At Baselworld 2019, Doxa showed up with its hands brimming with curiosities, which included absolutely contradicting models. One was the unbelievably costly ($70K) and restricted Sub 200 T.Graph Anniversary Edition , a strong gold chronograph. The second was a little and available dive watch, with a cool vintage-roused plan, the Sub 200 130th Anniversary – quickly sold out as it was restricted to only 130 pieces. Be that as it may, it was, truth be told, only a hors d’oeuvre for what’s coming now, the new Doxa Sub 200 Collection. Vivid, available, cool-looking…
With its two models of Baselworld 2019, Doxa figured out how to make some noise… But not for similar reasons. The gold Sub 200 T.Graph positively created conversations since its sticker price shared nothing practically speaking with the remainder of the brand’s creation – and truly, it was more costly than a large portion of the top of the line watches introduced at BW2019. The subsequent model, then again, was a subject of conversation for the correct reasons: a pleasantly executed, all around planned and decently evaluated dive watch, yet confined to an exceptionally set number of watches. Fortunately this watch was the antecedent of a customary collection that is like the restricted release, however now in a wide cluster of tones – all normally Doxa.
The new Doxa Sub 200 is a straightforward, straightforward dive watch with exemplary specs and a marginally vintage-situated plan. The case, with its wound drags and cleaned slope, measures 42mm in distance across and 14mm in tallness – present day extents. It includes a domed sapphire precious stone, a screw-down steel caseback and a screw-in crown, for a nice 200m water-resistance.
The Doxa Sub 200 likewise plays on outdated vibes with a coin-edge unidirectional bezel, including a gleaming hour long addition on which the numerals and markers are loaded up with glowing material. Inside the case, a similar straightforward idea has been applied, with a Swiss programmed ETA 2824-2. Not all that much, however a decent and dependable development – particularly considering the price.
What is new on this normal Doxa Sub 200 collection is that the brand dispatches not a couple of references, but rather 12 references, with six distinct tones – all mark shades of the old Doxa index. This implies Professional Orange (the notable Doxa tone), Searambler Silver, Sharkhunter Black, Aquamarine Turquoise, Divingstar Yellow and Caribbean Navy. The dial highlights Doxa mallet hands, applied files and an outlined date window at 3 o’clock.
Last yet not least, the new Doxa Sub 200 collection is accessible either on treated steel “beads of rice” wristbands with collapsing applauds or on a FKM elastic tie with a steel pin clasp, coordinating the dial.
