    My new vintage Doxa - is this dial original?

    I have finally came across this beautiful timepiece and got lucky to win the auction.

    My question is- do you think this dial was repainted? It seems to be a little too pretty for its age.
    The watch is in very good condition overall.

    Congratulations, blackcap, it's a great looking Doxa. I can, unfortunately, not be any help answering your question and doubt (m)any of us can. Maybe ask the same question in the non-SUB section of the Doxa forum. Or ask the mods to move your thread.

    I'll keep an eye on this as now I'm curious too. Regardless of originality, the watch does look great.

    It could honestly just be a watch that was kept/serviced accordingly couldn't it ? Altough I have to admit that the 2nd picture might make it plausible that it might have had some work done. The numbers and the hands so clean though... Perhaps it might have gotten a repaint or something but a few decades ago ? I certainly notice some patina on it, or maybe it's just me.

    Thanks mate. In general the case seems to be also in very decent shape (there are no signs of new chrome). Crown is almost as new, with just few scratches- similar like the case.
    It is possible that the watch was rarely used and kept in some dark and dry place. I looked through the magnifying loupe at hands and dial. There are sligtly visible signs of age + I don't see places where letters are uneven.

    I am so happy about this watch. Finding such an old Doxa in this shape is a luck I guess.
