My watchmaker has been in the business 25 years and says he has never seen a movement as exquisite as this 1960s Doxa's. We believe it.
It's a Chezard Cal. 2-115 dead beat 21-jewel mechanism. It's called a "dead seconds" or "jump seconds" movement because the seconds hand jumps from second to second. The movement is gold-plated and as we said, extremely rare. There are only a few on web sites around the world and we are proud to have one here at vintagewatchclassics!
It is even more rare to find this watch in amazing minty condition. The silvered dial with dauphine hands and gold embossed markers is unrefinished and close to mint.
The details: The case, gold-capped bezel and stainless back, measures 35mm across, excluding the unsigned crown...by 42 mm from lug to beefy lug.
The stainless steel back has some blemishing as the photos show, but nothing major.
Vintage watch people tend to wear out the word "rare." But this time it applies. I have a video of the movement working, should you be interested. Just email.
This is a piece of watchmaking history. Own it.
