At Baselworld 2019, Doxa delivered a campaign of shock and awe with the release of a solid gold SUB 200 T.Graph that left Felix in the firm belief that the world was a better place for its existence. Today they have announced another SUB 200 T.Graph limited edition, this time in stainless steel, making it a much more affordable option than the circa AUD $100K the gold piece was asking.
What makes the Doxa SUB 200 T.Graph stainless steel limited edition special is the historic Valjoux 7734 chronograph movement that Doxa have used. Stored by Doxa for decades, the brand has fully refurbished these hand-wound movements to working order. Beating at 18,000 vibrations per hour, and offering 45 hours of power reserve, the movement features a date window at 6 o’clock and has two sub-dials, one with running seconds and the other as a 30-minute chronograph counter.
The classic Doxa cushion case shape is 43mm in diameter and 15mm tall, making it faithful to the original from 1969. The bright orange dial is another classic example of Doxa design, reportedly easier to read underwater than a black dial. As with the gold version released earlier this year, the dial features super legible block hour markers with lume that matches the hands. The watch will arrive on a beads-of-rice bracelet that features a dive extension.
Another interesting feature of this Doxa is the uni-directional rotating bezel with a no-decompression dive table, showing the minutes in black numerals and depth in orange numerals. This allows a diver to quickly and easily calculate the amount of time they can spend at a certain depth without needing to decompress.
With only 300 pieces available in this limited edition, fans of the brand will need to move quickly to get their hands on one. Priced at approximately AUD $8000 (listed for 4900 euro), the Doxa SUB 200 T.Graph stainless steel limited edition will be available for purchase from September 2.
