Doxa Bridges The Past & Future

Doxa Bridges The Past & Future

In 1967, DOXA launched the revolutionary SUB concept with the SUB 300, considered to be the first purpose-designed diver’s watch that was also accessible to the general public. The radical innovations it introduced quickly made it the benchmark for professionals, too. Rated to 30 ATM, i.e. water resistance to a depth of 300 meters, it marked a first with a patented rotating bezel that allowed the diver to calculate and monitor no-decompression dive times based on the official US Navy dive tables.

More than 50 years later, true to its unique tradition of innovation, the legendary SUB 300 is now reinterpreted in carbon. The SUB 300 Aqua Lung US Divers pays tribute to a rich past while reconnecting with Aqua Lung: the brand that embraced the SUB concept in the early days, through an official partnership. The SUB 300 Aqua Lung US Divers – a bridge from the past to the future. 

Forged In Carbon: New Hi-Tech Material

With a diameter of 42.5 mm, the SUB 300 Carbon Aqua Lung US Divers features a pressure-resistant titanium chamber and a screw-down crown to protect the movement. This watch is rated to a depth of 300 meters, allowing maximum freedom of undersea exploration. Its scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, treated with an antireflective coating, echoes the domed plexiglass of early SUB generations. The COSC-certified automatic movement ensures a power reserve exceeding 40 hours. 

Also a distinctive feature of this limited series of only 300 pieces: the use of carbon not only for the case but also for the dial – the discretion of black contrasts with the assertive presence of white and yellow.
