After some deliberation I bought this watch today.

May 14, 2022,01:21 AM

I saw this watch months ago in an antique store and I couldn't keep it out of my mind. So today I bought it. The movement is going to need some looking after but I bought it regardless. I think its a Schild movement but not sure.
On closer inspection the guilloche is more interesting than I expected. And the markers are cut in and gilded...not applied. 
I know close to nothing about the brand so if anybody wants to express their knowledge I'm all ears.

...and the dial is interesting, although I don't think it is guilloche. Hopefully the movement will clean up well and you'll have a keeper. I like it : )

Maybe...but I don't think anybody was spending the time...

Thanks for your comments.

You are probably correct considering what guilloche looks like on a Shapiro or Breguet (and the resultant prices). But I like it too and I'll get more than my moneys worth in enjoyment.

Not expensive do not mean it is rubish

You pick up those watches that belongs on the wrists of passioned watch lovers. Those watches that needs to get out of a drawer, and need a fresh bath in the hands of a watch maker. Angelus is for what i know have some name. I guess it made still watches,... 

I'd rather have Greg's Dato . . .

. . . than Tony's!

Since I'm not on a first name basis with the WP membership it took me a few minutes to sleuth out who Tony is.

But I prevailed and Tony...if you're listening in I'll gladly trade with you. Heck...I'll even pay shipping both ways!!

Don't know if Tony will play ball, but if he does . . .

I've also read through most of the threads that come up when I search "Angelus" on this site. Although most of the posts are either regarding newer Angelus watches or the obviously more desirable vintage chronographs, it still provides interesting reading...
