    Franken Doxa

    I bought this watch today at the flea market, aware that its not real. I had the guy open it for me and inside is indeed a mechanical movement (which I didnt reckognise) on which it says only 17 jewels seventeen and below the bridge is a thick cross inside the shield.
    Notice that it says ANTIMAGNETIC x 2.

    Re: Franken Doxa

    Especially that you were aware of it being a fake/franken, what was the point of buying it?

    Can't even tell you what movement it has, and if the movement and case at least have anything to do with Doxa- without pictures of the case back (both sides) and the movement, it's impossible to say even as much as what this watch used to be.

    Re: Franken Doxa

    I got it for next to nothing and I bought it just to show it here. I believe it is good to show variations of fake watches, so the people who dont know much about watches(like myself) have heads up in suspicious buys.
    I dont know how to open it.
    When I get it open I will post photos.
    I know the inner side of back cover had lots of writing and it wrote Tissot as well, which I pointed out to him.

    Re: Franken Doxa

    Given that there is no serial number outside, the case is neither by Doxa, nor was it made for Doxa.

    I own couple of doxas. Lack of serial number was first red flag for me.
