DESCRIPTION :

This is an one (1) Pc Authentic DOXA 300 meters Shark-hunter Automatic SUPER WATERPROOF Professional Divers Watch 1970s , First generation large cased like the OMEGA 300M style.

this is very collectable gear item nowaday. 

DOXA presents the SUB 300T diver’s watch. The innovations of the first watch (water-resistant to 300 metres/1000 feet) with a no-decompression limit table on the bezel , the original bezel is correctly calibrated in Feet and rotates uni-directionally, as it should. The original non-screw down crown is correct for this model and the case is signed with the Synchron logo on the case-back. A highly desirable professional divers watch as worn by the great Jaques Cousteau himself! 

 

In the late 1960s Doxa realized that diving was becoming more popular, especially given the success of early innovators like Rolex and Blancpain in the early 1950s. In fact the success of Rolex's Submariner and Blancpain's Fifty Fathoms helped originate a market for followers such as Doxa. This may have been due to the efforts of Jacques Cousteau and increased general awareness of the sport. Doxa decided to devote resources to create a watch to be used for diving. Doxa also consulted with divers, including Cousteau, then chairman of the U.S. Divers Co. and Claude Wesly (a Cousteau companion and the first man to spend seven days thirty-three feet underwater). A staff of engineers and professional divers was assembled to create a watch with features important to the diving industry. The Sub300T was purchased in quantity by U.S. Divers Co, who resold the watch in the United States. It was an instant hit with divers and quickly sold out upon its introduction.

 

This is choice for the spec-ops, Navy Seal, UDT, SAS and Australian Divers. Approximately over 20 years, these watches earned them the right to be used by armies such as Czech, Polish, French Navy , German Federal, some Nordic countries, SAS and Australian Divers and also by the US Navy ( SEAL , underwater demolition team , frogman). 

this time is opportunity to collect the true luxury !  

this is very collectable gear item nowaday.
