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 dig '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, 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, the second series of a limited edition commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Sub 300 Professional. 

It features the same 42.5mm stainless steel cushion case that we all adore, with a boxed sapphire crystal, a signed crown, and a unidirectional rotating timing/decompression bezel with orange and black text. Its black ‘Sharkhunter’ dial — with its applied, luminous indices, sword handset, date window at 3 o’clock, and prominent minute track, call back to historical DOXA models. But it’s the ‘Aqua Lung’ logo in the lower left-hand quadrant that truly gets collectors’ hearts racing: Referencing the original partnership between DOXA and Jacques Cousteau’s SCUBA equipment company, it now signifies a limited edition that modern DOXA nerds all yearn to own. 

These pieces, like the DOXAs of yore and today, are powered by a robust and proven ETA self-winding movement and come fitted to a stainless steel 'beads-of-rice' bracelet with a signed locking clasp with diving extension. Further, this bad boy comes with all of its factory goodies!

Produced in just a few hundred examples, these 50th-anniversary Subs are rare, handsome, and highly sought after. The black ‘Sharkhunter', with its sleek looks and distinctly utilitarian bent, is furthermore the perfect aquatic companion.

Once you strap it on your wrist, we’re sure you’ll agree with us! 

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.
