why the DOXA SUB 200 is THE value proposition of 2019

Creating a timepiece that needs to pay homage while simultaneously capturing the imagination of the horological community is no mean feat … in fact, it’s fraught with failure.

Time and time again, we’ve seen new watches based on vintage timepieces be unveiled, only to have them fall flat on their crystal-domed faces.

A good dive wartch requires high polish and a BOR bracelet. It's got to be orange too. This fucker checks all the boxes. PayPal sent mate!

Interestingly (and, I'm sure I'll regret typing this in the morning), these don't completely fucking blow. I shouldn't fucking like these at all, but they aren't completely fucking awful.

This is probably the Canadian Club talking.
My little brain can't even comprehend how deep that is.

Always wanted a Doxa but just could never bring myself to pull the trigger.

I like the look of these for a dress watch but for a diver????

I liked the EMG/HKED Nemo dive watch better. Especially the price. If doesn't have a date complication but how long are you going be underwater anyways?
