History of DOXA SUB 300T watches
Montres DOXA S. A was established in 1889 by Georges Ducommun in the small Swedish town of Le Locle. Over the years, the company began producing exceptional pocket watches that boast a reputation for curating professional Swiss-grade timepieces that stand out from the crowd.
DOXA’s energy and ambition for innovation and constant improvement led them to become the standard equipment in Bugatti’s racing cars in the early 20th century. From this day, the 8-day DOXA calibre was born, setting the industry standard for instrument panels in automobiles, ships and airplanes.
Also, they have long been recognised for their aesthetic designs, which saw the production of some exceptional dress watches in the early 1900s. Towards the second half of the century, the brand had also cemented its position in the sports watch market, with the professional grade SUB dive watch.
In 1969, DOXA launched the SUB 300T Conquistador, the first general public diver’s watch equipped with a new helium release valve. more than 50 years later, the new SUB 300T presented in September 2019 pays tribute to the groundbreaking original.
Today, the collection includes some of the most desirable luxury timepieces available on the market rivalling the likes of Rolex and Omega. With a diverse range of models available for collectors, beginners and professionals alike, the DOXA watch collection remains unrivalled for its professional standard and one-of-a-kind designs.
