Swiss watch brand DOXA has launched the new SUB 300β Seddiqi Edition in collaboration with Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons.
Basting a natural mother of pearl dial, this timepiece is based on the SUB 300β model introduced in Geneva last September.
The DOXA SUB 300β is an evolution of the iconic SUB 300 with all the technical attributes, but slightly slimmer, more in tune with a contemporary urban lifestyle. Now, DOXA presents a limited edition SUB 300β in honor of the brand’s prestigious partner in the Middle East, Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons.
With this new watch, DOXA is introducing – for the first time in the history of the SUB – a magnificent, deep sea blue dial in natural mother-of-pearl.
The SUB 300β Seddiqi Edition 2023 honors the aesthetic codes that defined the SUB 300T’slegendary design, while adding a soft, subtle touch of contemporary elegance. The SUB 300β is slightly reworked to create a slimmer watch, with a profile of just 11.95 mm (compared to 13.65 mm for the SUB 300T) and a lower bezel height (by 0.5 mm) than on the SUB 300T.
With a diameter of 42.5 mm and a water resistance rating of 30 ATM (equivalent to 300 meters or just over 980 feet), the SUB 300β Seddiqi Edition 2023 is carved from a solid block of 316L stainless steel.
It features the renowned DOXA-patented unidirectional rotating bezel – here, with a blue ceramic insert echoing the dial – that features dual scales for dive duration (in minutes) and depth (in meters) to calculate no-decompression dives. All diving-related indications of the dial are coated with Super-LumiNova®, ensuring optimal legibility underwater and in low-light conditions.
The rich sea blue of the mother-of-pearl dial offers a radiance and depth never before seen from DOXA, an effect that is magnified by the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal’s anti-reflective coating. The tried and true Swiss automatic movement ensures optimum reliability and a comfortable power reserve of approximately 38 hours.
The SUB 300β Seddiqi Edition 2023 is available with the historic ‘Beads of Rice’ bracelet in stainless steel, or with a white FKM rubber strap for a lighter more modern look. Both have a folding clasp featuring an adjustable wetsuit extension.
