Minerva is a storied Swiss watch manufacturer, famous especially for producing chronograph movements and today part of Montblanc in the Richemont group. The company was originally founded in 1858 as H. & C. Robert in Villeret in the Bernese Jura, the French-speaking area of the Swiss canton of Bern. By 1908 the company was known as Robert Frères Villeret, and began production of chronographs and stopwatches. In 1923 the brand name "Minerva" was introduced, and in 1929 the company was renamed to "Minerva SA, Villeret". In 1934 Minerva SA was taken over by Charles Haussener and Jacques Pelot.
