The Doxa SUB 300 Aqua Lung: Better than Submariner, Seamaster, & Co.?

As usual for this video series, we’re zooming in close on a particular watch model. This time, we’re focusing on the Doxa SUB 300 Aqua Lung. Some of you may not be familiar with Doxa, while others consider their watches real classics that are on par with the Submariner, Seamaster, and other legendary divers! What’s unmistakeable about the 42.5-mm Dox SUB is its dial. Its vivid orange is hard to miss on a dive – or anywhere else, for that matter. Bold colors are Doxa’s trademark, setting their watches apart from the competition. Aside from the playful “good mood dial,” Doxa places clear emphasis on practicality. This is exemplified by the unusually large minute hand with luminous material, which allows professional divers to read the time quickly and reliably while underwater. But what is the history behind the Doxa SUB, and what does the famous sea explorer Jacques Cousteau have to do with it?

Find out more about the Doxa SUB 300 in our video! Do you consider Doxa a viable alternative to the current industry leaders? We look forward to hearing from you in the YouTube comments!
