1950’s Doxa Antimagnetique…
Yes, I owned 3 vintage Doxa several years ago lol !
But for some reason I wasn’t confident enough to call
this one, though it appears to say so on the dial……..my
age & failing eyesight to blame !
I have a soft spot for doxa watches, so I recognize them anywhere I see them 🙂 I have one that closely resembles the one in the photo
Doxa was a brand favoured by German officers & scientists in WWII. The latter because of their anti-magnetic properties. Prices for them have steadily increased…..my 3 were relatively inexpensive….maybe modern Doxa dive watches have put the brand on the map again, so to speak. Jacques Cousteau was often seen wearing a Rolex Submariner , but his favourite watch was his Doxa Shark Hunter……….I sold my pieces in the hope I would get one like Helmut Dantine wears in Operation Crossbow…see my submission to site. Never quite found one in the same style of case , & especially with that lovely second hand too lol !
Mine are inexpensive too, I guess…but I have lots of them, about 24 different models from the 1930’s to the 1990’s (told you I have a soft spot for this brand 🙂 ). Each and every one of them has something special, at least for me :). As for the Doxa featured in “Operation Crossbow”, you’re right, I have never seen that case style
The one I favor most of all is a 1940’s pointer-date model with two-tone dial…it is a real beauty
Ooooh yes , & their triple date chronographs ! You know the
saying……” If you need to know the price, you can not afford it ” lol !
