Beautiful Angelus Chronodato successfully combines character of tool or military watch with avantgarde horological technology and complications. That is what Angelus was famous for - charisma, design and top technology. Chronodato series features combination of 2-reg chronograph and full calendar showing day of week, day of month and month itself powered by in-house caliber 217.
This particular piece is very unusual and rare - it is signed "Angelus" on the case and the movement, but "Halcon" on the dial! Halcon - is the name of Swiss watch manufacturer which was active till approximately mid-50s. The story behind this watch is unknown, however it seems like a special order or prototype made by Angelus for Halcon.
The watch went through complete service in August 2016.
