 1,422.05

1 in stock

A very nice example of a classy Angelus chronograph watch, this iconic model from the 1940’s has been professionally restored and fully serviced by Localtime.
It is in excellent condition and ready to wear or join your collection. Serial number 236229 places its production between 1942 and 1945. The rather large for the period (35.50mm or 37.50mm counting the crown at 3h) case has been gently cleaned but not polished, the stunning and original dial and hands gently cleaned and the Angelus in-house Cal. 215 movement has been fully serviced. The plexi glass is brand new. We have made many photos, including some snapshots from the service bench and also some closeup snapshots, just for fun. This lovely chronograph is fitted with one of our own premium calf leather straps in tan brown.

As with all the watches we handle inhouse, the listed buy-it-now price includes a 6-month written warranty from the time of purchase. Do not hesitate to contact us for any further information you might need.

EXTRA! Check out my own Localtime straps: Handmade from premium calf leather to my own specifications in Italy, they come in 5 sizes (lug width/buckle width): 18/16, 19/16, 20/16, 21/18 and 22/18mm & 11 colours: tan, brown, dark brown, black, cinnamon brown, olive green, denim blue, grey blue, smooth dark brown, cognac brown and vintage green. I sell these separately in the store under Accessories & Straps  and you can also see them in the last photo here.

Important Note: Sometimes I am asked what I exactly mean with ‘professionally inspected by Localtime’. Here is my theory on vintage watches: as a purveyor of vintage watches, my effort is to always do only what is needed to the watch. I do not buy ‘junk’ watches to resell. I am choosy with my purchases and always sell watches that are, to my knowledge, authentic and in good condition. I first inspect the watch, both visually (cosmetically) and then mechanically. If I judge that the watch is not yet in need of a full service then I do not put the watch through a service which, by the way, entails a lot of risks too. Instead, I give it what I call my ‘Spa’ treatment which will include a cleaning, changing of gaskets, oiling, lubricating and mechanical testing. If the plexi is heavily scratched or discoloured and it can not be cleaned, I change it. If the crown is wrong or worn, I also change it. Now, if the watch is in need of a full service, then my ‘professionally inspected’ description becomes ‘professionally serviced’. In both cases, I mention what has been changed (if anything) on the watch and I include a written warranty with my listed price.

Important Note On Straps/Bracelets: The straps I use on my watches (leather, canvas, suede, rubber) are always brand new, unless otherwise mentioned and, in most cases, I also sell them separately in my store, in different colours and sizes. In the case of metal bracelets, if the watch is NOS, the bracelet is also unused. If the watch is pre-owned with its original bracelet, then the bracelet is also pre-owned, unless otherwise mentioned. Either way, if in doubt, please ask.
