What's up guys, I was given one of my grandfathers watches and was wondering if someone may possibly know the model, or could tell me a little bit about it. A few things I've noticed:
1. Minerva is written in all print on the face.
2. The case back is blank, possibly replaced?
3. Speidel band - I'm assuming this was put on post-purchase.

Attached are some pictures, thank you.

@wwaren thank you, will do.
@imitationoflife one step ahead of you, minus the movement photo - cant see to get the caseback off.

A Minerva full calendar chronograph with a Valjoux 72C, a rare wristwatch with 30 min. and 12h counter and full calendar, there was another with an additional moon phase window.

Movmemt should feature iirc: 2/3 plate movement, rhodium-plated, ground, polished screws, finely ground chronograph steel parts, ratchet wheel, Glucydur screw balance, blued (heated) hairspring...

Not sure the hands are authentical.
