On the wooden beam: Doxa Antimagnetic “Oversized”

Posted by

Lately I have seen a lot of really good looking Doxa Time only “oversized” watches in social media.. This reminded me of a watch I picked up many years ago on a whim due to the exceptional patina…

The watch ended up in a box and has been there for many years…

Maybe now is the time to bring it out for some fresh air?!

On the wooden beam – Doxa Antimagnetic “Oversized”, 35 mm in diameter chrome case with stainless steel case back.

As said, what got me to grab this watch was the exceptional patina of the dial!

Must admit, that I know very little about these “oversized” Doxa… Based on the look, size and the movement being a 11 1/2, ETA 942 based movement, I am guessing late 1940’s or early 1950’s.

On the wrist this watch is a real charmer! Elegant, low key, with a very warm patina…

I don’t even have proper documentation for this one… The closest I have in my library is this scan from the 1951 Basel Fair:

Maybe time for me to start reading up on these Doxa Antimagnetic oversized..?!
