DOXA SUB 300 50th Anniversary Edition

In 2017, the DOXA SUB 300 as the original orange dial dive watch celebrated its silver anniversary.

The DOXA SUB 300 was created to provide a top quality dive watch for the emerging recreational scuba diving market. Launched in 1967, it quickly became the reference for all dive watches that would follow.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the DOXA SUB, the Swiss brand has gone back to their archives and produced a watch that combines the look and feel of the original with the latest in Swiss watch making know how. The result is the 50th Anniversary DOXA SUB 300.

Priced at $2,490 and limited to 300 pieces per model, this timepiece is available in the three traditional DOXA versions –

Professional – Orange
Sharkhunter – Black
Searambler – Silver

Like the original the case is solid, stainless steel measuring 42.5 mm in diameter, and 13.4 mm thick. The movement is ETA’s 2824-2 Chronometer Grade version. Like the original SUB 300 the stainless steel bracelet is DOXA’s unique “beads of rice” style, with an interesting taper from 22 mm to 20 mm where the clasp is equipped with an integrated wetsuit extension.

The bezel displays DOXA’s innovative adaptation of the US Navy’s maximum no decompression limit times, which is engraved in orange on the outer unidirectional bezel. And while the crystal bears a striking resemblance to the plexi crystal of the original 300, it is, in fact a double bubble sapphire crystal.
