Minerva watch company was founded in 1858 by Charles-Yvan Robert and Hyppolite Robert of Villeret, who built the company that would eventually become the Minerva Watch brand in 1887. In 1902, under the leadership of C. Robert's sons, Charles-Auguste and Georges-Louis, Minerva became a manufacturer of watches in their own engineering workshops.

In 1901, The earliest Minerva wristwatch was manufactured, but the watch company's greatest success came in 1923 with the introduction the No. 20, a caliber timepiece that perfectly illustrates the classic and refined architecture of wrist chronographs of that era, with a column-wheel mechanism, a Breguet balance-spring and 17 jewels. With the launch of this prestigious watch, the company earned its reputation as a manufacturer of complicated movements of exceptional quality, and the rest is history.

Minerva was responsible In 1936 for time-keeping in the 1936 Winter Olympics in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, and in the years after WWII, the Minerva watch company developed a full range of mechanical movements, notably the movements made by Ebauches S.A.

DURING WWII, MINERVA SUPPLIED WATCHES TO MANY GOVERNMENTS. THE GERMAN WAR DEPARTMENT INVESTED IN THOUSANDS OF MINERVA WATCHES AND TIMERS.

UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE all watches offered by GSW have been SERVICED. Some required REPAIR AND RESTORATION! Normal Servicing of Mechanical Watches by an EXPERT PROFESSIONAL will run between $180.00 to 580.00, depending on the complication of the movement and that is WITHOUT parts that may be required. SERVICING means DISASSEMBLING THE ENTIRE WATCH AND MOVEMENT, CLEANING SAME, OILING, LUBING AND REASSEMBLING, timing and Sealing. RESTORATION is a separate service from SERVICING and may include CRYSTAL, DIAL, HANDS, CASE, LUGS and BAND. So, WHEN YOU VIEW VINTAGE AND CLASSIC WATCHES OFFERED BY OTHER VENDORS/DEALERS, the question is: WAS THE WATCH SERVICED?
