ANGELUS PUSHES THE LIMITS EVEN FURTHER

The goal with the U21 Tourbillon is to present the essence of the movement by removing any superfluous material.

 

What seems to look deceptively simple to achieve requires great artistic vision and engineering prowess. The more material that is removed, the more the structure of the movement has to be carefully calculated to ensure rigidity and sturdiness for a maximum precision.

 

 

THE A-250 CALIBER

 

The tourbillon’s steel cage is hand chamfered and polished with flat surfaces either mirror-polished or satin-finished.

 

The variable inertia balance wheel is regulated by four gold weights around its perimeter. In the quest for high performance, the rim of the balance wheel has been milled to maximize aerodynamics and reduce air resistance.

 

The highly engineered movement further features beam-type titanium bridges which are skeletonized to reduce weight and offer a better view of the watch's inner workings.

 

The titanium mainspring barrel bridge is supported by slim pillars set directly into the carbon fiber main plate.

 

All wheels throughout the entire gear train have a specially developed six-spoke design, again in the quest for maximum rigidity for minimum mass.

 

All of the rubies, which actually act as low-friction bearings, are fitted into solid gold chatons that are embedded in the carbon fiber main plate. Gold chatons not only look good and attest to the movement's haute horlogerie bona fides, they are also non-magnetic and corrosion resistant like the carbon fiber itself.

 

 

 

THE U21 TOURBILLON IN DETAILS

 

The carbon fiber used in the U21 Tourbillon is very specific, offering the essential characteristics necessary for use in a haute horlogerie timepiece, with tolerances in the micron range. They are not decorative elements, but 100% functional.

 

The heart of the U21 Tourbillon is the flying tourbillon. The tourbillon is “flying", which means that it does not require an upper supporting bridge. This helps to maximize the three-dimensionality of the movement and allows maximum appreciation of the technical and aesthetical refinements throughout the movement.
