DOXA SUB 300T Searambler Diver's Watch
Featured here from our Vintage Divers' watches collection is this extremely rare and modestly used, often considered one of the 'holy grails' of divers watches' among collectors - The DOXA SUB 300T 'Searambler' from the late 60s/early 70s in distinctive 'Genta' design. Notably, most of these already rare watches available for sale today, are in fair to poor condition given the fact they were usually bought for actual utility, harsh conditions and not for cocktails ot show off. This iconic watch houses a bullet proof ETA based automatic DOXA by Synchron caliber and is one of the most desirable 'Super Compressor' models.
