Well, indeed.. A really nice Chrono, although in general I like dials with a bit more contrast, although on the 3rd shot in the palm, that also looks very much ok !..
Just on the first 2 pics light appears to influence this differently.
This, however, should in no way "belittle" this piece..
Its patinated appeal & the design lines are obviously carrying
enough DNA to reach up for today..
Thx for sharing.. One more in the box for the Nordic "No Chrono Boy" !

The Swedish connection and history....

Blue hands + patina
is a killer combo. I am very much a fan of this. Thanks for sharing my friend!
I love your vintage Minerva chronograph Blomman!
a PuristS watch indeed! The patina on the dial is to die for. Even a non vintage guy like me can see how beautiful the patina color is on this dial :) Thanks for the lovely post. I will show to the Montblanc Villeret watchmaker and see if he can find answ...
Thank you, Robin - a pleasure to finally be a part of this great Montblac forum! Best Blomman
It's always fun to read about historical pieces; and especially meaningful ones to the writer. And chronographs are always great to look at.
Thank you, Padj! :)
Yes, the history adds the "little extra" to this sweet chrono! Best Blomman
