Like a Phoenix rising from the ashes, Swiss watchmaker Angelus recently unveiled the U10 Tourbillon Lumière timepiece after a considerable break in operations. The watch is limited to just 25 units and flaunts a 62.7mm x 38mm x 15mm annealed steel case, which received a black PVD treatment on the inside as well as a bead blasting treatment on the outside. The case also ensures a water resistance of 98 feet and includes seven AR-coated sapphire crystals that provide protection from the elements.
The beating heart of this watch is Angelus’ own caliber A100, which comes with an operating frequency of 18,000 vph, a power reserve of 90 hours and 38 wonderful jewels. The movement’s most important functions are represented by the one-minute flying tourbillon, central dead beat seconds and linear power reserve indicator.
The dial boasts a pair of white SuperLuminova dots at 12 o’clock complemented by similar dots at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock. The hands that indicate the hours, minutes and power reserve received a black SuperLuminova coating that glows blue in the dark. The elegant strap was stitched by hand and was put together using high quality black alligator leather complemented by a stainless steel folding clasp.
