    A vintage Doxa watch

    Hello,
    I need your help. I think it's a Doxa --- Chateau des Monts --- circa 1920s' or 1930s' but am not sure.
    The back case is not original. What do you think?
    Many thanks....

    Thank you for the reply. I am not sure you are right. I have the replica: limited edition DOXA - Chateau des Monts, 2009. The watch is recreation of the classic 1920s Doxa design. The case, the crown and the movement are the same. I am looking for a photo of the original Chateau des Monts for comparison.

    Dial, case and movement looks legit to me, but I think the plexi caseback is not original and has been added at a later time.

    Also I think the built Year is later as Men´s Wristwatches in the 1920´s where pretty scarce at this time and mostly limited to Military or Special purpose watches.

    In the 1920´s for Ladies pretty small wristwatches where in fashion but the real Gentlemen mostly used a pocket watch.

    Regards Bernie

    Thank you for your answer. I totally agree with you. The case back is not original and I am looking for one. The case back is what makes the watch so unique. The information on 1920s' I got from the following links:

    Doxa Château des Monts Limited Edition Watch - AskMen

    or

    Swisstime - DOXA - Château des Monts Limited Edition

    I have the replica, limited edition, ivory dial. I am quite sure that I have the original wach from the (late) 1920s but didn't find a photo yet in order to compare.

    Many thanks,
    Gur
