Originally released in 2018, the Angelus U50 Diver Tourbillon was the brand’s first diver’s watch. With a high level of skeletonization of its movement allowing for maximum transparency and an incredible view of all of its components, the Angelus U50 Diver Tourbillon is now also available in a Black Edition. The new Angelus U50 Diver Tourbillon Black Edition maintains the same proportions at 45 mm as its predecessor, but now in a very stealthy-looking iteration.
Things to Know About the Watch
The watch now features a black DLC titanium case with two large screw-down crowns. The two-position crown at 4 o’clock is used for winding and setting the time, while the crown at 2 o’clock is used to rotate the unidirectional 60-minute flange ring. The inner flange rotates with precision and in a extremely smooth way. Opposite the crowns on the left side of the case at the 9 o’clock position, a helium escape valve is placed. The watch is water resistant to 300 meters. The Angelus U50 Diver Tourbillon Black Edition comes on a very supple and well made black rubber strap bearing the Angelus “A” logo with a titanium pin-buckle. The new Angelus U50 Diver Tourbillon Black Edition just like its predecessor is available in a limited edition of only 25 pieces.
The new Angelus U50 Diver Tourbillon is powered by the manual wound calibre A-300. This ultra-slim movement has painstakingly executed contemporary ‘haute horlogerie’ finishing with snailed black ADLC coating and chamfered edges. The design is enhanced by a skeletonized ratchet and barrel in the exclusive Angelus six-spoke design.
On the Wrist & Pricing
On the wrist, the new Angelus U50 Diver Tourbillon Black Edition wears true to its size and with very stealth wrist presence. While the original U50 Diver Tourbillon was one of our favorite watches released by Angelus, this new Black Edition now takes that spot. The best part is that this iteration is much easier to wear with any kind of outfit as the previous model was a little bit too colorful for that purpose.
