    1940's Doxa, New Arrival







    Movement photo is from seller. Everything is original except the band.

    Cool--that box isn't from the 40's, right?

    I think it could be, but I don't know. It's falling apart like it is from the 40's.

    Nice little handwind Doxa. The overall style and movement with incabloc shock absorption all appear to be of later vintage. I would guess 1960's.

    If I could figure out the movement I would be able to get a more approximate date. Well if it was manufactured in the 60's that would disprove the rumor that Doxa watches can be dated by the serial number on the back case.

    Yes the dial is original to the best of my knowledge. The seller believed also, but that has to be taken with a grain of salt.

    What is the diameter of the movement in mm?

    Try to get to the closest 0.1mm.


    It appears to be something from the ETA 2410 family

    Send an email to Roland Ranfft either through this website or his and include a picture of the movement. I had not heard of a number dating scheme for Doxa watches. I try to look at case, dial and hand style as well as the movement for clues about age.

    My favorite Doxa is the 1950's Grafic.

    That would be the movement. I thought it was an ETA, but I was looking on Dr. Ranfft's site and didn't see it. Thank you for the link.
