What about this superb Minerva Chronograph, salmon dial?

After the Montblanc Heritage Manufacture Pulsograph I recently reviewed, I wanted to show you something a bit older, which I suspect to be from the Frey's era, before the brand was bought by Gnutti and Co, so before the year 2000.


Here is a Minerva Chronograph Salmon dial. I have no informations about that one, apart that the movement is the Cal 13.20.




Now you see where the inspiration comes from... 

I would bet on a 40 mm case. 

If you have more informations, please share them. 

Best,

Nicolas

Btw looking at the price this watch sold for, it has to be an absolute bargain. :o

I bought this watch (on this site actually) from William Massena. This is from the very short era right after it was sold by Frey and re-imagined by Gnutti and Co. It has basically the same dial as this piece you've shown. I am fairly sure it's a vintage ...  

Beautiful piece [nt]

I have its WG brother. A beauty but I am a bit careful nowadays while I lost a pusher ones and a factory overhaul costs an arm and a leg. I know I have to add a picture, but the watch is in a save now. 🤪. Sorry

Here we go, but an older picture
