1940's ANGELUS Vintage Large Mens Triple Calendar Chronograph, 18K Gold Plated - The Chronodato
Beautiful Original Condition - Complicated & Large - 100% Feedback
Today's offering showcases this beautiful all-original Chronodato similar to one I recently sold out of my personal collection...for $100,000 less than a comparable Rolex.
It has an awesome large aviator-style chronograph look and tracks the date, day of the week, and month. It's stylish and even practical.
When talking about Dato Compax's, the first one that often comes to mind is the Rolex 6036. It's probably the most famous DC. The only problem is that it often costs north of $100,000.
Which is why affordable Dato-Compax's like this one continue to become more and more desirable, and I think will make good long-term investments.
Not only vastly cheaper, some of these more affordable DC's are just as fine in many ways.
Comparing it to the Rolex, this watch also has a very finely finished and beautiful movement (which is in pleasing condition), a much more elegant and balanced dial, and it only costs about 1/40 as much. These reasons and its nice large size are why until recently, I had one in my collection.
And unlike the Rolex this watch is a so-called “manufacture,” meaning that Angelus did not use a movement from another brand like Rolex did by using a Valjoux movement, but instead made it all in-house (both design/development, manufacturing, and assembly).
The movement is the Angelus caliber SF 217 which is based on the Angelus SF 215. Something to note, the SF 215 is actually the same movement Panerai used in their Mare Nostrum chronograph. So in a sense the basis of the Angelus Chronodato is the same as one of the first Panerai chronographs.
This one has never been polished and, with the exception of the original crown which has surface plating wear, is in about a 9 out of 10 condition.
Note that the back has been snapped on in perfect alignment since the photos were taken.
Our Master Watchmaker has fully serviced the watch which consists of fully disassembling the movement, carefully inspecting each part, replacing any overly worn components with genuine correct Angelus parts, reassembling and lubricating the movement, and extensive timing testing and regulation (an $895 value).
For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new calfskin strap with Ostrich grain making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. international warranty on the movement and its function and a full-page custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
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 often represent good value for the money as they are excellent quality selling for comparatively modest prices.
