DOXA is arguably this year’s biggest breakthrough brand in the UK after The Blue Company took on distribution for the dive watch specialist.
The brand will build on its surging popularity with an appearance at WATCHPRO Salon in November, presenting a limited edition reinterpreted of its iconic SUB 600T in a new shade of blue, a new case, and in titanium.
First introduced in the ‘80s, the SUB 600T joined previous DOXA dive models as a legend in its own time.
Now, 40 years later, it is reborn in a brushed titanium case with ceramic bezel inlay bezel and comes with a dial colour in a shade of blue matched to the Pacific Ocean.
On the outside, this 3-hand dive watch remains true to the aesthetics that made the SUB 600T famous.
On the inside, it impresses with all the technical features that make it a high-performance, reliable, accessible and desirable dive watch for our times.
The SUB 600T’s brushed titanium 40mm case is topped by a sapphire crystal. The crown is positioned at 4 o’clock and the patented unidirectional ceramic rotating bezel, with dive time in minutes and depth in feet, prepares for safe ascents without decompression stops.
The dial in ‘Pacific Ocean blue’ is a first for DOXA, and it evokes that ultramarine shimmer of the waters around Australia, the home of Time+Tide.
SUB 200 C-GRAPH
Also on show at DOXA’s WATCHPRO Salon stand will be the colourful family of SUB 200 C-GRAPH automatic chronographs.
The 45mm stainless steel watches, waterproof to 200 metres, are offered in orange, silver, black, navy blue, yellow and turquoise.
Three sub dial chronographs are not typically considered as divers’ watches, which tend to favour simplicity and legibility over finely graduated measurement of time, but DOXA has combined the two and ensured the SUB 200 C-GRAPH is easily read in poor light conditions through the use of Super-LumiNova hands and markers.
The collection, which uses a Swiss-made automatic chronograph movement, comes with either stainless steel rice bead bracelets or rubber straps that match the dial colours.
They are on sale now for £2590 on the bracelet £2550 on the rubber strap.
DOXA is one of the star brands at this year’s WATCHPRO Salon, a showcase of prestige watchmakers and a chance for brands, retailers and press to meet collectors and enthusiasts in 5-star luxury.
The two-day event takes place from November 12 to 13 at The Londoner, a brand new 5-star hotel on London’s Leicester Square.
