SERIOUS BUFFING AT HIGH HEAT & PRESSURE IS REQUIRED TO RESTORE WATCH  CASES. THIS RIGOROUS PROCESS INCLUDES THE USE OF SEVERAL TYPES OF ROUGE . ONE HAS TO "FEEL" THE PIECE TO GET IT RIGHT. THAT MEANS USING MY HANDS. WHEN YOU COMBINE THE EXTREME TEMPERATURES AND THE ROUGE,
THE DEPOSITS ON MY HANDS ARE SEMI-PERMANENT.  IT TAKES DAYS TO GET THE ROUGE OUT OF MY HANDS. SO, IF THE PICS OF MY HANDS LOOK "DIRTY", KNOW IT IS DUE TO THE MY HANDS ABSORBING WHAT YOU DO NOT WANT ON YOUR AWESOME RESTORED TIME PIECE!  HAVE A GREAT DAY!.

VINTAGE FANCY ARTSY FRENCH DOXA WATCH ADDS

Long before DOXA became world renown for their dive watches, DOXA produced Fine Pocket Watches and , later, Wrist Watches. Doxa was founded by George Ducommun in 1889. Utilizing FHF Swiss ebauche or their pocket watches, DOXA concentrated on quality. In 1906, DOXA won a series of gold medals. By the late 1920' DOXA had added wrist watches. From 1930 through 1945, DOXA military geared watches, both wrist and pocket , were purchased by both governments and individual soldiers alike. In fact, watches, including the model herein, have been offered with BRITISH GSTP and German DH signing, as well as those with factory military dials and owned by individuals who served in  one of the many armed forces that participated in the war.
