    Angelus’s first diver’s watch makes a spectacular debut with a tourbillon escapement and skeletonized movement. The U50 Diver Tourbillon is also equipped with a helium escape valve, making it safe for saturation dives of up to 300 metres. The movement was designed from scratch to be skeletonized, with rigid, beam-style bridges and wheels and barrel firmly secured between two plates. A proprietary six-spoke design reinforces the wheel train and protects the skeletonized ratchet and barrel. The openworked display is made legible by a contrasting blue and yellow lacquered flange ring and hands, with Super-LumiNova in the middle of the hands. There are two crowns, one at 4 o’clock for winding and setting, and the other at 2 o’clock to rotate the unidirectional flange ring, enabling divers to time their descent.
