WatchCharts Weekly #11
July 15th, 2020
DOXA entered the dive watch scene late, with the release of their SUB in 1967. While the original 1950s trio of dive watches from Blancpain, Rolex, and Omega could be considered the founders of the dive watch formula, it was DOXA that perfected it. The SUB is known for its bright orange dial, designed for maximum underwater visibility as tested in Neuchatel Lake.

DOXA may have missed the '50s, but the SUB made a big entrance a decade later with 300m water resistance and the first helium escape valve. Find out how this watch gave DOXA its cult following.
