Doxa

Doxa

Doxa is a Swiss watch brand. Doxa was founded in 1889 in Neuchatel. Georges Ducommun (1868-1936), the founder of Doxa, was born in Le Locle among the Jura hills of canton Neuchatel in Switzerland. He was one of 13 children of a poor family. At the age of 12, he became an apprentice in a manufacture specialised in casing-up watch movements. He started his own watch repair business when he was 20. He worked hard to set up his business, walking the 10 kilometers to La Chaux-de Fonds to deliver his products personally, even in the depth of winter. The success of his watches enabled him to live in Chateau des Monts, today home of the world-renowned Le Locle horological museum. We cover Doxa prices, have the Doxa price list on our database, show you Doxa watches for sale and help you to identify false Doxa replica. We also have dozens of new and vintage Doxa watches in our luxury watch database, with Doxa photos, Doxa price list infos, Doxa sale data and Doxa watch band info. Our Christophe Claret reviews section help you identify the best watch.
