Doxa is a brand of Swiss watches maybe best known for their brightly coloured diving watches, appreciated by collectors and considerably more expensive than dress watches of the same brand.
Vintage dress watches by Doxa are still affordable but expected to go up in value as they are gaining momentum among the community of collectors and hence getting increasingly hard to find.
This Doxa has a stunning white/silver/silk dial with a very fine radial texture. Apart from a tiny dot close to the 2 o clock marker it is spotless.
The gold hands and applied hour markers are perfect. The gold plated case is showing minimal signs of wear and is in very good condition.
The crown is unsigned. The case back has an inscription, which gives a bit of history to this watch. Crystal is scratch-free.
The calibre 103 manual movement which is based on the ETA 2391 is clean and it is keeping good time. It ticks 18,000 times per hour. The winding action is great. This is a vintage watch and while it has passed our testing, it must be taken into account that it is a vintage watch and its performance is not to be compared to modern quartz watches.
This watch comes fitted on a black leather strap and comes packed in a high-quality German made travel case together with a a certificate of authenticity from Arlington watches.
