Doxa Bring Back Their Sub 600T Icon

DOXA launches the SUB 600T in stainless steel as a non-limited edition with a choice of two bezel versions – steel or ceramic –  and in the brand’s 6 emblematic colours.

The SUB 600T is immediately recognisable as a DOXA diver with its bright orange dial. At the same time, it is as much an evolution as it is a revolution. Looking back to the 80’s when it first appeared, it seemed as if there had been a parallel SUB universe. Gone is the curvy tonneau case. Instead, a hefty chamfered block with straight angles, 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. The principles of the DOXA diving tool watch attuned to its time. 

Today, more than 40 years later, DOXA is doing more than just revisiting a chapter written long ago. The Swiss brand is paying tribute to the iconic SUB 600T with a new history. After the massive 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 palette of legendary DOXA dial colours:

  • Orange: Professional
  • Silver: Searambler
  • Black: Sharkhunter
  • Navy: Caribbean
  • Yellow: Divingstar
  • Turquoise: Aquamarine

At 40mm, the case diameter of the DOXA SUB 600T remains unchanged, the smallest diameter in the family. Made of 316L stainless steel and topped with a sapphire crystal, the case, and 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 – 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 colour 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 adjustable. Also included is the exclusive ‘DOXA Fish’ symbol.
