U10 Tourbillon Lumière / Angelus


Angelus is owned by Citizen, which also owns Arnold & Son and La Joux Perret. The latter being a movement manufacture, giving Angelus automatic access to a team with know-how and capability to manufacture very sophisticated movements. The Angelus calibre A100 which powers the U10 Tourbillon Lumière is hand-wound and has hours, minutes, central dead beat seconds (ticks like a quartz watch), a 90-hour linear power reserve indication and a one-minute flying tourbillon. The movement bridges and plates are in nickel-silver that is bevelled and polished. It beats at 2.5Hz (18,000 vph) and has a screwed balance with a Breguet-overcoil — via PROFESSIONAL WATCHES
