The Doxa designers and engineers tested various iterations of their Sub 300T in the deep waters of Lake Neuchâtel. They came to the conclusion that the orange dial was the most legible at 30 feet below the surface.
IN WHAT FUCKING UNIVERSE?!
Though the orange dial was born of function...
...it's a disfunction. Yeah, maybe you didn't know that, Donkeyboyos.
Oh, wait, you did!
Contrary to the belief current when the first Doxa SUB was designed, that orange would be the most visible color during a dive, it turns out orange actually becomes a dull grey in as little as 15 or 20 feet of water, thanks to the fact that as you descend, water filters out red and yellow light first.
By Jove, their take on things is as consistent as the plot of a Clive Cussler novel...
