MY WATCH STORY: Paul’s Doxa Chronograph

WHAT IS THE STORY OF THIS WATCH?

I bought it at the Munich Watch Fair a few years back for 1200 Euro. I’ve since been offered 5,000 Euro for it. I’ve collected watches since I was 11. My grandfather gave me a wristwatch and I’ve been hooked since then. It was an American brand, Gruen Curvex. As a young boy I’d go to flea markets and fairs. It was mechanics and all that. The thing about chronographs is that people don’t use them. It seems to be more about the dial layout. The balance perhaps? This one is beautiful with the outer Telemetre scale and the spiral tachymetre scale – very much of the times. It’s a bit like an ironing board, you don’t really use it that often. I actually race cars and I do use a chronograph then, but it’s usually one that’s easier to use, a more legible one.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

That looks like a Dan Henry. And the author is an imposter.
