HANDS Original


Dial signed. DIAM. 37 mm. THICKNESS 12 mm. Although very little information is found on these medical Angelus watches, we know that at least 3 different versions exists. One earlier version featuring a very distinctive outer green pulsation scale, a similar model to this one but featuring a second chronograph pusher and this one, with its distinctive pulsation and asthmometer scales, single button chronograph, modified valjoux 22 caliber and a very rare loupe integrated in the glass that magnifies the pulsation scale in beautiful red, black and green colors. For a similar example see, Brunner/ Pfeiffer-Belli's, wristwatches, page 23.
