1950s Angelus Triple-Date Chronodato
What We Fancy
The Chronodato model was introduced by Swiss watchmaking powerhouse Angelus in 1942. This was the world’s first chronograph with a full calendar (day-date and month) and due to these features, it became highly popular among consumers and collectors to this day. So much so, in fact, that the line was in production for roughly 10 years following its release into the early 1950s. These are extremely rare watches to come up for sale and in all original/ recently fully serviced condition such as this is hard to come by.
