1946 Angelus Chronodato for Maximo Blum Caracas

Free Worldwide Insured Shipping with FedEx / Authenticity Guaranteed / 14-days Inspection Period / 1-year Warranty

Beautiful Angelus Chronodato successfully combines the character of tool watch with avant-garde horological technology and complications. That is what Angelus was famous for - charisma, design and top technology. Chronodato series features a combination of 2-reg chronograph and the full calendar showing the day of the week, date, and month. It is powered by a completely in-house caliber 217.

This particular example is notable for its' early execution, crisp full solid gold case in exceptionally mint condition and a matching dial aged to matching the light-champagne tone. The dial's layout is completely unusual for the Chronodato of that age and is signed for a local dealer active in Caracas back in that time - Maximo Blum. Even though the dial is completely original, it is unknown whether the dealer's signature was added at the factory or later in Caracas.
