DOXA Ultraspeed Chronograph

DOXA today have a great reputation with Dive Watches and an Orange DOXA is on the wish list of every watch lover with Diving DNA.


However, DOXA was perhaps first really known for the watches and movements they developed for the rapidly emerging automobile industry. DOXA’s founder – Georges Ducommun was such a car nut that he even had a gas station at his residence (The Ducommun residence is today’s Switzerland’s largest horological museum, where the gas pumps can still be seen)! This led to an 8-day movement to power the dashboard clocks of the legendary Bugatti.




In honor of the 120th anniversary of DOXA, they have  introduced a watch that embodies the spirit of their founder – the DOXA Ultraspeed! This is a limited edition of 150 total pieces.


Under the hood, the engine driving the Ultraspeed is the Valjoux 7750 with Power Reserve indicator. This exceptional engine is housed in a 44 mm solid stainless steel cockpit.




The Ultraspeed – with you to the finish line!
