Secure Payments By
Antique Doxa pocket watch probably made made for the German market. The watch has a stem-winding movement which is working nicely. The movement is signed with the Doxa name. Doxa was (and still is) an independent Swiss company, founded in 1889 by Georges Ducommon who started his watch making apprenticeship at the age of just 12 years old. Doxa was a well respected company famous for their diver's watches but they also supplied both the British and German military with high spec watches. The regulator is marked F and S for Fast and Slow but is also, more unusually, marked V and N for Vorrücken and Nachlassen which indicates that the watch was probably made for the German market. The movement is protected by an inner hinged cover which is signed with the Doxa name and has details of various exhibition medals won in Liege in 1905 and Milan in 1906. The watch measures 54mm diameter excluding the winding stem and the loop. The case is white metal and it is in lovely condition. The inside of the back cover is also signed with the Doxa logo. The acrylic lens is in lovely condition. The signed dial is in lovely condition with original hands, a subsidiary seconds dial and outer minute markers. The watch comes in a new presentation box.
