    Well, Minerva might have been able to help with the serial number - if they were still around and allowed to make watches! Unhappily, they have been conscripted into making movements for a pen pushing company that knows little about making time pieces.

    Your watch is probably from the twenties or thirties and has a Minerva Cal. 9:

    Who said that? Hartmut was referring to the present status of Minerva. Its a very good watch which many collectors would like to own.

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    Oh, the watch is collectible. Casing, dial and movement appear to be in good condition. Someone would love to have it. But I suspect few are just dying to get one...

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    I was just thinking of saying that I was at a real computer not on a phone.
