Dive Watch Fundamentals – DOXA, a sleeping giant in the dive watch world that is slowly waking up…

DOXA is a Swiss watchmaker deeply submerged in the annals of dive watch history. It all started in 1967 at the world watch fair, Baselworld, where, after three years of painstaking research and development, DOXA unveiled the SUB 300 – the first dive watch of its kind. Water resistant to 300 metres, the 45mm case was hewn from a solid piece of stainless steel, ensuring case construction was impervious to water. The SUB 300 was also the first DOXA to…

VIDEO: The Top 10 watches of Virtual Baselworld 2020, inc. Hublot, Longines, Seiko, Casio and Hamilton

Any Seinfeld fans will know what I'm talking about when I say that the Home Delivery Watch Fair, where we re-created both SIHH (or Watches & Wonders, as it's known now) and Baselworld, was more akin to Kramer's version of the Merv Griffin show than it was a real watch fair.

"Why is he yelling?" someone in the YouTube comments has already asked. And it's a good question. In my first appearance in Every Watch Tells A Story, I am shouting like a person in a particularly noisy pub. That's because, for the shoots that comprise this series that's what the Time+Tide office turns into. A particularly noisy pub.  It's the excitement. It's the enthusiasm. And yes, it's the refreshments that are always flowing. These events, usually based around Club get-togethers or,…

HANDS-ON: The DOXA SUB 300 Carbon Aqua Lung US Divers limited edition, a bold statement already creating buzz

It was a Friday afternoon last November when I met Jan Edöcs, the CEO of Doxa S.A. He was here for the launch of the brand in Australia, and not only brought the full collection of watches from 2019, but he was also generous enough to share what they had in store for 2020, including early renders of the DOXA SUB 300 Carbon Aqua Lung US Divers, which as of now is available to pre-order here. ** Rumours are circulating…
