up for sale is my beloved Minerva Pythagore watch.
It is a very, very rare Model from the Year 2000 Series, very few pieces made it from this series and mine is even more rare because of the caliber 48!
The case is 18 carat full pink gold, also the buckle, the dial is satin with golden indexes and roman numbers.
Movement is the legendary handwound Caliber 48 with the aesthetic perfectionism of the golden ratio.
Here is a great writing from the Year 2000 Model Series, courtesy of the Net:
My watch is even rarer within the Year 2000 Model Series:
Unlike the “normal” Year 2000 watches, mine hasn’t got a central second ( Caliber 49 ), only hours and minutes ( Caliber 48 ) with dauphine hands. I have never seen such an other example, neither in the real and nor on the web!
Condition is good to very good, never polished original condition, very minor light hairline scratches, dial, hands and the sapphire crystals are immaculate, the movement runs well, flawless.
I have only the original box for the watch and the mounted python strap is not for sale!
I am a private person, therefore no warranty, no returns, no exchange!
