-minute chronograph counter at 3 o’clock. Encircling the dial, a hand sweeps over the peripheral date display.

The open-worked red arrowhead announces the colour theme of the secondary displays on the Chronodate: the markings on the chronograph push-pieces, the chronograph hand and its 30-minute counter hand are all finished with a touch of red lacquer.

The 4 Hz chronograph operates using a column wheel with horizontal coupling to avoid excess thickness. The automatic self-winding mechanism functions with an oscillating weight made to a historic design, reminiscent of Angelus’s earliest triumphs.

Angelus U53 “Khaki Green” Limited Edition

Incorporating the complex tourbillon mechanism and a hand-wound mechanical skeleton caliber, the Angelus U53 is a versatile, masculine, and ultra-modern timepiece.

This 25-piece limited series spotlights an asymmetrical design with khaki green theme. It also meets all the criteria for watches intended for underwater use.

The khaki shade is visible on the U53’s rotating flange, strap and hands – a bold statement for a sports watch which also works effortlessly in more formal settings, offering a casual, chic look.

Made of grade 5 titanium, the 46 mm diameter case is water-resistant to 300 metres. The 60 minute-graduated rotating flange only turns anticlockwise. Its hands and indices are luminescent. It is equipped with a helium valve, to allow saturation diving. The Angelus U53 is also resistant to magnetic fields and scratching. Grade 5 titanium is a light, comfortable metal which is very well tolerated by the skin even in high moisture conditions yet is hard enough to withstand most scratches.

At 9 o’clock, the watch incorporates the helium valve. The screw-down crown at 2 o’clock controls the rotating flange. A second screw-down crown located at 4 o’clock allows for winding and setting the time.

The outer bezel boasts a powerful design. Its deep indents, in a distinctive shark fin design, immediately draw the eye; the motif is repeated on the flange, also in green and graduated with Arabic numerals.

U53 showcases its movement in spectacular fashion. The Angelus A-300 is a hand-wound mechanical skeleton calibre characterised by its large bridges. The openwork in the centre specifically evokes the design of Angelus’ calibres.

The other signature feature is the modern and highly technical Tourbillon Volant Une Minute complication. The A-300 movement also stands out with slightly asymmetric placement of all its vital components: the barrel at 1 o’clock, winding at 4 o’clock, tourbillon at 6.30, small seconds at 9.30. These unusual locations are dictated by the design of the U53.

This diving watch is mounted on a rubber strap and complimentary hand-stitched.

Angelus U30 Black Titanium

Independent Swiss luxury watch maker Angelus has released a Black Titanium version of its U30 Tourbillon Rattrapante watch.

Ultra-light and ultra-sporty, the Angelus U30 watch unites a variety of prestigious complications: a tourbillon, flyback and split-second chronograph. The 47mm black DLC titanium case with open-worked edges houses one of the most complex automatic skeletonized movements in the world.

This skeletonised, automatic watch with tourbillon, flyback and split-second chronograph with power reserve indicator is quite simply unique. The case, 47mm in diameter and 15mm thick, is made of black DLC titanium.

The lugs and case middle are marked in the centre with a recess that extends the skeletonising of the movement. The open-worked movement has 350 components in total, is treated with black DLC and accentuated in grey.

The split-second function allows the central chronograph second hand to be split in two, allowing two events starting together to be timed. At any moment, the same pusher can bring the two hands back together to the same point. A flyback also allows you to reset and restart timing with a single press, without having to stop and reset the hands.

This exceptional feature does not compromise the lines of the U30: the split-second pusher is integrated into the crown at three o’clock, barely protruding from the case. Similarly, the chronograph’s start and reset pushers are very discreet, integrated into the overall line of the U30’s black titanium case middle. The pushers have a short trajectory, requiring up-front design work and adjustment to a degree rarely achieved in watchmaking.

It is hard to imagine a complication as sophisticated as the split-second function. The movements capable of achieving this complication can be counted on the fingers of two hands–and for the skeletonised version, far fewer.

Angelus has built its modern identity on open-worked pieces integrated into spacious structures that bring the surface area down to the absolute minimum. Here, the A-150 calibre has depth. The hand fitting, bridges, cog and column wheels, patina and rotor create a rich texture of levels for the eye to get lost in.

Chronograph calibres are rarely integrated. They are often made up of a basic calibre and an additional functional module. But Angelus does not subscribe to this approach, instead developing its calibres as a unified system.

