Checking this movement-what do you think?

Looks like a 17-29 to me.
Cross checking with a picture posted by Nico 4 years ago-fist picture is the movement. Second from one of Nico’s posts on the 17-29
No branding on the bridges but that was normal for the time. There’s a tiny branding on the edge close to the column wheel

Thanks for checking!

It's a Minerva 19-09CH - crown pusher and 6-pillared column wheel

Couldn't find many photos of the movement online, but here's one from Robb Report for reference: Regards, skyeriding ...  

Looks right. Thanks for the clarification skydiver!

Do you have a beautiful Minerva you want to share? What are you wearing today?

You are certainly right about that fact.

Lots of cudos to MB for keeping the tradition and the machinery going in Villeret.
