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!

While not nearly as well-known as the Blancpain Fifty-Fathoms or the Rolex Submariner, the DOXA Sub series played an integral role in the development of the modern diver's watch.

The first generation of the model, introduced in 1967, brought innovations we now take for granted: the unidirectional bezel with the US Navy's no-decompression dive timing marks engraved, the expanding bracelet, and an oversized, luminous minute hand. After its introduction, DOXA rapidly became a household name for professional and amateur divers in the late 1960s and 1970s, and the Sub 300 evolved into an even more capable and reliable instrument.

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. They feature the same 42.5mm cusion case in stainless steel that we all love with a boxes sapphire crystal, a signed crown, a unidirectional rotating timing/decompression bezel, and a luminous glossy black dial with the coveted 'Blacklung' logo, and a matching handset.

These pieces, like the DOXAs of yore and today, are powered by a robust and proven ETA automatic winding movement and come fitted to a stainless steel 'beads-of-rice' bracelet with a signed fliplock clasp with diving extension.

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.

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!

Brand 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.
