So without further ado, here it is: The sub-$1,000 Doxa diver that mixes classic dive watch styling with a taste of Doxa's truly colorful character. For those who haven't had the product page bookmarked since it was launched, the Sub 200 is 42mm wide with a steel case, solid steel caseback, and bubble-domed sapphire crystal contributing to a 14mm thickness. Lug to lug is 45mm, the lug width is 19mm (boo), and it is offered on either a steel "beads of rice" style bracelet or a color-matched rubber strap. Water-resistant to 200 meters with a signed screw-down crown, like most Doxas, the Sub 200 comes in your choice of several colors.
Doxa has specific names for their dial colors, including "Sharkhunter" (black), "Searambler" (silver), "Caribbean" (mid-tone blue), "Divingstar" (yellow), "Aquamarine" (turquoise), and what is arguably their signature color, "Professional" (orange). Unlike many of the brand's most iconic models, which feature a steel twin-scale "no deco" bezel, the Sub 200 uses a black bezel insert with color-matched markings. While the orange coloring of the Sub 200 is quite a bit different than the orange coloring I've experienced on other Professional Doxa models (more on that in a moment), the dial and the bezel colors are quite nicely matched (which can't be all that easy to do).
