Angelus continues to explore the endless possibilities of its diving models. U53 is plunged into a sportsmanlike and contemporary shade of green. Its design and watchmaking vision can only be equaled by its technical features and high-level finishes – remarkable for a timepiece meant for diving in deep water.

Unique Green

From the vast palette of greens, Angelus has chosen a khaki color. Dressed in this green hue are U53's inner rotating flange and its straps, as well as its hands – a strong statement for a diving watch that would be equally at home in town as part of a casual chic look.

Beyond the Norm

U53 meets all the criteria for watches intended for underwater use. Its case is water-resistant to 300 meters. Its 60 minute-graduated rotating flange only turns anticlockwise. Its hands and indices are luminescent. It is equipped with a helium valve, to allow saturation diving. It is also resistant to magnetic fields and scratching: indeed, U53 is made entirely of grade 5 titanium, a light, comfortable metal which is very well tolerated by the skin even in high moisture conditions yet is hard enough to withstand most scratches.

Special Case

What makes this watch’s 46mm case stand out are functions like the helium valve at 9 o’clock. At 2 o'clock, the screw-down crown, which controls the rotating flange. At 4 o'clock, the other screw-down crown for winding and setting the time. Above this ensemble the bezel, with its powerful design, an Angelus signature. Its deep notching, in a distinctive shark fin design, immediately draws the eye. The motif is repeated on the flange, which is also in green and graduated with Arabic numerals.

Distinctive Movement

U53 also stands out among classic types of divers by showcasing its movement in spectacular fashion. The Angelus A-300 is a skeleton caliber characterized by its large bridges. By their openwork in the center, which specifically evokes the design of Angelus’ calibers. By its one-minute flying tourbillon, with its contemporary technicity, and by the slightly asymmetric placement of all its vital components: the barrel at 1 o'clock, winding at 4 o'clock, tourbillon at 6.30, small seconds at 9.30. These unusual locations are dictated by the design of the U53. This diver is a limited edition of 25 pieces, mounted on rubber strap and offered with an extra a hand-stitched NATO strap.
