    Doxa pocket watch..

    Hi, I am trying to determine the age of a Doxa pocket watch that has been handed down through my family. please understand I am not interested in the value of this watch, just the age. I am hoping that someone can help me here. I am unable to find a movement number on the movement.

    thank you for your time.

    the numbers on the inside of the case are
    (presumably case number) 1057737
    18 29
    and there are the words
    metal agenta
    and of course, Doxa.

    I would really appreciate any information about the age of this watch. I plan on handing it down to my eldest son, when the time is right, and would like to hand down what I know as well. (or what I can find out.)

    My family is swiss, and I believe (at this stage that my grandfather? or his father) was given it as a wedding present.

    thank you

    Heidi

    Re: Doxa pocket watch..

    I've looked at a few antique Doxa pocket watches before, and there are quite a lot of "hors concours" inscriptions on the ones I've seen. Most seller list the production to be on or around the 1905-6 (?) inscription date on the medallion. I'm not an expert, just relating what I have seen. I'd love to hear from someone more knowledgeable on the subject. :) Love the detailing on these vintage pocket watches. :)
