Angelus, a Swiss brand from the late nineteenth century, makes a triumphant return with the U10 Tourbillon Lumière a flying tourbillon in a limited edition series of 25 numbered pieces.
Angelus has set numerous milestones in the history of Swiss watchmaking, such as its famous travel clocks that display their various indications on multiple dials. The brand now draws on this heritage, together with 1960s-70s industrial design, to deliver an avant-garde wristwatch.
The U10 Tourbillon Lumière has a linear power-reserve indicator on the side of the case, seven sapphire crystals, including four that frame the flying tourbillon, allowing light to flood this mechanical marvel to create a three-dimensional effect. The movement, which provides a 90-hour power reserve, has been entirely developed and made by Angelus after four years in development.
