This is a vintage Angelus Datographe Automatic watch. It is a 14K gold 17 jewel wristwatch. There is a date function at the number 3. From the research I tried to do on this watch, and how slim it is, I believe they referred to it as the Rapier thin automatic calendar version. However this one is gold, making it a rare find.
This watch has a mechanical automatic self winding movement. It is in working condition, except it seems to gain time after a while of running and then stops after sitting for awhile. In addition to the maker and gold markings on the back, there is the number 121 and 18 15 A.
Measurements of this wristwatch are as follows:
34MM - Lug to Lug
26MM - Bezel width excluding the crown. Almost 28MM including the crown.
2.5MM - Thickness from top of glass to back of case.
Condition: It works and runs fast as stated above. There are some minor scratches to the glass face and there is a tiny dent above the l in Angelus on the back. Also some scratches to the area around the back cover where cover has been taken off and on, and maybe a few very small dings around the edge/case. The vintage leather band stamped "Speidel Express / 18 / Genuine Leather" with a black alligator type finish is still supple but does have a worn in bend or two.
