    Doxa symbol - meaning?

    I can't for the life of me figure out what the art on the case back of the watch, and the band, is supposed to represent. To me, it looks like a fish which has been sliced open, and a circle coming out of the body. What is it supposed to be?

    Hi Bellbrass,

    The symbol is a stylized J for Jenny, which is the family that owns the DOXA brand. They an old Swiss watchmaking family who made cases for many watch companies in the past, including DOXA dive watches in the 1960's. You may also see the symbol on Caribbean 1000 watches from various companies. All of those cases were made by the Jenny's also.

    Cheers,
    DOXA forum administator 1

    Thanks! I had wondered...it looks cool, and the history is good to know. My Submariner has a rather boring case back, so the DOXA subs look appealing.