Split-second chronographs are often manual. The U30 prefers a sportier, active, technical approach for this extremely rare complication, opting instead for self-winding by a large rotor. Split-second chronographs are hardly ever matched with a flyback. Such a combination is so complex that the watchmaking community is often unaware that it is even possible. The A-150 calibre is capable of such a feat.

Few chronographs also have a power reserve indicator. The traditional display layout leaves little room for an additional gauge. Angelus has placed the indicator at half past seven on the dial, using a subtle asymmetric layout. Tourbillon chronographs are anomalies, and tourbillon rattrapantes are even more unique.

But for Angelus, integrating a rotary regulating organ into the dense and intense A-150 calibre has posed no problem. In fact, combining chronometer and chronograph, measuring precision times and short times is a logical choice for the U30.

When it comes to the U30’s design, structure, decoration, functionality and complications, all of these choices are based on an almost unparalleled level of expertise and independence. The A-150 calibre has been entirely developed, machined, decorated, assembled, adjusted and fitted on the Angelus manufacturing site in La Chaux-de-Fonds. This exclusive movement has been designed with exceptional mechanical and graphic detail in mind.

Born in Switzerland, Thibault Magnin grew up at the foot of the Fribourg Prealps, where he learnt to ski at a very young age. A Swiss and Spanish dual national, he currently lives in the Principality of Andorra, another mountainous country.

Skiing has always been his passion. Not content with spending the winter on the slopes, for the summer he heads to the Dominican Republic, where some of his family lives. Here, he broadens his training with high-level surfing and kite-surfing on the Caribbean Sea.

With his open-minded and multi-disciplinary approach, Thibault quickly joined the ranks of the FIS Top 20 in his two preferred disciplines. Combining a quest for style with unrivalled technical skill, Thibault Magnin’s approach is similar to that taken by Angelus. In freestyle skiing, everyone must master the mandatory figures to be able to invent others. In the world of Angelus, free and dynamic design relies on micron-level precision in execution.

The sportsman is currently preparing for this season’s FIS world championships and has his eye on the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing. Like Angelus in their watchmaking creations, Thibault is dreaming up innumerable new figures that are both innovative and ultra-technical.

Angelus U52 Luis Campos Edition

Angelus has created a special edition watch in partnership with Luis Campos – the distinguished and renowned football scout and one of the best technical directors in world football. Based on the U-50 model from Angelus presents, this new limited-series watch is available in just 25 copies.

Luis Campos was born in a small harbour town in the north of Portugal. Today, he is sporting advisor to Gérard Lopez, owner and president of LOSC football club in Lille, France. He has worked in football for over 30 years, managing several Portuguese clubs before proving himself as an excellent professional scout.

Assisting a number of major European title-winning clubs, with many success stories at Real Madrid in particular, Luis Campos has established a system for spotting young talents thanks to his constant pitch-side presence, his vision and his experience.

From 2013 to 2017, he shone as technical director of AS Monaco, where he received accolades for his daring and lucrative transfer strategy and for discovering now-famous players including Anthony Martial, Bernardo Silva, Bakayoko, Fabinho and Mendy, as well as for his part in a certain Kylian Mbappé’s professional début at a time when only Campos believed in him. At Lille, the anti-conformist mastermind continues to work closely with players such as Osimhen, Pépé, Gabriel, Ikoné and others.

Angelus developed this limited-edition U52 in close collaboration with Luis Campos, who chose the blues that adorn the watch and its strap, and selected the football motif for the small seconds. He also determined the technical specifications for the piece, which is directly descended from the U50 diving watch and its A-300 flying tourbillon skeleton calibre.

The U52 is capable reach depths of 300 metres unscathed and features a 60-minute timing system. Instead of occupying the bezel, the system is situated inside the case on the flange divided into five-minute intervals. This unidirectional rotating ring is operated using the crown at 2 o’clock. One of the U52’s specific features is that the markings from zero (the Angelus logo) to 45 are in a different shade of blue.

Their distinct colour means they can be used to time each half of a football match. Another characteristic that makes this edition so special is the small seconds which, instead of being indicated by a hand, is mounted on a disc painted with a Super-LumiNova football.

Lastly, Luis Campos chose to adorn the tips of the hands, the small-seconds pointer, and the sculpted rubber strap in the same shade of turquoise as the flange.

The 45 mm-diameter grade-5 titanium case houses the Angelus calibre A-300, a skeleton movement with a one-minute flying tourbillon. Paradoxically, its ultralight, graphic structure helps to shield it against vibrations and impacts.

