year old craftsman Georges Ducommun. Ducommun created high quality pocket watches often
with fine luxury hand-decoration. Eventually, Doxa progressed to award-winning
1908, Doxa patented an 8-day watch movement for aviation and motor cars. In fact, Bugatti would use the Doxa 8-day movement instrument in the iconic Type 35 Bugatti.
When Georges Ducommun died in 1936, Jacques Nardin, son-in-law of Georges Ducommun, took over DOXA.
