Anyone have any experience with Marvin or Doxa vintage watches from the 1960s-1970s? My watch maker has some in great condition and I was wondering how they rate quality wise against the more well known swiss brands... Omega, Longines, etc.

Marvin made some excellent watches in the '60s. I own two, a simple, elegant, manual wind dress watch, and arguably the company's best ever offering, a Flying Dutchman.

Here they are...

Afaik, Doxa used modified movements from decent makers such as ETA. Nothing wrong with old Doxa watches, but they often fetch higher prices than they otherwise would because of the current high profile of their dive watches.

I'll take you up on that argument :-d I think the inhouse Marvin triple date calendar I have gives the Dutchman a run for its money.

Yes, Marvin made some goood stuff.
I place complications in a different category, so I wasn't including them in my assessment.
