DOXA is synonymous with dive watches. In 1967, it launched its revolutionary SUB, a first truly purpose-designed dive watch for everyone. Capable of withstanding depths of up to 300m, it was also the first dive watch to feature a unidirectional bezel with a dual scale for depth and dive time to calculate a safe ascent without decompression stops.
Now in 2020, it is reissuing the SUB 300 Professional, available in six stunning and easy to read dial colours including orange which was known for its fantastic legibility underwater, on either a beads of rice steel bracelet or a sporty rubber strap both of which have a wetsuit extension to accommodate the thickness of a wetsuit.
As a nod to its heritage, today’s SUB 300 is topped with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective treatment. It has the same domed shape as the plexiglass on the 1967 original. The case is 42.5mm and built from 316L stainless steel whilst the self-winding movement has a 38-hour power reserve. Prices start at $2,450 for the rubber strapped version whilst the steel bracelet moves the price up by $40 to $2,490.
