In the 1950s and 1960s, some of the most beautiful and fascinating chronographs ever made by human ability were created by those that can be defined as “second tier” brand but which have very little to envy in terms of efficiency, complexity and beauty to the most famous ones. This kind of watch is gaining more and more following among collectors given their remarkable charm and rarity and among these rising brands we find Doxa. In 1889, Georges Ducommun founded Doxa in that incredible forge of high watchmaking such as Le Locle and since the beginning of his activity, his main items on the market were wristwatches, later specializing in chronographs. Among these, the present Doxa chronograph in steel with push buttons and screw-down back can surely be easily inserted. The dial is exceptional for the homogeneous brown patina that has been created over the years, while the blue and red external tachymetric and telemetric scales are an example in perfect concentricity. The dial is masterfully completed by the luminous Arabic numerals and hands. The lot is accompanied by the original Doxa guarantee and box.
