    Doxa 50th Anniversary "Black Lung" serial number - Where is it?

    I purchased a Black Lung re-issue on the secondary market. The watch was sold without papers so there was no documentation identifying the serial#. I cannot find a serial number anywhere on the case set. Is it located on the inside of the caseback?

    Serial number XXX/300 should appear on the case back as shown below. Below and to the right of the DOXA sailing boat, and under SWISS MADE.

    (Yes - it's still in its plastic wrapping... )

    There were some 'internal use' watches sold (about 5, I think, or there may be more) which were not numbered /300. However, I think those bore a number such as 'internal use XX'

    Cheers!

    Im a little concerned, I purchased the watch on StockX and I want to notify them if there is an issue. My caseback has no serial#.

    I should add that the watch came with the warranty card below.

    I think that StockX did sell off a small number of non serial Black Lung watches from Doxa that were not part of the initial 300 offer. Given that your original Doxa Warranty Card also appears to show no serial number my guess is that yours is likely to be one of this very small number: https://stockx.com/news/doxa-black-lung-restockx/

    It looks like one of the 'internal use' Black Lung watches from DOXA sold via StockX. It would seem that some of these were unnumbered. (There were also some preproduction SUB 1200T Professional NUMA turquoise watches sold via Crown & Caliber, which I believe were unnumbered).

    Doxa 50th Anniversary "Black Lung" serial number - Where is it?

    Just thinking aloud, the fact that it is definitely a SUB300 case-back but without a serial number just below where it says DOXA suggests that it was never issued.
    I'd have been more concerned if there was a case number in that position or one mentioned on the Doxa Warranty Card.
    All told I'd say that it looks like one of the 5 that were sold through StockX - congratulations on a very rare piece!

    Come on let's get those wrappers off before it becomes a safe-queen! You might even look at moving on the COSC Divingstar once you start wearing the Black Lung :)

    Thanks very much to everyone who responded! Maybe I have lucked out on receiving one of the 5 unnumbered watches? I have contacted both Doxa and StockX via their Customer Service web pages to inquire about the watch and will update this thread when/if I receive their reply.
