For sale a Minerva chronograph with a Valjoux 72 movement and decimal dial
Size: 36mm without crown
Box and papers: Only the watch with a nice generic mesh strap
Movement: Valjoux 72
Dial: Dial is a lovely decimal dial with nice patina on the lume (short glow after being exposed to UV). There is some spotting on the dial edge (see pictures).
Case: Nice fat case with very sharp edges.
Hands: The hands are the correct blue anodized hands, however they seem to be relumed in the past. The color is green and they react different to UV then the dial, however matching the colour to the dial won’t cost you very much (approx. €50-70)
Movement: Runs and winds smooth, no jumpstart on the chrono. All buttons working properly. Service history unknown so no warranty on the functioning.
Bracelet: Mesh strap unbranded.
The watch is triple signed: dial, caseback (both in and outside) and also on the movement.
Shipped fully insured worldwide.
No returns please ask questions and extra pictures in advance.
