    Help Identify This Minerva

    What's up guys, I was given one of my grandfathers watches and was wondering if someone may possibly know the model, or could tell me a little bit about it. A few things I've noticed:
    1. Minerva is written in all print on the face.
    2. The case back is blank, possibly replaced?
    3. Speidel band - I'm assuming this was put on post-purchase.

    Attached are some pictures, thank you.

    Better yet, post in the vintage forum with a movement photo.

    @wwaren thank you, will do.
    @imitationoflife one step ahead of you, minus the movement photo - cant see to get the caseback off.

    A Minerva full calendar chronograph with a Valjoux 72C, a rare wristwatch with 30 min. and 12h counter and full calendar, there was another with an additional moon phase window.

    Movmemt should feature iirc: 2/3 plate movement, rhodium-plated, ground, polished screws, finely ground chronograph steel parts, ratchet wheel, Glucydur screw balance, blued (heated) hairspring...

    Not sure the hands are authentical.
    Kind regards
