A collectible vintage DOXA pocket watch is now available in our Vintage Radar collection, and this piece is over a century old! This silver Doxa pocket watch comes with a large dial of 67mm, and the following features:
The dial background/display has been replaced with a piece by SLAVA, made in the former Soviet Union, as you can notice on the lower part of the dial it is written: "Made in USSR". However, keep in mind that this is not the original display.
The pocket watch was made by the Swiss watch manufacturer DOXA. The back of the dial case can be opened and the following text is engraved on the right facet:
"Medaille d'or Milan 1906 DOXA HORS CONCOURS LIEGE 1905"
From this, we understand that the watch is over 100 years old and it was probably part of a competition in Milan.
On the other facet, the watch has a Doxa stamp engraved, reading: Metal Argentan Doxa Depose. You can also find a serial number: 761585.
The watch is made of silver and it is a heavy, large piece. With over 100 years of timekeeping, this watch is a collector's dream! If you need further information or photos of the watch, contact us and we're happy to help.

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.

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.
