Holy Trinity of vintage Angelus watchesHoly TrinityIt all began with the Angelus Hungarian Air Force watch. I brought up it thoroughly therefore i do not get into details but that was the catalyst. I found it, liked the style plus the historical link with my property country therefore i decided We need one. Sought out it for quite a while, studied the piece learn about the movement along with luck I stumbled upon one though an associate. For this piece I dug deeper to the good Angelus. I learned about various models, got to know a small number of amazing people and even taken part in this great project. Something led to another and before I knew it, the holy trinity of Angelus replica watches (collectors like to give such names to pieces, so here's my contribution) what food was in my watch collection. But let's start it right from the start.Angelus caliber 216 - 215 - 217AngelusTo me, this holy trinity include 3 different models from Angelus which all share precisely the same features. Have the ability to 38mm (or close to that) cases, each of them is stainless steel and many types of 3 needs to have a 21x movement. Furthermore, these movements were one another's successors terms of development. Their Chrono-Datoluxe can be a work of genius, their various moon phase models are going to die for, not to mention their amazing number of travel and table clocks.Angelus 215 L.E.216If the 217 may be the Omega (no pun here) the 216 is the Alpha on the holy trinity. This can be the rolex replica base caliber with the 215 (216 having an added chronograph function). The 215 would be the base caliber in the 217 (chronograph with triple-calendar function). Could you still follow? Good. So, 216 then 215 and 217 to do. We shall however get back to this later as much as chronological order is worried. The replica watches either have chrome or steel cases in proportion 38mm (actually 37.5mm) with caliber 216. It is a manual-wind movement with central sweep used and shock-protection. The 215 does not have any shock-protection. The caseback is either snap-back or screw-back with "Hermetique" onto it. My 216 on a nato in good company - photo by way of a friend and fellow Angelus fan @giuseppe.totaroThese models had a higher water proofing on account of a seal from the case. I've got light dial version but you will find these with black dials too. Rare coming from all I'm sure are definitely the steel case black dial replica watches. My watch's serial starts with 211xxx, according to the amazing article by Dr. 脰hm-K hnle these replica watches were introduced around 1940. The serial numbers matches that date exactly. They pop up on various forums and eBay every now and then while and might range from 鈧?00 to 鈧?000 and also higher. Contrary to some opportunist sellers' stories we really do not have any facts about these replica watches being utilized by any military branch. This can large cases people prefer to call them military replica watches, but it is not proven to be correct yet.The 216 resting to use box215Speaking of military, I mentioned previously the Angelus L.E. with caliber 215. This watch was absolutely not really the only model basic movements. The 215 was obviously a popular caliber from Angelus. A great deal of replica watches , which they produced replica watches with this movement for a long time. Earlier models fairly small (34-35mm). They often had flat pushers and steel or chrome cases. Once i mentioned above, the 215 (unlike the 216) did not have any shock-protection. replica breitling montbrilliant watches I have seen Angelus 215 chronographs with monochrome dial likewise. They may be still around plus some are relatively cheap to obtain. The later ones like I have with pump pushers and greater 38mm case are even so the bee's knees. These chronographs would be the second accessory the Holy Trinity. Similar in proportions to your 216 why not a tad bit larger.The stunning Angelus LEThere is but one interesting thing though; I'd been in the assumption until this chronograph movement could be the lower time only caliber however it seems that in this instance this can be the wrong conclusion. Firstly, the naming of the caliber 215 (with the chronograph), 216 to the time-only and ultimately 217 for that chronograph triple date is chronological. Second panerai automatic watches , the 215 didn't have any shock-protection while the 216 already had probably as an improvement towards the previous caliber. What is a more complex reasoning and explains what actually transpired and ways in which is exactly what oh my gosh friend and Angelus expert Dr. Christoph 脰hm-K hnle told me. He shed some light on another logical way we can imagine that the above mentined is true.In accordance with Dr. Christoph 脰hm-K hnle;"The 215 was indeed developed (not simply launched) prior to the 216, considering that the sweep seconds bridge with the 216 is actually the identical part as being the chronograph central seconds counter cock, still showing a clearly cut-off appendix of the second branch on the seconds counter cock originally holding another wheel. Further, the 215 just is really a revised type of the 2 main earlier, very successful calibres 15 and 210 with just a few improvements. Also, central seconds sports and doctor's as well as military replica watches were a new fashion in the 1940's (although few already were made much earlier) and Angelus planned to take part in into it. Further, the ghd serial numbers reveal that about 40000(!) chronographs (210 and 215) were sold after launch of the 215, ahead of the 216 was sold." Another part of Angelus mystery unfolded.Caliber 215 in the full glory217Lastly, we have now one of the most handsome models in the vintage Angelus fall into line; the Chronodato. Again, it is a piece I discussed inside a previous episode of #TBT therefore you are aware of the watch already. It can be a real well-balanced example in terms of dial design, clear and straightforward to read through and works like a charm. In accordance with my knowledge Angelus launched the Chronodato in 1942. A couple of years once the calibre 216 was brought to industry. Inside, the last within the holy trinity of Angelus, the calibre 217 a handbook wind chronograph movement using the added triple calendar function.The length of the Chronodato comes to the 215 L.E., a little bigger 38mm and much thicker. It's because the added calendar aim of course. Still not too thick be to uncomfortable. Steel case, with snap-in caseback along with the D3 type logo both about the dial and on your back, similar to my 215. You could ask the reason that this 215 contains the newer logo (like the 217), as the time-only 216 model that meant to come after the 215 has got the older D2 type logo. Well Angelus produced the chronograph calibre 215 for so very long it went even to the early 1950's. My example is just one of these later models.The trio is completeThe last addition to the holy trinity was my 216 which stumbled on me a few months ago. It's not at all perfect, but I really adore the appearance and size of it. I haven't pondered the similarities between these Angelus' until I'd all 3 pieces during my possession. While many might imagine otherwise, I believe it's a cool collection. You could consider going this path when planning where you need to opt for your collection. Also like most cases, the Angelus Chrono-Datoluxe plus some with their other magnificent pieces are merely so small they seem funny on my small large wrist (no less than this is the way I am) while these 38mm steel replica watches sit perfectly. The three replica watches are marvelous, each for any different reason. Keep your eyes open for the great example you should also share the success by himself. The gorgeous Angelus LE
