Why We Love it

We aren't shy about our love of DOXA here at Analog:Shift.

In fact, the original inspiration behind Analog:Shift was squarely centered on DOXA! In any flavor, any color, from the classic orange-dialed Professional to the stunning silver-dialed Searambler, we love 'em all.

While perhaps not 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 - a uni-direcitonal bezel with the US Navy's no-decompression dive timing marks engraved, an expanding bracelet, brightly colored hi-legibility dial and an oversized luminous minute hand to name but a few. 

The DOXA 'Professionals', which features bright and stand-out orange dials, is perhaps the most ubiquitous and sought after configuration of the lineage.

This particular example, a 300T, dates to circa the mid-late 1970s, likely just after DOXA was absorbed into the Synchron group, as evident by the group's logo on the signed 'ratcheting' clasp. The 42mm cushion case and bezel assembly remain in fantastic, strong condition, with recent professional refinishing. The 'Aqua-Lung' dial retains its vibrant color and shows even patination to its Tritium indices and handset.

It would be enough to enjoy this excellent piece on its own, but this piece comes compete with all its goodies.

Clean examples of vintage Sub 300s such as this one truly do not surface often, let alone with full kit!

Don't miss out on this fantastic example!

Overall Condition

The case is in outstanding condition overall showing recent professional refinishing and faint wear from gentle use. Orange 'Aqua-Lung' dial with Tritium indices is in excellent condition with evenly patinated Tritium elements and matching handset. Professionally refinished bezel. Unsigned crown. DOXA caseback.

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.
