Why We Love It
Our love for vintage DOXA should be pretty obvious at this point.
In our opinion, DOXA's contributions to the sport of SCUBA diving and the development of the modern diver's watch is nothing short of legendary.
The 42mm cushion case appropriately stays true to DOXA's roots. Fitted within the case is a matte black dial in immaculate condition with beautiful tritium elements throughout. Unlike the Sub 300, the Sub 200 T. Graph adds the chronograph function, with each sub-dial showing intricate details. The uni-directional bezel features orange and black accenting that matches the hands inside of the sub-dials. It is an exceptionally rare example in nothing short of collector grade condition.
A true titan in the history of diving watches, Doxa stands among the most lauded and prestigious brands. If dive watches are your desire - your collection will not be complete without a few in your roll.
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 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). Eberhard manually-winding chronograph movement. Circa 1960s.
Overall Condition: The case is in spectacular, collector grade condition showing only slight wear from gentle use. Luminous matte black dial is in excellent condition with applied markers and evenly patinated indices with matching handset. Signed crown.
Includes genuine stainless steel 'beads of rice' bracelet with signed stretch clasp.
