The Watch

Back in 1957 Doxa released the Iconic cult Series DOXA Grafic, whose elegant and simple style had been inspired by the Bauhaus movement.
The Line is so highly thought of by Doxa that in 2007, they relaunched the line to celebrate the lines 50th anniversary.
The Grafic of 1957, with its stark dial with a scaled down starburst pattern, was a Bauhaus influenced design born of Pierre Henry’s (Doxa’s Advertising Manager) keenness for a thin, square cased dress watch that was non-angular. The trend at the time had been very much for round cases.
