Nice find! Wish we had a market like that here.
Where's the market in NZ ?
Everytime i see you buying these market watches it makes me think i need to get out of bed early and get off my ass and go to some local markets here for a gander..

Chronographs - July 1972 Seiko 6139-6005 (True Pogue).
Hartmut our local engine guru will probably correct me,but the movement looks like an eta 1080 with bridge modifications.
Great score for the price,straps worth that imo.

It is an ETA 1080 with a modified bridge, Doxa was known for using it. The Shock-Resist device is a bit of an unusual thing to find in a Doxa, so this makes this piece slightly more collectible than typical Doxa watches of this period. The watch itself dates to 1947.

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.
Nice job! How did you clean the dial?
