1941 Angelus Chronodato Salmon Dial

14-days Inspection Period / 1-year Warranty

Delivery: ca.10 days

Beautiful Angelus Chronodato successfully combines the character of tool or military watch with avantgarde horological technology and complications. That is what Angelus is famous for charisma, design and cutting-edge technology. Chronodato series feature a combination of 2-reg chronograph and the full calendar showing day of the week, date, and month itself. It is powered by in-house caliber 217.

Most Chronodato pieces were considered to be a dress watch rather than a tool watch. Consequently, the majority of the pieces were made in solid gold or had gold-plated cases, and both types normally had beautiful non-luminous silver or champagne-colored dials. This particular example is notable for being quite the opposite - it boasts with a stunning salmon dial and fancy blue tempered hands with radium lume. Rare, exquisite, and fancy timepiece which will fit literally any collection.

    Measuring a watch

    It is always crucial to understand the size of the watch, especially when it comes to vintage watches which are generally considered as too small in comparison with what watch industry offers today. For example, the original Patek Philippe Calatrava introduced in the 1930s was only 31 mm in diameter, while today's classic Calatrava is 39 mm. When you think about 8 mm, it doesn't seem to be a big difference, but believe it is.

    In our condition reports we normally disclose three most important parameters as follows: diameter without crown / lug-to-lug length / lug width. 

    Diameter without crown

    It is, so far, the most important measurement to understand the size of a regular round-shaped watch.It helps you to understand proportions and overall look of the watch. It is important to consider width of the bezel and color of the dial, because certain combinations may make the watch look bigger, while some other smaller. It is all very individual, however there is common understanding:

    Lug-to-lug width

    This parameter will help you to understand whether the watch is comfortable for wearing. You should compare lug-to-lug width with the width of your wrist, and if lug-to-lug width is smaller or equal, then this watch shall be comfortable.

    Lug width

    This measurement is defining what size of strap you need for the particular watch. Depending on era and manufacturer you can find watches with lug width between 14 mm and 24 mm. Most common sizes are 18 mm and 20 mm.
