I have mentioned that in the short guide that I've posted in the Links & Articles section.
    Well I learn stuff here all the time.

    We don't get many Doxa watches up here in the north.

    Or they just used a once known brand for marketing reasons.

    Quite possibly Lebolt was just a trademark of Henri Gireaux, not related to the other Lebolt at all. But what all of that is doing in a Gigandet case, is strange- to say the least. Lebolt dial, Gireaux-signed movement, and Gigandet case. Normally I would say "frankenwatch", but there's not nearly enough evidence to say "genuine" or "franken".

    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.

    We have seen similar US constructions before and It's like they ordered everything from catalogs then put the parts together.
