Why We Love It
We’re known for our love of DOXA Subs.
In any flavor, any color, from the classic orange-dialed Professional to the sophisticated black-dialed Sharkhunter, we love 'em all.
This 300T 'Divingstar' with its bright yellow dial is like the Giant Squid: rare and elusive. Exact quantities of these watches are unknown, but when one surfaces on the vintage market, collectors take note.
This particular Divingstar is a later version, released after DOXA was absorbed into the Synchron group, as evident by the Group's logo engraved on the case back. The dial and bezel assembly retain their vibrant colors, showing light even patina across its luminous indices and handset.
Clean examples of vintage Divingstars such as this one truly do not surface (see what we did there?) often!
DOXA began Research and Development for the Sub 300 in 1964, under a team helmed by Urs Eschle, the brand's head of operations, who consulted professional divers including none other than the father of SCUBA himself, Jacques-Yves Cousteau.
Since wearability was crucial, Eschle designed a large case with wide rounded lugs. For the dial, the team tested many colors (orange, yellow, turquoise, and red) in the waters of Neuchatel Lake. An unprecedented amount of tritium was also used on the hands and hour indices.
The team implemented a unidirectional bezel with an innovative insert: the U.S. Navy No Decompression chart, with the outer depth scale in orange and the minute scale in black, to allow divers to gauge how much air was in left in their tanks. Rounding out the Sub 300's innovative design was a beads-of-rice bracelet that was the first to implement an ratcheting expandable clasp capable of fitting over a diver's wetsuit without having to remove links.
Stainless steel case is approximately 42mm (excluding the crown). ETA Calibre 2824-2 automatic-winding movement. DOXA Reference 58098-59. Circa 1970.
Overall Condition: The case is in fantastic condition overall showing wear consistent with age and use. Luminous yellow dial is in excellent condition with lightly aged indices and matching handset. Bezel retains factory finish.
Includes Spectre Yellow Analogshift leather strap with steel pin buckle.
