Minerva Dress Watch Ref. 48772

This watch is way more than its astonishing looks!

As Minerva is relatively unknown, we will provide a little background information about the brand. The brand Minerva dates back to 1858 when it was founded in Villeret, Switzerland. For the largest part of the brand’s history, they created their own calibres.

This specific Minerva features the legendary calibre 48 hand-winding movement, which was created all the way back in 1943.

What makes this movement so legendary, though, is its incredible looks. Andre Frey designed this beauty and he followed the so-called Golden Ratio studied by — you guessed it — Pythagoras. As such, everything you see in the movement is at 0, 45, or 90 degrees.

We love to tell you all about it at Reestraat 3 Amsterdam!
