Angelus Introduces U21 Tourbillon and U22 Tourbillon

Angelus U21 Tourbillon and U22 Tourbillon

Angelus introduces two new versions of its Skeleton Tourbillon movement: the U21 and U22.
Marking a new chapter in Angelus’ Urban Collection of cutting-edge watchmaking, the U21 and U22 Tourbillon revisit the singular movement and streamlined design focused on structural optimization. From the movement to the case design, the objective from the get-go has been to showcase the splendor of the movement’s architecture and tourbillon while reducing as much weight as possible. For this purpose, the U21 and U22 Tourbillon feature a carbon fiber main plate, giving the impression of being a part of the case.

The U21 Tourbillon interprets the uniquely structured movement in a noble metal case, combing the bezel-less carbon fiber central case element with polished and satin-brushed 18-karat red gold lugs, enhancing its visual appeal. The skeletonized bridges are solid 18-karat red gold for additional harmony between the case and movement. To further enhance legibility, the hands are filled with white SuperLumiNova.
The U22 Tourbillon on the other hand features a carbon fiber and titanium case like the original U20, however with an even greater emphasis on weight reduction.

Thanks to its carbon fiber main plate, the U22 Tourbillon weighs a mere 54 grams in total. The flange ring has also been revisited, set with satin-finished applied indexes for the hour markers. The central hands offer a racy look thanks to the red SuperLumiNova.
A tourbillon movement that has been created from scratch to be as open, three-dimensional and resplendent as possible. The discerning eye will be pleased to discover that haute horlogerie has not been sacrificed on the altar of minimal mass: components have been hand-chamfered, hand-polished and hand satin-finished to ensure that they look as good as they are filigree.

And to further increase visibility into the top of the three-dimensional movement, both models features a unique design element. The case is fashioned without a bezel and instead uses a sapphire crystal dome, which also allows a sideways view onto the movement.
Both models are available in a limited edition of 18 pieces each, the U21 Tourbillon in NPT carbon-fiber/red gold case, while the U22 Tourbillon in NPT carbon-fiber/titanium case.
