Swiss watch brand DOXA releases the new SUB 300T inspired by internationally recognized author, maritime explorer, as well as founder of the National Underwater and Marine Agency, Clive Cussler.
The acclaimed American adventure novelist wrote over 85 books, selling over 100 million copies, and discovered scores of shipwrecks through the non-profit agency he founded called, NUMA. Cussler’s books have been adapted to the big screen twice; Raise of the Titanic (1980) and Sahara (2005).
Cussler’s novels were highly influential in spotlighting DOXA to the world, its famous orange dial was monumental in coming to renowned fictional adventure hero, Dirk Pitt’s aid, enabling the adventurer to read the time accurately while diving on his deadline driven missions.
Just as Cussler’s novels explored historical mysteries and transported characters on epic quests, the celebrated author, explorer and personal DOXA wearer, inspired DOXA to reimagine the SUB 300T, which now introduces an artistic and historical look to the series.
The DOXA Clive Cussler watch stays true to the SUB 300T collection’s core characteristics while remaining highly distinctive. With an original handmade dial evoking a vintage compass, and the use of an aged steel appearance applied to the watch, bracelet, clasp, and pin buckle, the watch has a weathered look.
Each timepiece is discreetly and individually engraved with its own exclusive number on the side of the bezel, indicating its uniqueness and authenticity. With a faceted, structured 42mm diameter case, this watch features a special design that captures the Cussler identity and commemorates the author’s birthday (July 15th, 1931), as the dates 7, 15, and 31 are displayed in red on the dial.
A percentage of sales from this special edition DOXA Clive Cussler watch will be donated to NUMA, the National Underwater and Marine Agency Cussler founded in 1979.
Additionally, the names of shipwrecks and other historical artifacts that have been discovered or surveyed by NUMA up to 2022 are engraved on the back of the SUB 300T Clive Cussler case.
Each timepiece comes with an extra NATO beige strap. An additional black FKM rubber strap with an aged stainless steel coating folding clasp is available for purchase.
With a suggested retail price of $2,690, the SUB 300T Clive Cussler watch is available from May 18th, 2023, at select retailers, and the e-shop on the official DOXA website. The cost of additional FKM rubber strap is 470 CHF / 490 EUR / 490 $.
