The reinterpretation of an iconic model:
The Doxa SUB 200 T.Graph
For the first time Doxa will present a limited series of a diver’s watch in 18K gold.
Each face is unique and numbered. An edition of only 13 timepieces.
An exceptional edition that comes equipped with original Valjoux 7734 movements which had been carefully preserved by Doxa for 30 years.
In 1967 at Baselworld, Doxa launched the revolutionary SUB concept, considered to be the first truly mainstream professional diver's watch.
The radical innovations it presents quickly made it a reference for professionals as well. Water-resistant until a depth of 300 meters, it is the first professional diving watch to feature a patented rotating bezel that incorporates the US Navy’s no-decompression table. This watch quickly becomes an easily recognizable legend for another key reason, too: it is the first and only diver’s watch to have an orange dial, contrasting with the conventional black or white backgrounds.
In 1969, the Doxa SUB concept was further refined with the launch of the 200 T.Graph. It remains today one of the most emblematic diving watches in watchmaking history. And the legend continues.
50 years later, for the first time Doxa unveils a reinterpretation of an iconic model as a limited 18K gold edition
The Doxa SUB 200 T.Graph will be presented for the first time in a very limited edition of only 13 units to celebrate the brand’s 130th Anniversary in 2019.
Notice to collectors: This "Anniversary" series is all the more exceptional as it comes equipped with original Valjoux 7734 movements, a historical treasure carefully preserved by Doxa for over 30 years.
Timeless gold, noble metal par excellence, is a natural choice for such an exclusive limited edition, the reincarnation of one of the most famous Swiss diver's watches, in honor of its 50th Anniversary.
With a diameter of 43mm, the case is crafted from a single block of 4N gold and topped by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.
Watertight till 20 ATM, equivalent to a depth of about 200 meters, the Doxa SUB 200 T.Graph also features the famous patented unidirectional rotating bezel with dual indication of the dive time in minutes and the depth in feet for a no-decompression ascent. At 12 o’clock on the minute ring, a bright spot of SuperLuminova.
Just like the original model, the mythical semi-matte orange dial features two subsidiary dials, the first positioned at 3 o'clock counting 30 minutes, and the second positioned at 9 o'clock counting 60 seconds. The baton-style hour and minute hands feature SuperLuminova beige "Light Old Radium" inserts, as does the tip of the second hand. The DOXA SUB 200 T.Graph's characteristic indices in black also feature SuperLuminova beige "Light Old Radium" inserts.
This Anniversary Series is equipped with the original 7734 Valjoux movements, which have been carefully preserved as a historical treasure for nearly 30 years under the guardianship of the Swiss family Jenny, owner of the Doxa brand for over twenty years.
Each caliber has been thoroughly examined, overhauled and reconditioned before being fitted into the case. Only 13 numbered copies of this special "Anniversary" model will be available for sale, each sporting an orange rubber strap. The iconic rice grain mesh bracelet will also be available in 4N gold.
