    Something from the 30's or 40's? Pics of the movement would help alot!

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    There aren't too many chronographs with that layout. I would think it's a Venus Cal. 140. Here's another one:

    On many Doxa watches from this era the first two digits of the serial number are the last two digits of the year. Ie, 40xxxxx would be from 1940. I don't know when that started though but I've had a few watches from the forties where this was the case. Ask the seller if he knows the serial number.

    Those oval pushers are typical more for 1930s then for 1940s.
