In 1981 brothers Albert and Gustav Stolz – distinguished watchmakers and former students of Henri Sandoz who was director of the Tavannes Watch Company – establish their Angelus watchmaking manufacture in Le Locle, Switzerland, a city world renowned for high-end watchmaking. They began with just a room on the Rue du Marais, modest beginnings for what would become an important brand.

In 2011 Angelus is bought by Manufacture La Joux-Perret and in 2015 after four years of developing the next generation of Angelus timepieces at its manufacture in La Chaux-de-Fonds, a stone’s throw from the Stolz brothers’ first watchmaking atelier, Angelus unveiled its collection of the 21st century, upholding the brand’s reputation for innovation.
