DOXA Sub 300T Divingstar

DOXA: The most important vintage diver's watch you've never heard of.

Known to enthusiasts primarily for introducing the world's first orange-faced diving watch, DOXA also pioneered a number of other important diver-watch firsts, including the Helium Release Valve and the expanding diver's clasp, and were sold in the United States under exclusive license by US Divers/Aqualung - the dive equipment outfit owned by Jacques Cousteau.  In addition to the traditional orange model, DOXA produced their iconic timepieces with black, silver, and yellow dials, the latter being the rarest and arguably the most desirable execution of the bunch.  All versions featured the same 300 Meter depth rating and heavy duty case designs.

We've done our best to convey the historical significance of the Sub 300 and offer some excellent examples of vintage pieces on these very pages, and now we're very pleased to offer this Divingstar, in entirely original condition with a tremendous look straight out of the early 1970s - the golden age of sport diving.  There is little doubt that the DOXA story is beginning to catch on, and we wouldn't be surprised to see these rare divers take a major upswing in value in the near future.  Now is your chance to obtain one of the more unusual original variants, don't miss it!
