In addition, we request that sellers linking to online auctions or listings offer some benefit or accomodation to ChronoTrader readers (for example, some discount or an undertaking to end an auction early, to keep a watch "in the family"). Photos must be of the actual item for sale in its present condition. No counterfeit or replica products. No post for the same item may be repeated within 7 days, except to lower the asking price.

For Sale! Amazing vintage 1950s Angelus Chronodato with rare tan/black dial variant! Beautiful patina, unpolished, and just back from the watchmaker who serviced the in-house Angelus Cal. 217 movement.
I buy and collect vintage pieces that I think are aesthetically special, and this certainly qualifies. At 38mm, the solid stainless steel case has significant wrist presence. Pairing it with a yellow/tan strap brings out the warmth in the original radium lume.
You will notice some scratching throughout, but the case retains its sharp corners and detailing.
I have a decade of references on ChronoTrader, WatchUSeek, TimeZone and eBay (secretsquirrel72). I’ve started a new Instagram for my vintage watches @lavintagewatch. Los Angeles Based.
I offer a three day inspection period: once you receive the watch, you have three days to check it out, enjoy it. You can contact me at any time in those three days and return it--for any reason--in the same way that it was shipped to you. I'll inspect it on receipt and if everything's the same as when I sent it, you'll get an immediate refund minus any shipping costs or payment fees I incurred.
