I mainly post over on the DOXA forum as I am afraid I have turned into somewhat of a Vintage Doxa Sub nut.
Before I started with wristwatches and then vintage DOXA sub's I collected Pocket Watches. I have had these stored for two years so I thought I would share them with you and a couple of close ups of my favourites.
I know they are not worth much but I still love them and enjoy giving them a polish and a wind. There is nothing quite like the sound of 10 pocket watches ticking away it also drives my wife nuts
I have a few more secreted away but they are mainly non-runners and in need of work.
ROLEX (my most expensive one)
I had to have this one as I absolutely love the dial on it plus its the only chance I will have of owning a ROLEX.
No 1 MOVEMENT (my prize one)
This was my horologists pride and joy and it took me ages to pry it away from him, I love the fact that its someones first ever watch they made.
WALTHAM (my first pocket watch)
I picked this up at a local auction for £20 a few years back and its probably responsible for this WIS bug.
PRIDHAM (my favourite movement)
I love the engraving on this movement, it was disgusting when I got it but my horologist worked wonders but sadly the chain snapped about two months after its service and we have yet to find a replacement so its a non runner.
