The main servicing procedure
- A Complete Service involves the watchmaker checking the watch’s functions, diagnosing the cause of any faults.
- The complete dismantling of the movement with the correction of any faults and replacement of any damaged / worn parts.
- All parts are then cleaned in a series of ultrasonic chemical baths which removes all the old oil, grease and dirt.
- While the movement is being cleaned the case will be completely broken down (case back, bezel, crystal,pushers etc. removed) and, having removed all the seals and gaskets, refinished and cleaned in large ultrasonic tanks.
- Once the case is clean it is reassembled with new seals and gaskets, which are lubricated as required with special greases. The case is now ready to receive the cleaned movement.
- The cleaned movement and pristine components are systematically reassembled and lubricated using up to 8 different fine synthetic oils and greases, before having the dial and hands refitted.
- The watchmaker will now reset the clean movement with the dial and hands mounted into the watch case ensuring there are no hairs or dust in the case and recheck the watch regulation on the timing machine.
- Once the case is closed the watch is then tested for water resistance and the final aesthetic, timekeeping and power reserve checks are made to ensure the watch is performing correctly.
- The watch is opened and electronic components checked using specific testing equipment.
- Replacement of the battery and gaskets as appropriate to the watch model.
- Tested for water resistance. Final aesthetic and timekeeping checks to ensure the watch is performing correctly.

Georges Ducommun was one of 13 children and only twelve years old when he began his apprenticeship with an established watchmaker in 1880.
Georges had built a solid reputation for ingenuity, attention to detail, quick service and customer orientation and soon realized it was time to step out of his comfort zone and opened his own business, “Georges Ducommun, Fabriques Doxa” at the age of 21.
Georges was driven to innovate to achieve immutable durability and split-second precision. When Geroges passed away in 1936, his son-in-law Jacques Nardin (grandson of Ulysse Nardin, founder of the renowned eponymous brand), took the helm and continued the journey. While the focus remained on travel and sport timepieces, DOXA continued to develop watches for all types of customers.
DOXA’s aesthetic credentials were cemented by an instant classic in 1957: a minimalist, Bauhaus-inspired “Grafic” dress watch collection. Ten years later, a purpose-designed, professional-grade SUB dive watch – the first accessible to the growing community of sports divers – sealed technical credentials. The SUB was developed with diving-legend Jacques-Yves Cousteau and introduced radical innovations that made it the benchmark for military and professional divers, even to this day.
A new era began when the Jenny family acquired DOXA in 1997, merging an enduring appeal of iconic collections with a family active in watchmaking for four generations. The headquarters were transferred to Biel/Bienne, Switzerland.
In 2019, Romeo F. Jenny was appointed as President of the Board of Directors of Walca Group and Jan Edöcs, Board Member of the Walca Group and CEO of DOXA Watches.
The world over and across generations of divers and adventurers. DOXA SUB stands for the benchmark for diving watches, greatly contributing to the safety of professional and sports divers thanks to the many technical details they introduced.
