Why We Love it

DOXA's tool watches, particularly of the dive variety, have started to gain a following among collectors in recent years. We here at analog/shift have certainly carried the torch for DOXA's dive watches, and over the years have stocked our inventory (and shamelessly collected for ourselves) exceptional examples of their Sub 300s from the 1960s and 1970s. But while it's DOXA's dive watches that get the most attention, our love for the brand encompasses their whole range of products, rich with impressive timepieces dating to the company's founding.

In 1889, Georges Ducommun founded DOXA in that horological hotbed, Le Locle. From the inception of the company, its main stock in trade was dress watches. Their expertly-engineered pocket watches earned a place of distinction with luxury consumers in the early 1900s, and in 1906 DOXA earned a Gold Medal at the International Exhibition in Milan. 

Throughout the 20th Century, DOXA introduced a wide variety of timepieces. They ranged from consumer grade, time-only watches to ornate ladies cocktail pieces, alarm clocks, precision cockpit instruments (including the first 8-day movement developed for use in automobiles), and military-issued wristwatches. The 1940s and 50s saw the introduction of a number of beautiful chronographs that combined elegant looks with the precision that consumers had come to expect from DOXA.

This beautiful steel chronograph epitomizes DOXA's mid-century design prowess. The blue and red outer tachymetre and telemeter tracks are an exercise in concentricity, the twin chronograph registers a practice in balance. The Arabic numerals are legible and have taken on an impressive patina over time, giving the watch a sporty, classic look. 

In our opinion, chronographs from the 1950s and 1960s are some of the most desirable and beautiful timepieces in the horological world. Whether by horological heavy-hitters like Universal Genève and Heuer or humbler brands, these watches represent the pinnacle of horological achievement before the dawn of the Quartz Age. This watch is no exception, and since large steel chronographs from this era are gaining a cult following, it should not be overlooked.
