    Doxa parts and service?

    Just won this doxa midsize watch at a online auction.
    Could you guys guide me to a source for parts and service?
    It is said to have missing the second hand and isn't running well.

    Thankx Andreas

    Not sure if I would call that a "Midsize". It looks to be a vintage Sea Maid (Ladies size). It could be an optical illusion with my eyes though and turn out to be a sharkhunter.

    Your best bet is to contact Doxa directly tomorrow through their online chat feature or email. If you are CONUS, you could also call them Toll-free. You can send your newly acquired Doxa to their repair center in Austria that specializes in restoration of vintage Doxas.

    Congrats on your newly acquired vintage Doxa
    Best Regards,
    Jason

    Hi Andreas,

    Welcome to the forum and congratulations on a nice pick up

    When you get the watch serviced, if you run into any problems finding spare parts for the movement just give me a shout. I have a project Nymph and the movement was rusted solid and in finding a new movement I have aquired a load of spares. You are welcome to any you require for the price of a postage stamp

    Cheers

    Simon
    Too many watches

    Ohhhh and a Doxa Sub Conquistador !!!!!!

    Thank you guys.

    The watch is for my wife so even if it's not a midsize it ok.
    The seller said it is 32mm wide without crown.
    So finding a secondhand is possibly you think?
    Can you show me some pictures of a watch like this one in fine condition so
    I can see how the hand would look like?

    I am surprised the seller said that it was 32mm, because it seems smaller than my wife's Yachtmaster that is 29mm. But no matter........If it is for your wife, it will be the PERFECT size.

    Here is a picture of my wife's Doxa Nymph. The hands on your Sea Maid would be different color, but this is the size/shape of the Doxa hands for that model. As far as being able to get parts, if Simon cannot help you with the parts that you need......I feel quite certain that Doxa-Austria can help you out (I have been told that they will cut new crystals for the vintages and everything)

    Alun, congrats on an exceedingly rare find, these ladies Doxa's only come up a few times a year, and are quite sought after. Thanks for sharing the pic with us, please remember to post more once the restoration is complete, and also,

    to the Doxa Forum!
    Regards, T Bone.

    I figured I would chime in and just give you these 2 links from Dr. Pete Millar's site. They at least will give you a little history and show you the hands.

    Welcome to the site and please let us know how it all goes.

    Ok here it is:

    http://www.alun.se/gallery/doxa


    Some times you win and some times you...
    Like this time, this was a 5min before it closes auction and it looks like
    I got what I paid for.

    The case is just fine, back also and crown.
    The bracelet a bit short and say's Doxa sub 300, is that original?
    The hands look handpainted, the dial is just awful.
    I kind of like a bit of wabi but my wife won't.

    So it needs:

    Full movement overhaul: No problem.
    New hands, not likely so easy to come by, right?
    And last but not least a redial.

    So what do you say, is it doable?
