FS: Minerva Mercure Cal 52 Chronograph

Hey guys,

I'd like to offer something really rare from the manufactory of Minerva, a Mercure chronograph with calibre 52. Mercure was the economy line of Minerva and they used the new designed calibre 52 in this watch. As you can see this movement is a bit special, since Minerva tried to reduce the amount of chronograph wheels as much as possible. The movement was introduced in 1944 and thats around the time, I would date the whole watch.

Case: Case is in very good shape, all edges are factory sharp. Case is chrome plated, size is 35mm and lug size is 18mm.

Dial and hands: Dial is in very good shape with same marks on the outer tachy scale. I like the detail of the 45min on the right counter a lot. It pops :D. Geiger counter beeps a lot, so dial is radium for sure, hands could be relumed with Tritium in the past, since under UV they glow more than the numbers on the dial. The hands are wonderfull blued, nice to see in sunlight.

Movement: Movement is running and holding time. Chronograph starts and stopps. Also resets, perfectly to 12.

I'd like to ask 1.500€.

Cheers Nico
