That's three nice Angelus watches in that article... FWIW, the piece allegedly made for the Hungarian air force was actually a perfectly civilian model, a batch of which was sold to the Hungarian AF (Legi Er). I've seen the civilian version more than a few times, the only difference is the absence of the L.E. issue markings.

The Angelus 240 is quite a brilliant movement... Good luck on the Panerai project quest, Eddie. Had something of a similar idea once- to get an "orphaned" movement (thought of a Landeron, Venus or Valjoux chrono) and make a looker out of it by putting it in a NOS full stainless steel case. So far, I've been preoccupied by the hunt for 1940s-1950s wristwatches at the flea markets, so the project has been, so to speak, suspended (hopefully not for good).
