    Opinions needed on UG compax

    Saw this watch and wanted some opinions. I have an idea what you may say but want to hear it first as not to influence anyone. Thanks in advance

    Nice color pink gold. Is that what you thought we would say?

    Looking at the non-shockproof movement and the 1960s font on the dial (on top of that, the font looks fuzzy), I have quite a few doubts about the authenticity of this one. The serial number is gone from the case back - something stinks here. Apart from being a redial, the whole bloody thing could well be a franken. Oh, and the crown is an incorrect replacement.

    For any inquiries regarding vintage Doxa watches, please read the highlighted text in my vintage Doxa thread. Sorry, but I will not respond to PMs on the matter.

    Thanks everyone. Shows you how much I know/don’t know, I thought the dial was good but the hands were wrong. Not sure about the missing number on the case. Why is that suspicious? The inside of case back is stamped. What a minefield vintage watches are

    I think I’ll just stay away from vintage watches for a while

    Woohoo, more for me!

    No, seriously, just keep posting and we'll keep picking them apart. You'll learn and you'll find something good.

    It’s so frustrating. Just when you think you’ve figured it out, it bites back hard.

    Just picked up a very similar Uni-Compax on eBay for less than half of what is being asked for that watch:



    Not a perfect example, but the movement is excellent condition.



    There are bargains out there, just have to know where to look.
