    It seems to be a pocket watch that had lugs attached to it to make it viable as a wrist watch.

    It appears to be based on DOXA's 8-DAY movement.

    Unfortunately, beyond that there is not a ton of information in our archives to go back to owing to a particularly nasty flood back in the early 1970s.

    Enjoy it!!!

    Hi, and Welcome to the Doxa Forum!

    This watch type comes up now and then, and according to a poster from earlier this year, is what is referred to by collectors as a "marriage" watch. It is a pocket watch which has had lugs added, thus is modified and not original (not factory produced as such). I've seen some claim they were original and were military issue as shown, but I've found nothing to substantiate those claims.

    They still can be an interesting addition to a collection. For more information on marriage watches, try doing an advanced search (from the menu above the forum page) on marriage watch. You might also try a Google search on the same.
    Regards, T Bone.
