Unfortunately Doxa serial numbers are not available - see:

If you provide pictures of the watch and movement, the more erudite members in here can probably date it to within a few years. Does it have British hallmarks on the case?

Dear Marrick
As I am new to vintage watches I do not know what a 'British Hallmark" is?
thanks

Unfortunately case numbers are useless for identification except for some British hallmarks which give the year of assay and the location in the UK where the assay took place. What you have described doesn't sound like those types of marks.
If you post some photos of the dial case and movement we might be able to help. Since you already know your watch is from the 1930s all we might be able to do is identify the type of chronograph movement you have.

b-) Its as Ray says. The picture below shows an example. The 9 means 9 carat; the .375 is the metric equivalent (9 divided by 24 as pure gold is 24ct), the Anchor shows it was assayed in Birmingham, and the Q - in that style - shows it was 1965. The other numbers inside this case would have meant something once, but records of case numbers have not been kept or are not available. SOME other countries have a similar system, but can be very hard for foreign amateurs to decode. A lot of Swiss watches were put into British cases, so I thought'd I'd ask.