The calibre is held in place by bridges reduced to their bare minimum and lightened further by an open-worked centre. This supportive network adds visual lightness to the U52. But by reducing the suspended masses and therefore the inertia, it also helps to reduce the calibre’s exposure to impacts. Last but not least, the 45 mm-diameter case is designed to withstand high pressure, as demonstrated by its two screw-down crowns.

Technical sophistication can even be seen in the triangular blue markings on the bezel, which are not simply engraved and lacquered. The blue is created by a laser system designed for use in nanometric engraving. Angelus alters the atomic structure of the surface of the titanium so that it only reflects blue light. By using this selective laser interference treatment tailored to the shade chosen by Luis Campos, Angelus creates a specific and very precise photonic vibration that is naturally permanent.

Angelus announces new Friend of the Brand, Minnesota Vikings Wide Receiver Justin Jefferson, and his new customized Angelus U40 timepiece

Swiss luxury watch brand Angelus has appointed Minnesota Vikings Wide Receiver Justin Jefferson as the new Friend of the Brand. The brand has also created a new customized Angelus U40 timepiece for him.

Minnesota Vikings rookie Wide Receiver Justin Jefferson has captured the interest of NFL and sports lovers worldwide. From all accounts, the LSU alumnus and first-round draft pick has the potential to become one of the leading NFL players of the next generation. This up-and-comer has a reputation for precision, performance, and agility, traits shared by Swiss watchmaker Angelus.

Jefferson, a dedicated watch enthusiast, was drawn to the watchmaker’s sporty, skeletonized luxury timepieces, leading his team to approach Angelus to create a custom timepiece. The agile luxury watchmaker rose to the challenge, and Justin Jefferson now proudly sports a new Angelus U40 tourbillon timepiece custom-crafted in purple and yellow colors and inscribed with his name.

Like Jefferson, Angelus demonstrates the house’s manufacturing adaptability and expertise with hands-on customizations, a service that the brand is proud to offer through authorized Angelus retailers.

Collectors can work with the manufacturer to customize a U40 or other Angelus watch model to their taste with simple aesthetic changes, such as to a strap or case, or more involved customizations like case engravings, custom painted hands and indexes, or even personalization of the movement.

It is no wonder that Justin Jefferson gravitated to the U40 model, which has proven to be one of the brand’s most popular models. The limited-edition U40 collection houses an A-300 mechanical hand-wound movement within a 42 mm titanium case, and offers a 60-hour power reserve.

The skeletonized caliber reveals the one-minute flying tourbillon with perfect clarity at 6 o’clock, orbiting at breath-taking speed, surrounded by black ADLC coated bridges. A rubber strap contributes to its athletic appeal.

Angelus U41

Angelus U41 is a light weight, yet sturdy mechanical watch that highlights the stylistic graphic structure of its stunning skeleton movement along with a captivating flying tourbillon complication.

Enclosed in a 42 mm titanium case, the U41 showcases its own architecture. Unfolding in a series of black and transparent sections, this frame is both minimalist and graphic. Technical aspects merge with the aesthetic signature in an optimal combination of stability, design and ergonomics. The network of open-worked plates and bridges thus forms and defines the very identity of the U41.

This new model reflects Angelus’ in-depth knowledge in designing and developing complication and skeleton calibres. The watch also offers a comfortable and proportionate wearing experience on the wrist. The U41 is a sporty watch, as exemplified by its sculpted rubber strap, notched bezel, titanium case and movement designed in a metallic ‘mesh’ format.

The movement architecture is capable of withstanding impacts and cushioning shocks without breaking or being deformed. By enclosing all the main elements, including the wheels and the barrel, between two plates, the movement delivers maximum stability.

The A-300 calibre is a skeleton design and was developed as such. In order to strike the perfect balance between structural solidity and openwork detailing, Angelus opted for a ‘dual-beamed’ plates and bridges design. The void that separates the two arms from these supporting elements is studded with jewels that accommodate the wheel axes. All of these components are treated with black ADLC to add contrast and texture.

Angelus movements frequently exhibit 90-hour autonomy, enabled by a balance oscillation speed of 3 Hz. For the A-300 calibre, the frequency has been set at 4 Hz for 60 hours of power reserve. This higher frequency safeguards the accuracy of the movement during impacts, and thus reduces its power reserve.

The U41 comes in two versions: one dressed in orange hues, and another in a range of blues illuminated by flashes of yellow on the minutes hand and minute circle. White Super-LumiNova coats the hours and minutes hands. The rubber straps work beautifully with the dominant colours.

Despite its technical intensity and sporty feel, the U41 remains reasonably sized: a 42 mm diameter case with a thickness of 10 mm.
