DOXA 125 years: Festive Anniversary Celebration

The new orange booth of DOXA at this year’s BASELWORLD was the perfect location for a festive anniversary celebration. Between showcases with treasures from the past, DOXA’s CEO, Mr. Romeo F. Jenny was very pleased to present two novelties to the assembled guests. As he unveiled the glass globes, he introduced the DOXA 8 DAYS MANUFACTURE and the BLUE PLANET timepieces. Both watches, specially designed for the 125th anniversary, manufactured in a limited series, reflect DOXA’s close ties to its history and commitment to safeguarding our «Blue Planet».

In 1907 DOXA was the first Swiss watch company to patent the 8 DAYS caliber movement. Some of these original movements are still in storage and will now be polished to new glory to make the DOXA 8 DAYS MANUFACTURE tick with tradition to the future, making each of this limited series a perfect representative of DOXA’s heritage. Not only Mr. Jean Daniel Pasche, Director of the Swiss Federations of the Watch Industry, appreciated the high precision workmanship of this collector’s piece of art.

The BLUE PLANET is DOXA’s newest masterpiece in the GrandeMetre series. It unites perpetuity and infinity of time and space, symbolized by the sparkling dark blue aventurine dial. On the case back a delicate engraving of our world; our «Blue Planet» completes the overall symbolic character of this GMT watch.

«The DOXA 8 DAY MANUFACTURE is homage to our past, our history, the BLUE PLANET is homage to our future», summarized Romeo F. Jenny, CEO of DOXA.

Looking towards the next 10 years, Mr. Romeo F. Jenny plans to continue to strengthen DOXA’s traditionally strong market presence in the Far East and Eastern European markets. Committed to manufacturing high quality watches with a special cachet, DOXA will build on this solid foundation for its future growth. A strategy in complete harmony with the market trends in Asia, as Mr. Allen Lau, DOXA’s very successful representative for the Asian market pointed out. He congratulated Romeo F. Jenny and DOXA and thanked them and all DOXA’s partners for their great and fruitful cooperation.

The buzz in the DOXA booth was proof of the evening’s big success. Guests from near and far enjoyed this great opportunity to meet and discuss the world of watch making in the elegant DOXA booth. Mr. Romeo F. Jenny, his sister, Mrs. Patrizia N. Jenny, and their father, Mr. Peter P. Jenny, mingled with the honored guests and made sure that everybody had his or her picture taken as a souvenir of the 125th anniversary.

«Directeurs et collaborateurs de doxa ont communie dans le meme amour de qualite. Ils se sont fixes, d’une generation a l’autre, un seul devoir: exceller.»
