Description

This is a beautiful Angelus Rectory vintage monopusher chronograph from approximately 1927. This watch is a significant and well-preserved example of one of the earliest chronograph wristwatches produced. It is powered by the first in-house chronograph movement manufactured by Angelus, calibre SF 15. This watch was Fully Serviced by ClockSavant. Rectory was a brand owned by Angelus. This watch was, in my opinion, ahead of its time. Its overall design foretold the future renaissance enjoyed by chronograph wristwatches. It features a beautifully aged original dial, fixed lugs, blued hands, and a breguet overcoil hairspring. The accuracy and amplitude performance of this watch after servicing is exceptionally strong. This watch was a pleasure to fully service-- it is robust, well maintained, and well designed. This is a very nicely sized larger watch at 38mm excluding the crown.

For more information on the history of Angelus I highly recommend a publication by Fratello Watches: Angelus - An Exceptional Swiss Watch Manufacture - A collector's guide Text: Christoph Ohm-Kuhnle. Photo research: Christian Pfeiffer-Belli and Christoph Ohm-Kuhnle.

Size guide for wristbands

1 | Lug width

The lug width is the width of the strap at the end that is attached to the watch. This is the interior distance between the two lugs (horn-like protrusions) on the watch casing. The strap will fit your watch only if the lug width of the watch is the same width as the strap.

2 | Buckle width

The buckle width is the width of the strap at the buckle end. If you want to keep your watch’s original buckle and replace only the strap, the width of the original buckle must be identical to the strap width. For watches with folding clasps, please choose a strap specially made for your particular clasp.

3 | Strap length

The strap length is the combined length of the short strap side 3A (without buckle) and the long strap side 3B. For metal straps, the length of the strap including the clasp is measured in the closed position.

4 | Strap thickness

Strap thickness is the height of the strap. Many leather straps thin out towards the buckle end, or “taper”. If you want to keep your watch’s original buckle and replace only the strap, the strap thickness must match the height of the original buckle. For watches with folding clasps, please choose a strap specially made for your particular clasp.
