Are pocket timers from the forties/fifties at all interesting? We think so, when the quality is present, and something special adds to the basics. The crowned gold emblem fixed to the back is that special add-on in this case. The dial is pristine as are the blued steel hands. The high frequency signed movement appears to be nearly untouched. There are two dents on the back though. 50,7 diameter, inside back cover signed Minerva Watches.
