One of the lesser known versions of the DOXA sports watches from the 1970’s would be the DOXA SUB Army reference 11891-4.
Very few spotted and even less documentation to be found.
Some claim it to be a Swiss military watch… What is real and what is not, I do not know but here is my take on this “mythical rare bird”…

We envisioned a “Biggie vs. Tupac” style watch beef complete with posses and tough talk. Frankly, we weren’t all that off course. There have been shots fired with Synchron gaining a first mover advantage over a larger related, yet unrelated brand. If you came here just to read a watch review, you’re probably asking, “what the hell is Mike talking about? ” As the retired wide receiver Terrell Owens once said, “Get your popcorn ready!”
