DOXA Sub 300T Sharkhunter

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 stunning silver-dialed Searambler, we love 'em all. In fact, the original inspiration behind Analog:Shift was squarely centered on DOXA!

The DOXA Sharkhunter, which feature matte black dials, are the most restrained colorway of the Sub collection, and arguably the most versatile.

This particular model, a 300T, was produced after DOXA was absorbed into the Synchron group, as evident by the group's logo engraved on the case back. Its dial and bezel assembly retain their vibrant colors, showing light even patina to its luminous Tritium indices and handset.  In addition to remaining in fantastic condition throughout, this piece is accompanied by its full kit from the 1970s.

Clean examples of vintage Sub 300s such as this one truly do not surface often, let alone with full kit!

Don't miss out on this museum-grade example!

The Story

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.
