The watch has a Minerva movement, calibre 9CH, which is working nicely. The movement was in production from 1908, and we would date this particular watch to circa 1920. The movement is protected by an inner hinged cover. The watch measures 50mm diameter excluding the winding stem and the loop. The case is nickel and it is in good condition with just general light surface marks. The acrylic lens is in good condition. The dial looks in super condition to the naked eye. There is in fact a hairline crack at number 10 but it is just about visible with a magnifying loupe so very faint. The chronograph is started by pressing the button on top of the winding crown, pressing again to stop and then again to re-set to zero. The dial has the 30 minute register at 12 o'clock and constant seconds at 6 o'clock. The chronograph hand is slightly out of the shape but not too noticeable at all. The watch comes in a new presentation box. ALL OF OUR PRICES INCLUDE UK AND WORLDWIDE POSTAGE. All of our watches are checked over before listing, and are also checked for accuracy which is usually within around +/- two to three minutes over 24 hours (unless otherwise stated), which is considered respectable for a vintage watch.
