Chronodate Angels Share x Revolution

Chronograph aesthetics

A chronograph was chosen to recall Angelus’s roots, since the brand was a first-rate manufacturer of these pieces from the 1930s onwards. The watches were small in diameter to cater to the tastes of the time. These modest dimensions made the counters appear particularly large and visible, so Angelus has naturally now chosen to give the Chronodate imposing counters that offer optimal readability.

The counters are set on a deep-black dial fittingly described as “velvet black” or on a subtle shade of “fern” green. All the dials are punctuated with large applied Arabic numerals with Super-LumiNova. 

While the case of this 25-piece limited edition is incredible, complicated and worthy of your attention alone, it’s the dial that’s likely to take your breath away. Salmon dials have become something of a house speciality here at Revolution, and this rich grené-finished example, with its prominent counters and applied Arabic numerals, is one of the finest we’ve seen. Finally, to celebrate in style, each watch will come with a bottle from the watchmaker’s namesake, the prestigious Château Angélus, a Grand Crus Bordeaux vineyard. This tasty association is also where the name "Angels' Share" springs from.

A dynamic movement

Inside the Chronodate collection is Angelus’s chronograph movement, the A-500 calibre. Its format displays the small seconds at 9 o’clock and the 30-minute chronograph counter at 3 o’clock. A hand-based date display circles around the edge of the dial to pay homage to the first Angelus Chronodate in 1942. Its red arrowhead sets the tone for the secondary indications; the markings on the chronograph push-pieces, the chronograph central seconds hand and the 30-minute counter hand are all finished with a touch of red lacquer.

Oscillating at a frequency of 4 Hz, the A-500 calibre incorporates a column wheel and a horizontal coupling clutch to keep a slim profile. It operates via a self-winding system with an oscillating weight shaped like a capital letter “A” above a star – Angelus’s emblem depicting a bell and its clapper. This rotor is in tungsten on the Chronodate Titanium. A reference to the early days of Angelus right at the heart of the mechanism.

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.


Angelus’ facility is a stone’s throw from where the Stolz brothers set up their first watchmaking manufacture in 1891.

Today’s Angelus manufacture is fully equipped with a highly skilled team allowing the House to design, produce, finish, assemble, regulate and test all its movements and timepieces in-house. For non-movement components, Angelus partners with the best suppliers in the Swiss watch industry.

Throughout, the Angelus manufacture team strives to continually innovate and is always researching and investigating new techniques, as well as keeping abreast of developments in other fields of fine mechanics.


Like its timepiece, Angelus manufacture blends the best of classic high watchmaking with modern production processes.

While the Brand employs skilled artisans using time-honoured techniques and tools to delicately craft and finish components using traditional methods, it also boasts a state-of-the-art production facility featuring latest machinery programmed and operated by experienced technicians, engineers and watchmakers.


The Manufacture embraces horological tradition by working classic materials such as precious metals, steel and brass, as well as the challenges and possibilities presented by new materials like carbon fibre.

The skilled team of the decoration department provide an inimitable, personal touch to Angelus creations by adorning plates and bridges with artful, traditional finishes including Côtes de Genève, circular graining, snailing and sunray guilloches using traditional tools guided by their experienced hands. 
Spectacular finishes can also be achieved using newest technologies such as laser engraving.


Meticulous quality checks are performed during each process, between operations and, of course, on the completion of the finished timepiece, using a variety of measuring equipment testing various aspects including precision, torque, strength and water resistance.
