DOXA Sub 300 Sharkhunter 'Blacklung' Reissue

Why We Love It

Here at Analog/Shift, we’re known for our love of DOXA. In any flavor, any color, from the common yet wonderful orange-dialed Sub 300T Professional to the black-dialed Sharkhunter, the Army, any anything in between, we’ve counted them in our personal collection and offered them on our site. But our love of the brand doesn’t end with the vintage versions. DOXA is still around, and still manages to surprise us. Such is the case with this watch, a reissue of the Sub 300 Sharkhunter "Blacklung."

This is a limited-run reissue of a rare example from the first year of original production, 1967. These Sharkhunters stand out in the opposite way you might expect- the black dials stand apart from the iconic orange dials the brand is perhaps best known for. Just 100 examples of these were produced to commemorate the 'Blacklung' reissue trilogy, making it the rarest of the reissue styles made.

This particular example is brand-new, unworn, with factory plastic wrap still in place on its characteristic beads of rice bracelet. It comes with its original packing tube, bracelet sizing tool, DVD, and warranty card dated March 2019. 

Now's your chance to grab one of the most popular contemporary homages to one of the unsung heroes in the development of the modern dive watch - don't miss it! 

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.
