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.
