Two treasures from the Past. Vintage Minerva Chronograph, Cal 19-9.

Oversized with their 45 / 46 mm case, charming with their enamel dials, and uber interesting with their Cal 19-9. 

Here are two pictures: 

And here, an extract about their movement: 

I am totally mad about these vintage giants.

The first one does look like a "converted" pocket watch.

Treasures which never bore

That said, the brand is real purist. Never seen them in flesh, but hey time will tell. The brand is diverse too with many case sizes, dial layouts, complications, and more. Collecting is a sport, especially Minerva.

Thanks, Weems.

These are such rare birds. I hope one day I will be able to see one of them in the metal.

And me to own one! :)
