DOXA TELEMETER

The legendary DOXA Telemeters, first developed in 1939, are an ideal example of the iconic Swiss watch brand’s passion of combining practicability, precision and elegance into an outstanding watch.

With their various dials, the beautiful lettering on it, their multiple uses at day and night and the striking case, the DOXA Telemeters have marked their place in elite sport competitions long ago, favored by people who care about an accurate measurement of time.

50 years after Georges Ducommun founded DOXA in 1889, the Telemeter chronograph was launched in 1939. 77 years later, DOXA has redesigned the original Telemeter of 1939. Doxa’s new Telemeter unites historical values with modern craftsmanship. It represents G. Ducommun’s credo to produce top quality watches at a reasonable price. And like its ancestor, the Telemeter is a unique eye-catcher and distinctive DOXA.
The DOXA Telemeter is available with a stainless steel and yellow gold PVD case. It is equipped with a top-quality Swiss quartz movement, sapphire crystal and a genuine leather strap. Combining accurate timing functions and convenient features, the new DOXA timepiece is a reliable must-have for all vintage watch lovers.
The Telemeter chronograph is a feature which allows the user to measure the distance to an event that can be seen or heard by using the speed of sound. The user starts the chronograph at the instant the event is heard and stops the timing at the instant the occasion is seen or vice versa. Etched around the face is a kilometric scale.

The seconds hand will point to the distance measured on the scale. An example often quoted is measuring the time elapsed from seeing a bolt of lightening to hearing the subsequent clap of thunder. However, this function was not developed to measure the distance to a thunderstorm, but the distance to the enemy during World War II.
