This Vintage Doxa 1943 Mens Sub Seconds 35m Watch is a rarely seen model from one of the stalwarts of early Swiss vintage watch manufacturing.

Being born into a poor family of 13 children will often provide the source for unbounding determination to ‘rise to a higher station in life’  or may be the beginning of what was often a hard and short life. 

Fortunately , for those with a passion for quality Swiss vintage watches ,  Georges Ducommun was determined to make ‘something of himself’ …………. and that he did ~ with his legacy living !

Starting his long career at the very tender age of  12 ,  via an apprentice ship to a watch assembly Master ,  which was always going to be a perfect process to learn and understand ‘the soul’ of a watch  ……………… as watchmaking was far more than a job for the 12 yr old George.

Eight years after his commencing his apprenticeship the remarkable 20 year old Georges Ducommuns started his own business in 1889  ~  DOXA  ~
As many famous ir household names of the 21st {apple / M’soft , Henry Ford etc} Doxa watches were born in George Ducommuns back yard garage 

The maker of some especially fine pocket watches during the 19thC and as mens watches moved from their pockets  ~  to their wrists in the early 20thC  ~  George Ducommuns  was at the forefront.
He later collaborated with other Swiss legends to advance Swiss watchmaking technology.

Having produced an amazing variety and range of fine Swiss watches until their buyout in the 1960s ,  Doxa made fine quality watches to almost all markets , from watches catered for working men and woman  ~  to high end watches with all complications ,  receiving numerous gold medals and awards throughout their 70+ years of stewardship by the remarkable George Ducommuns 

This handsome Vintage Doxa 1943 Mens Sub Seconds 35m Watch is one such example.
Remaining in 100% original condition with a stunning dial.
Solid , sturdy straight side case in good original condition.

Roman numerals , beautiful hands with original lume ,  sub second dial  ~  in excellent condition with a great two tone colourway ….. which I will not add a name too as the pic’s are accurate as to colour  ….. I can’t think of the correct colour name  :} 
All combine to make a very appealing dial and all original.

The Doxa SA movement is running strong and keeping good time and is a reliable manual movement.
