Watch Angels

Introducing “Guest Watches”: enthusiast grade watches, factory direct.

With the opening of our new store, where Angel funded watches can be purchased from stock or reserved during production (after Angel rounds end), we have introduced a new category of watches: guest watches.

What are guest watches?

Guest watches are Swiss made mechanical watches produced by us that did not originate from an Angel project. They are periodically introduced in our store.

Why are they so interesting?

These watches are interesting because they are independent, curated, “enthusiast grade” and they are produced in-house at our factory in Switzerland.

We offer them “factory direct” and at fair collecting prices to the community; sold from stock and with immediate delivery.

They are special watches with an outstanding intrinsic value.

1st Guest Watches: Waltham Vanguard and AeroNaval

These unconventional watches feature and innovative dodecagonal design and titanium Grade 5 cases.

The house Dubois-Dépraz movements which have been modified to yield innovative features.

The dials follows the angles of the design, with an embossed W pattern on different colored backgrounds that gives it depth and perspective. The particular hands, and the applied indexes and numbers are coated with Super-LumiNova® lume for maximum night readability
