Doxa have a substantial Asian setup with Walca but put together an entirely different Swiss operation to make a forum watch that sold in pretty low volumes. Yeah. Sure.

Interesting, I had a dream recently (before the WUS article was written) where I visited a mall in China and discovered a little stall, almost a tent selling Doxa watches, including subs. I was accosted by a midget and a giant bald dude, who attempted to kill me after I took some photos of all these Doxa's on pallets. The stall was actually the Doxa factory outlet and main headquarters, where they shipped watches internationally using a false Swiss address and documentation.

The guys attacking me like a bad Bond film were employees of Doxa. Maybe a premonition of some sort, but I have never trusted the Swiss manufacturing info from Doxa.

Cheers
