A better picture: 

A killer. Even the case is very close to the 1858 Tachymeter.

The difference between Minerva and Montblanc is huge. I am a rookie with watches, but fast i recognize the beauty of Minerva. I can not go for a Montblanc or more than one. How easy to do with Minerva. I am looking and searching. Nicolas, is it ok if i ca... 

yeah - the difference is a much better and more refined caliber and with the Montblanc

seriously, I don't get your point of huge difference: the layout of the dial is the same, but the Montblanc Minerva has got the much better engine ...

I keep noticing that there are not too many vintage watches around. Does anyone have a reliable estimate of annual production volumes from the 1930s up until the so-called quartz crisis? Do we find very few of the 1930-1970s watches because production vol...

Ted, go to dive into the Minerva world. I confess it is a bit another world than , what say a Rolex or another road Hublot. Knowing your Blancpain FF BS, it is not far away from Minerva’s roots. Villeret could be not far away from Blancpain HQ. Blancpain ... 

Very true Sire, I just need another brain.
