DOXA SUB 600T-Graph Professional
Although the famous DOXA brand got a second boost after appearing in the famous Clive Cussler thrillers the watch was a legend already years before that. Early seventies the orange sub was starting to become a legend but that simply wasn’t enough for the tech designers team at DOXA.
A new Chronograph was born, the divers version!
DOXA had their own top of the range chronograph movement in-house already. But the question was how to make sure it kept accurate at great depths?! Making a watch waterproof wasn’t and isn’t difficult. But back in the days Chronographs combined with diving features wasn’t developed yet.
Every chronograph is operated by a pusher system, and two pushers opening (even though very tiny) are the perfect spots for water to make it’s way into the movement and cause major damage. And it’s doesn’t require a lot of brains to figure out that divers watches and water usually go together. So the trick was; “how to keep the water out?!”
DOXA SUB 600T with a new pusher system
In order to ensure water resistance on great depths, the team of DOXA has designed a revolutionary new pusher system. Together with the technicians of Jenny watches special gaskets were developed that fitted around the pushers.
The marvelous result was a chronograph that due to the use of impermeable pushers was functioning on the surface even just after a dive . The gaskets manufactured by Jenny’s were combined with DOXA’s proven SUB case and together they created a “divers dry suit” for the SUB 600T movement. And like any dry suit they kept the movement working, safe and dry.
Especially to commemorate a milestone in the history of DOXA the fortieth anniversary of the original DOXA SUB, DOXA proudly presented the SUB600T-Graph 40th Anniversary. This amazing divers watch features a patented no-decompression bezel and is driven by a specially modified very high grade ETA 2894 self-winding movement.
