Minerva is a historic manufacture, and a brand most famous for producing chronograph movements (and for other brands as well) and today is part of Montblanc in the Richemont group.
This example, a Minerva Ref. VD 712, is in exceptional and mint condition, with a spotless and rare “decimal” white, 3-register dial. The original lume in the markers and hands have aged to a breathtaking orange patina. The case is unpolished and still very sharp.
Minerva is an underrated brand that has seen a huge uptick in interest amongst collectors lately, and represent huge value in the chronograph market.
