A year ago, DOXA hit a grand slam with their now sold out 50th Anniversary SUB 300 Professional “heritage” reissue, a watch that regarded the first DOXA Sub perfectly (quip expected). Today, DOXA is circling back to a fabulous hammer of a declaration with the DOXA SUB 300 “Black Lung” restricted release, a watch that observes DOXA’s significant relationship with Aqua-Lung–the famous scuba gear company–as well as a memorable and uncommon jumper conceived of that organization. Aqua-Lung spearheaded the primary independent submerged breathing mechanical assembly (SCUBA), which obviously prompted extended opportunities for submerged investigation and to a blast in sporting plunging. In 1967, DOXA presented the primary SUB, an uncommonly planned device watch for jumpers, and it immediately acquired the endorsement of those early plunging pioneers. Later that very year, DOXA and Aqua-Lung would collaborate to make a model SUB with a yellow and black Aqua-Lung logo imprinted in the lower left quadrant of the famous orange dial.
This unique model was nicknamed the “Black Lung” by gatherers regarding the logo, and it has since become an inconceivably uncommon and alluring watch in the gathering community as just a small bunch were at any point made. The US Divers company began to appropriate DOXA watches, and numerous subsequent emphasess of the SUB would convey a standard U.S. Jumpers/Aqua-Lung logo on the dial. At last, U.S .Divers and Aqua Lung would combine into one company under the Aqua-Lung name, and that company proceeds with today to be at the front line of plunging gear advancement and technology.
With DOXA and Aqua-Lung having a particularly rich and entwined history, it bodes well for them to come together by and by to praise that legacy. We as a whole realize that the “heritage” furor is clearing the watch business, and as a vintage watch darling, I praise the pattern. All things considered, some legacy releases are superior to other people, and this is unmistakably one of the better ones. The Black Lung is just splendid. DOXA truly nailed this one, with looks and measurements that intently copy the first. The notorious treated steel pad case is a close wonderful 42.5mm wide, and at a simple 13.4mm thick, this will truly have that vintage feel on the wrist. The orange dial with the Black Lung logo are complemented by the exemplary DOXA hands, with the large ole minute hand and tiny hour hand. This can be a look that takes becoming acclimated to, yet it is essential for the style and history of the brand.
The gem is an exceptionally domed sapphire, adding to the vintage vibe. The serrated-edge bezel has the exemplary DOXA double reason etching, with a passed time inward ring in black and the “no-decompression” scale external ring in orange.
The Black Lung is fueled by a chronometer-grind ETA 2824-2 programmed development, so no concerns in that office. The magnificent and prominently wearable DOXA strong connection dabs of-rice wristband with an incorporated wetsuit expansion polishes off the entire package.
Want one? You can pre-request one straightforwardly from the DOXA site for $2,190, with transportation foreseen to be in December of this current year. Be that as it may, don’t rest on this jewel; it’s restricted to just 300 pieces and I’m wagering they’ll go quick! Doxa
