Founded in 1891 in Switzerland, Angelus has been one of the most influential horological manufactures of the last century. Watchmaking connoisseurs universally hailed Angelus' pioneering, in-house developed movements and timepieces, which continue to be coveted by collectors all over the world. Today’s Angelus is fully equipped to design, produce, finish, assemble, regulate and test all its movements and timepieces in-house. The Angelus collection blends the very best of vintage high watchmaking with contemporary design and materials.
Angelus was founded by the brothers Stolz with the establishment of a watchmaking Manufacture in Le Locle, Switzerland. Over the past century, Angelus forged a fine reputation for creating exceptional chronograph and multi-complication wristwatches, multi-display travel clocks with long power reserves, and alarm watches.
The Brand marked several firsts along the way, including Chronodato (1942), first series wristwatch chronograph with calendar; Chrono-Datoluxe
(1948), featuring the very first big date in a chronograph wristwatch, Datalarm (1956), first wristwatch ever featuring both alarm and date function or Tinkler (1958), cult timepiece, first automatic repeater and first fully waterproof repeater.
