About DOXA watches
Doxa is a Swiss watch manufacturer that was founded in 1889. "Doxa” – the Greek word for glory, and by extension for reputation – was known for exquisite timepieces of exceptional workmanship, quality, and value. We are proud to host a Doxa pocket watch in our vintage collection. If you are interested to know more about the history of the brand, you can read about it here.
The history of pocket watches is long and interesting. Starting out as pieces of art, featuring beautiful enamel paintings, pocket watches were not so accurate at telling the time in their beginnings. Pocket watches were also owned by the rich families and were often passed on from father to son. Their popularity grew over the years, especially during the two World Wars, when having a pocket watch as a soldier was something common.
Although nowadays pocket watches are no longer so frequently used, they still have beautiful, timeless design qualities that cannot be replaced by wristwatches. And every now and again, a pocket watch is just the accessory you need to make an impression: a wedding, a party, a formal occasion, etc. Many of our pocket watches are tiny pieces that can be worn as medallions/pendants as well.
Personalize/engrave your pocket watch
A selection of our pocket watches can be engraved. If the engraving option is available, please select it before adding the watch to your shopping cart.
Keep an eye on your e-mail address, as we will contact you as soon as possible regarding the message you would like engraved on the watch.
