    Roxy

    This came today - delivered by our new postman.



    Very yellowed crystal which has now been replaced:



    The 34mm case has very worn chrome plating - nearly all gone - but its running fine. Inside:



    which is an Arogno 260 bidfun-db Archive: Watch Movements: Arogno 260 - or from that series.

    Now, I already have a Roxy



    but its not the same as its 100% German (movement and case). My 'new' one is decidedly Swiss and the logo is quite different.

    Mikrolisk gives a couple of possibilities Mikrolisk - The horological trade mark index - Das Informationsportal über Taschenuhren mit der riesigen Handelsmarken-Datenbank der Uhrmacherei but doesn't have the logo.

    So if anyone has any Swiss-made Roxy information I'd be pleased to hear it.

    Sorry Marrick, I've not gotten any further than you regarding your Roxy, and can't add anything at the moment. Searching over here is clouded constantly by the fact there's another ROXY, a brand of Quicksilver, which seems to have appeared in the early 1990's and is quite common in France.

    Re: Roxy

    Thank you!

    This is the German Roxy trademark - as on the first 3 of those above:

    Mikrolisk Mikrolisk - The horological trade mark index - Das Informationsportal über Taschenuhren mit der riesigen Handelsmarken-Datenbank der Uhrmacherei gives a US company, Rosen and Steinberg, as having registered the Roxy TM in 1927. And a Roxy SA in Switzerland also in 1927 as well as Dux SA / N. Praz / Ipo SA and Eigeldinger & Co. SA in Switzerland for 1946.

    I have found a reference to Roxy Watch Co., 12 John Street, New York City from 1939 and I think the bottom 2 examples you found are probably theirs - the fonts in the name look identical and 'watch co.' tends to be American.

    Anyway, not to worry - its just curiosity.
