    DOXA Question

    I was informed that the DOXA record were destroyed in 1960. Because my watch is older, by far, thy could not give me any information about it.

    Is there anyone here who has an idea where I should seek information?

    Many thanks.

    My watch:

    Doxa
    Pocket watch
    Silver, 2 3/4 inches diameter
    White face with roman numerals (black)
    "Anti Magnetique"
    "DOXA"
    Back cover:
    Two miners in a mine.
    Inside back cover:
    "MEDAILLE D'OR MILAN 1906"
    <five medals> (depicted)
    DOXA
    "HORS CONCOURS"
    "LIEGE 1905"
    :thanks

    Hi SJLTIME, and Welcome to the Doxa Forum!

    There's still a possibility that someone from Doxa may have some knowledge they'll impart about your watch, also possible that another member here may have something to offer. I've got one of these myself, though I've never really researched it's age thoroughly.

    Another place that might help is the WUS Vintage/Pocket Watch Forum. Many knowledgable folks frequent that Forum. Either way, a picture or two is bound to be helpful also, as the dials, fonts, hands, etc. varied greatly on these older Doxa pocket watches.

    Best of luck, I hope you get some results.
    Regards, T Bone.

    If you kept an eye out for Doxas on EBay you'd think Doxa made a zillion of those pocket watches. They usually show up with the dials repainted with erotic themes. Some of them are quite creative.

    Thanks T Bone and Bo, Will attempt to iclude a picture. My watch was given to my maternal grandfather upon his retirement, late in the 1800s or very early in 1900s. It is original.

    Unless the watchmakers at Doxa were clairvoyant I think you can rule out manufacture prior to 1906.

    The inscription on your case back is a tribute to the five gold medals Doxa won at the Exposition Internationale de Milan (Italy) in 1905 (Medaille D'or Milan), and the Hors Concours (beyond competition) award at the Exposition in Liege (Belgium) in 1905.

    Those inscriptions were used on Doxa pocket watches well into the 1920s. After 1925 Doxa added another inscription: Membre Du Jury Paris - 1925, which was used until WWII.
