One of the big names in dive watches for many decades is Doxa. Their new Sub 200 C-GRAPH is well worth a look if you’re serious about venturing underwater and want a chronograph. At nearly three grand (US dollars) it’s expensive for a 200m dive watch. But it offers a very high build quality and over a century of history behind that Doxa name. Here’s the press info;
In the line-up of diver’s watches developed by DOXA, the SUB 200 C-GRAPH stands out as a mechanically wound chronograph, recognizable by its three counters. It comes equipped with an automatic Swiss movement that provides a power reserve of approximately 45 hours.The chronograph function includes a central chronograph hand that rotates once around the dial every 60 seconds, a 30-minute chronograph counter positioned at 3 o’clock, and a 12-hour chronograph counter positioned at 6 o’clock.
With a diameter of 45 mm, made of the highest quality 316L stainless steel, the SUB 200 C GRAPH comes with a domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and a unidirectional rotating bezel. Featuring a screw-down crown, the watch is water-resistant to 200 meters (about 650 feet). All dive-related markings have a Super-LumiNova® luminescent coating to ensure optimum readability in low-visibility conditions.
Starting 2020, the SUB 200 C-GRAPH will be available in 6 colors. It can be ordered either with the iconic ‘beads of rice’ stainless steel bracelet or a sporty rubber strap, with distinctive DOXA cues on both sides, to match the dial color. The folding clasp features the exclusive DOXA fish symbol and has a diving extension to accommodate the thickness of a wetsuit.
