Swiss watch manufacturer Angelus has announced that it will introduce the U10 Tourbillon Lumière, a new timepiece that pays homage to some of the most iconic designers of the 1960s and 70s.
The watch has dimensions of 62.75 mm x 38 mm and contains an in-house Angelus mechanical movement A100 that is complete with an oversized 60-second flying Tourbillion, that is offset from the mechanism.
Its deconstructed movement beats at a frequency of 18,800 vibrations per hour (2.5 Hz) and boasts a minimum power reserve of approximately 90 hours. It additionally features hours, minutes, and central dead beat seconds functions – whilst a linear power reserve indicator is also on offer.
The hands and indications have been infused with Super-LumiNova coating and are presented on a concave, translucent-grey sapphire dial. It is complemented by bridges and plates that are produced using traditional German silver that is both bevelled and polished.
Each U10 Tourbillon Lumière is supplied on a hand-stitched, cut and stained edge black alligator leather strap with a stainless steel pin folding buckle that is engraved with the Angelus logo.
It is water resistant up to a pressure of 3 bar (30 meters or 100 feet) and will be limited to only 25 timepieces, it has been confirmed.
