I think I originally posted this on the wrong board, the guys over at DOXA are more of a dive board. I think this may be a more appropriate venue.
I'm popping into this corner of WUS hoping that you can help me identify a vintage DOXA that's been in my family for quite some time. The watch you see below was gifted to my grandfather (dob: 1925) by his grandmother. I suspect this 22mm gem may be pre 1900's!
My mother informed that she no longer has the crystal. However, she told me that it was cracked and therefore kept alongside the watch for as long as she can remember.
Case back reads D.800 9927, does this imply the date of manufacture was 1899? I read somewhere the first two digits are the year code.
Very curious to know more! this one is going in that unused slot in my watch box.
