If you are a fan of vintage pulsometers chronographs we have good news for you, as Angelus in collaboration with Massena LAB, have just presented a limited edition new Chronographe Medical.
Inspired by the Angelus “doctor’s watch” from 1960, the Swiss brand’s latest chronograph features a design very similar to the original with an emphasis on the internal dual scale that measures pulse and respiration.
On the outside, the new watch now features a 39mm stainless steel case (2mm wider than the original) which features a sapphire glass front now without a magnifier, a fluted crown at 3 o’clock, a mono-pusher chronograph at 2 o’clock and a screw sapphire case back which, in addition to revealing the splendour of the manual movement, is also engraved with the individual numbering type “XX / 99” referring to the limited edition.
But it is the silvered opaline dial that is the showcase of this little wonder, featuring applied Arabic hour markers and dauphine faceted hands, a central chronograph seconds hand, a running seconds at 9 o’clock, a black minute track that houses a base 10 pulsations on the outside, with a scale in three tones: green, black and red, and inside a base 5 respirations in red. Finally, the inscriptions of the brand’s logo at 12 o’clock wrapped into the “shield” and the two lines of text at 6 o’clock with the watch name “Chronographe Medical”.
At the heart of the new Angelus runs the Caliber A5000, which operates at 21,600 Vph and offers up to 42 hours of power reserve.
The watch comes attached to a golden brown calfskin strap with a pin buckle.
As already mentioned, this is a limited edition of just 99 units, which can be purchased for the price of CHF 19,900, which is not cheap, in a world where rarities come at a premium price.
