When talking about DOXA dive watches, the difficulty is not figuring out what to say, it's trying to decide which parts of their incredible history to leave out. While the brand lives in relative obscurity today, producing mostly quartz divers, their lineage goes all the way back to the dawn of sport diving and the undisputed king of the deep, Jacques Yves Cousteau.
Back in the day, DOXA matched the Rolex Submariner stride for stride in the dive community, and even managed to out pace Rolex a handful of times - like when they produced the first uni-directional ratcheting bezel, or when they built the first brightly-colored dial (orange) to help divers read their watch in low-light environs.
The driving force behind DOXA's innovations was Cousteau himself who, in the late sixties, worked with the brand, alongside other notable sub-mariners, to build the perfect dive watch.
The DOXA 300T Professional was the result.
So impressed by the watch was Cousteau that he ordered them in bulk for sale in his U.S. Divers shops nation wide, effectively weaving the name DOXA into the very fabric of the then fledgling sport of SCUBA.
It's not hard to see what Cousteau liked about these unapologetic tool watches. Designed with pure purpose in mind, from their thick steel cases to their simple and legible dials and their robust ETA automatic movements, DOXA's 300T Professional is nothing if not a tough-as-nails piece of kit for everyday wear - rain, shine or 300 meters below the blue.
This particular watch represents DOXA's storied past with an unerring aplomb. Obviously worn and used as designed, this guy has definitely punched the clock on some serious adventures, as the wicked patina on the original case suggests. Take it from us - the unofficial DOXA guys - there is no cooler watch to strap on when the chips are down and you need a little horological love to get you through the day, no matter what situation you find yourself in.
