In the ‘80s, DOXA presents the SUB 600T. When it comes out, it is immediately recognizable as a DOXA diver with its bright orange dial. At the same time, it is as much an evolution as it is a revolution. Gone is the curvy tonneau case. Instead, a hefty, chamfered block with straight angles, an offset crown at 4 o'clock.
More than 40 years later, DOXA is bringing out the SUB 600T in a non-limited edition to complete the DOXA SUB line-up. The reborn SUB 600T comes in stainless steel with the choice of a steel or black ceramic bezel insert, 6 vibrant colors and either a stainless-steel bracelet or an FKM rubber strap to match the dial color – in all, 24 combinations will be available.
The SUB 600T with 3 hands and date remains true as ever to the aesthetic of the SUB 600T that defined DOXA in the 80s and became an icon of its era. At the same time, it comes with features that make this the reliable, desirable and eminently wearable diver’s watch for today.
At 40mm, the case diameter of the DOXA SUB 600T remains unchanged – judging by the perceived expanse of the dial, one would never guess that this is in fact the smallest diameter in the family. Made of 316L stainless steel and topped with a sapphire crystal, the case, and thus the movement it protects, is pressure-resistant to 60 bar (600 meters). This leaves plenty of margin, even for the most ambitious diver as to the depths to explore. The crown is still at 4 o'clock and the patented rotating bezel unidirectional as it should be – 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 the new 316L stainless steel bracelet that brings a ‘modern vintage’ touch to the DOXA collection. Of course, the exclusive ‘DOXA Fish’ symbol is featured as well.
