Minerva for Jacob Rothschild

Very fine Swiss pocket chronograph, around approx. 1910 with high quality Minerva hand-wound calibre, fully functional with new complete service for 400.- Euro.

Perfect enamel dial without hairline cracks, signed as "J. Rothschild & Fils Paris" and below with "swiss"

Jacob Rothschild was the youngest brother. He moved to Paris in 1812 and established Rothschild Freres as one of the first banking addresses, from then on calling himself James de Rothschild. As consultant for two French kings he became one of the most influential bankers of the country. During the following wars under Napoléon III he played one of the most important roles by financing the rail-road construction and the establishment of mines which helped France to overcome the setback of the lost German/French war of 1870/1871 and to become an industrial powerhouse.

The very rare pocket watch comes from the ownership of the Rothschilds

It is in very good collector's condition and was tested by a watch maker to be fully functional. Diameter without crown 49 mm, with crown 65 mm, thickness with glass 15 mm, 86.5 grams

Watch will be shipped well packaged and insured

    Envoi rapide, montre belle et conforme au descriptif. Pas totalement « unworn » (légères marques sur la lunette et le verre) mais rien de grave. Fonctionnement en test mais semble ok! Super!!

    A 1300€ watch, advertised as 'like new' showed some major problems, Seller is not to be trusted and was very unpleasant in his correspondence.
    Catawiki sent me my money back,

    This watch was very cheap, ca. 1500 under its real value, but had a very litle problem, I paid 5,- Euro to my watchmaker to fix it. The seller like to make theater for this. He should be kicked out of Catawiki. Nobody needs such
    querulous persons.
