Minerva DH German Military Steel Small Seconds 1940’s Vintage Watch
World War II Minerva German Military Watch with Original Dial/Hands, 34mm DH Stainless Steel Case and 17 Jewel Manual Wind Movement. This type of military watch came with one of two different movements: The Minerva Cal. 12, or the Lavina Caliber 105. Both would have been customized for the application. The cases would also differ, some in all stainless steel (Boden Edelstahl) and others in nickel chrome. Some with screw-backs, others with bayonet backs. The Lavina model cases would also have a dust cover instead of a movement ring, plus “LL” stamped inside the case back, as this stainless steel screw-back does.
