Following the introduction of the SUB 600T Pacific limited edition this summer, DOXA now launches the SUB 600T in stainless steel – a model that has been eagerly awaited by the entire community of partners and customers – as a non-limited edition.
The SUB 600T collection comes with a choice of two bezel versions – steel insert or ceramic insert – and in the brand’s 6 emblematic colors.
Introduced in the 1980s, SUB 600T is an iconic timepiece from DOXA. Water resistant to 600 meters, the original SUB 600T features a hefty chamfered case with straight angles and an offset crown at 4 o’clock. The unidirectional bezel that allows the calculation of the dive time without decompression stops – a DOXA patent – is more massive too, with the functional benefit of improved legibility and handling with a gloved hand.
Today, more than 40 years later, DOXA is paying tribute to the iconic SUB 600T with a new history. After the success of a limited titanium edition SUB 600T in Pacific blue this summer, DOXA brings out the SUB 600T in a non-limited edition to complete the DOXA SUB line-up: in stainless steel with a choice of steel bezel insert or black ceramic insert, and available in 6 vibrant, dazzling colors and with either a stainless-steel bracelet or an FKM rubber strap – in all, 24 combinations will be possible.
The SUB 600T with 3 hands and date remains true as ever to the aesthetic of the SUB 600T that defined DOXA in the 80s and became an icon of its era. At the same time, it comes with features that make this the reliable, desirable and eminently wearable contemporary diver’s watch.
At 40mm, the case diameter of the DOXA SUB 600T remains unchanged –judging by the perceived expanse of the dial, one would never guess that this is in fact the smallest diameter in the family. Made of 316L stainless steel and topped with a sapphire crystal, the case, and thus the movement it protects, is pressure-resistant to 60 bar (600 meters).
The crown is still at 4 o’clock and the patented rotating bezel unidirectional as it should be – to calculate a safe ascent without decompression stops. The bezel, with dual indication of the dive time (minutes) and depth (feet), can be ordered either with a sandblasted steel insert or with a ceramic insert.
All dive-related indications are coated with luminescent Super-LumiNova®, including the distinctive ‘shark tooth’ markers at 6, 9 and 12 o’clock, for optimal readability in low light conditions.
This collection is available with a tone-on-tone rubber strap to match the dial color or with the new 316L stainless steel bracelet that brings a ‘modern vintage’ touch to the DOXA collection.
The FKM rubber strap features a new clasp: it looks like a pin buckle, but it is actually a folding buckle for quick, convenient and comfortable adjustment to the owner’s wrist.
