Why We Love it

Minerva: goddess of wisdom, sponsor of arts and trade. While many who go into business might choose a name from mythology for their companies, we think the Robert brothers—Charles and Hyppolite—could not have chosen a better goddess to name their company after. They went into business in 1858 under H & C Robert of Villeret, but by the 1920s they adopted the name by which their company would forever be known.

The quality of their work—much of it gilded by hand, with the bridges in adventurous shapes according to the strictures of the Golden Section—attracted the praise and admiration of consumers throughout Europe. After the death of the brothers, the company passed into the hands of another family, the Freys, who ran it from 1935 until 2000.

Although Minerva’s later history was marred by constant changeovers, it’s now under new and inspired leadership that the company has enjoyed new life as a subsidiary of Montblanc.

But it’s their vintage watches like this one that speak for the care and attention with which the Roberts and the Freys imbued every single one of their creations.

Despite its humble 35.5mm diameter, it doesn’t disappear on the wrist, thanks to the long faceted lugs. The elegant silver dial, stippled with patina, speaks to the years it’s seen. On a brown leather strap, it radiates with an understated charm that we find simply irresistible.
