A481, Pythagore, Steel
A swan song to the final years of Minerva’s independence, the Pythagore is one of very few remaining hidden gems of the neo-vintage era and the definition of a cult watch. It features its own calibre, the 48, with bridges designed in such a way that they adhere to Pythagoras’ Golden Ratio. Everything you see in its sapphire caseback is positioned at 0, 45, or 90 degrees and in the appropriate size to maintain that ratio. This example also sports a desirable vertically brushed sector dial and blued steel handset.
