Angelus Chronodatos are the first calendar chronograph wristwatch to have appeared in the late 1930s, finding a beautiful example can be an hard task since these watches weren’t well isolated from humidity and dust. Most have a silver dial, and only a few have came out of the factory with a black or grey/black dial. This is once again a very rare opportunity to get your hands on a historically important chronograph in a rare and desirable configuration.
