History of the Angelus / Stolz Freres watch manufactory (source: Wikipedia):

Swiss watchmaker

The manufacture Stolz Frères sa was founded in 1891 in Le Locle by the brothers Gustav and Albert Stolz. At the time of the company's foundation, the small office was located on the upper floor of a house in the Rue du Marais, later in the Rue de Jardin. In 1898, the third brother, Charles Stolz, joined the company after completing his watchmaking apprenticeship. The clock parts supplied were assembled in small workshops. In the beginning, the focus was on pendulettes and case watches. The brand name used was Angelus.

From 1912 onwards, the company increasingly specialised in more complicated movements with repeaters and chronographs, which were exported to Germany, Italy and Russia.

In addition, pocket watches of the highest quality (repeaters, chronographs, calendars) and table clocks (alarm clocks, 8-day clocks, travel clocks) were produced. These watches won prizes at the 1905 Liège, 1906 Milan and 1914 Berne competitions.

Angelus Chrono-Dato
Later, wristwatches with calendar and/or chronograph function were also produced.

A well-known model is the Chronodato, a chronograph with a 45-minute counter, month display under the twelve, weekday display above the six and date display from the center by means of a hand. The caliber Angelus 217, a Breguet balance wheel chronograph movement, was used. This watch was manufactured around 1945.

The first Chronodato's were delivered with the designation "chrono-date", only later they were renamed to "chrono-dato". Furthermore, Stolz&Freres supplied well-known Swiss watch manufacturers with movements. The chrono-dato was the first wristwatch chronograph with a full calendar to be produced in series.

Today, collectors covet an automatic wristwatch with quarter repeater ("Tinkler") that was released in 1957/1958, but which was not successful at the time. Only 100 watches of this model were produced. The basic movement was the caliber as 1580 with winding in both directions of rotation.

This was followed in 1976 by a wristwatch with a 5-minute repeater. The advent of the quartz watch marked the end of the company, which was subsequently bought by Evaco sa in Neuchâtel.
