Why We Love it

There are two things we love more in this world more than a dram of ten-year-old Laphroaig.  A beautiful DOXA is one of them.  The other?  Well, we'll let you use your imagination...In the early days of SCUBA, a good dive watch was hard to find.  Some designs failed and others downright flopped.  But the innovative designs that DOXA compiled a series of innovative purpose-built elements (uni-directional rotating bezel, expanding steel bracelet with ratcheting clasp, helium release valve and orange dial, to name a few) into their watches and were universally hailed as a success.  So much so that the King of The Sea himself, Jacques Cousteau, selected DOXA to be the only dive watch to be sold through his U.S. Divers Company at dive shops nationwide.  In our opinion, and in the opinion of savvy collectors all over who have listened to our constant soap-box rantings, DOXA should be ranked and regarded among side those other iconic divers - the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms and the Rolex Submariner.

Alas, the brand didn't have the financial power of the larger companies, and was lost in obscurity for decades as a result of the quartz crisis, kept alive to a dedicated legion of enthusiasts only through the writings of adventure writer Clive Cussler, whose fictional hero wore an orange dial DOXA in many of his world-saving exploits.

But not all DOXAs were orange!  The absolutely awesome Sub 300T Sharkhunter, an example of which we have for you here features a black dial with white markers and hands.  Known to the DOXA faithful as a "Sharkie," it is every bit as awesome a vintage diver as it's orange-dialed brothers.  This early 1970s example is in excellent condition overall, featuring an original DOXA dial and handset, Synchron caseback and Synchron-signed crown.

Lots of great information about the history of the DOXA brand and their timepieces can be found HERE.
