Doxa SUB Divers Collection

It was the head of DOXA product development, Urs Eschle,  who had a vision to create a precision timepiece for the growing number of professional and recreational divers. We owe him a great deal. Introducing the DOXA Sub Dive Watches ….

This was in the early 1950’s when people had just been given the invention of the Aqua-Lung. What Eschle wanted was a reliable and robust watch that moved away from the military look and feel of the dive watches from the last decade. And that’s precisely what we got – this stunning range of instantly recognizable Doxa diving watches.

In the beginning – a 12 year old’s vision …

Georges Ducommun was only twelve years old when he began his apprenticeship with an established watchmaker in 1880. Over several years Georges imagined ways that he could improve the components to make an even better watch. He soon realized it was time to move on and open his own business. And that’s what he did in 1889 aged just 21 “Georges Ducommun, Fabriques Doxa” started manufacturing his own watches.

Enter Aqua-Lung co-inventor Jacques Cousteau

He also wanted to produce an affordable watch purpose-designed for the expanding community of underwater explorers. He set up a team that included professional divers such as Claude Wesly and none other than Monsieur Jacques-Yves Cousteau – co-inventor of the Aqua-Lung

Welcome to the Doxa Sub 300T

The DOXA SUB 300T was introduced to the world at the huge Baselworld watch expo in 1967. It was the first 100% purpose-designed, professional-grade sports diving watch. Many of the design features we see in other popular dive watches have taken their DNA from the radical innovations of the DOXA SUB 300T. It really did establish itself as the benchmark of the professional diver’s watch. For the record, the Doxa SUB 300T gets the name from it’s water resistancy – 300 meters and the, now banned, luminous material on the hands and dial- Tritium.

Some nice examples of Doxa Sub Diver’s sold on eBay

eBay is a great place to go to check a) the current prices of a specific watch and b) to see what the watch looks like in the “real world”. Most product photos on eBay are taken with great care to best represent the watch. You get to see what it really looks like (not a computer enhanced brochure photo). All the watches shown below have been sold recently on eBay. These watches were selected as they give the DOXA newbie a good feel for the range with all models covered from the Doxa 200 to the Doxa 1500T

We’ve been looking at the offerings on eBay for some time now. Occasionally we see a “Doxa homage” from a brand called SEESTERN. They’re actually not bad watches – like Steeldive and their Seiko tributes – as long as you know it’s NOT actually a genuine Doxa. We’ve not seen any actual Doxa fakes as such – so shopping on eBay is quite safe as long as you take the normal distance buying precautions. 1) check seller credentials 2) try and get a watch with full set papers, box, original invoice etc 3) if in doubt – walk away.

Current Models in the Doxa Sub Collection

We’re only teasing the surface here with this comprehensive range of diving tools. If you’re new to the brand then you MUST pop over to their website to fully appreciate what’s on offer. The innovations, the styles, the technical capabilities and – something very important to us – the history. Below are just a few images of these stunning watches. Unfortunately none of the team at ChronoDivers have actually owned one – but Doxa is on all our Watch Bucket Lists.

Doxa Sub 200 (including C Graph and T Graph)

Doxa have dozens of dive watches starting with the ever popular Doxa Sub 200. A stunningly simple three handed timepiece with date and unidirectional dive time bezel. Most popular in this range, as with a majority of the others, are thos watches with the Orange dial (Professional). The Sub 200 also comes with Black dial (Shark Hunter), Silver Dial (Searambler), Blue dial (Caribbean) , Yellow dial (Diving Star), Aquamarine and White Pearl.  The Sub 200 C-Graph version features a Chrongraph and the T-Graph with 2 sub-dials, a 30 minute chronograph and a small seconds dial.

Doxa Sub 300 and Sub 300T

This is one of our favourites. We love the innovative, patented dual function dive time bezel. On the outside of the ring is the depth in metres (300 version) or feet (300T model). On the inside of the ring are time markers in minutes. This clever calculator can be used as a quick reference depth and the related “no decompression” time – eg at 20m diver can spend up to 50 minutes with the need for decompression stops. For more details on the other Doxa Diver’s watches please pop over to their website, link below.

Doxa Sub 600T – an icon reborn

The reborn Doxa SUB 600T comes in a marine grade stainless steel featuring either a steel or black ceramic bezel insert. The 600T is available in 6 vibrant colours and comes mounted on either a stainless-steel bracelet or the soft but durable FKM rubber strap. With the 6 different colours and various strap offerings – all in all there are 24 different combinations to choose from

Doxa Sub 1500T

The Doxa SUB 1500T is a watch true to the pioneering spirit of the brand. It breaks new ground with a cushion-shaped 316L marine grade steel case. This watch is certified to the deepest of depths – the case being pressure rated to 150 bar / 1,500 meters. Take the Seiko Turtle and put it on steroids – that’s the Doxa SUB 1500T. As with all proper diver’s watches it features a unidirectional bezel with diving table and a helium release valve. For a watch with such strength and pressure resisting characteristics it’s surprising to see it comes in a very wearable 45mm width case.

Sub 600, Sub 1500 and Army editions

The gallery below showcases three other models from this innovative and refreshingly unique brand. First we have the Doxa Sub 600T followed by the Sub 1500T and finally the stunning ARMY with it’s unique contrasting cream and black dial.

Doxa Army Diver’s Watch

This is a watch you can tell from a mile off – just like the Bell & Ross Diver and other uniquely styled timepieces. The DOXA Army is available with two bezel materials – marine grade steel or bronze. The steel bezel option features a black ceramic insert and the bronze come with a hunter green ceramic insert. It 50 years since the DOXA Army was first introduced to the elite Swiss Army divers. Doxa celebrate this allegiance by reissuing this iconic Army approved Diver’s watch – an instantly recognizable watch with a cult following.
