This is a very rare Minerva 140th Anniversary edition watch. These almost never come-up for sale. With Minerva’s highly respected Haute Horlogerie manufacture status under Richemont and Montblanc, this watch has an iconic role in the history of Minerva and the Frey family who guided the manufacture.This watch was purchased as part of a visit to the Minerva factory and an article was written on Timezone about the visit. A printout of the article will be provided with the watch. This watch is a limited edition of 140 watches that celebrated 140 years of Minerva's history from 1858 to 1998. It includes a beautiful New Old Stock midnight blue Minerva alligator band, original Minerva buckle, an extra used tan Minerva alligator strap, boxes, and papers. The watch is in excellent condition and running extremely well, performance measurements are available upon request.

Alligator Straps - International Buyers: For international sales, it is not possible to legally export alligator or crocodile straps from the US or import them into most countries without considerable CITES paperwork and permits. Without proper paperwork, watches can be seized by customs. If you are an international buyer, we will discuss your requirements and alternatives including separate shipment, substituting a high quality matching leather strap or providing a discount so you can purchase a new strap in-country.
