In the aftermath of the headline-grabbing, if considerably weird, Baselworld had by Doxa, a stable entry was wanted to remind a trustworthy viewers that the model had not forgotten its roots. In reality, in gentle of the discharge of the limited-edition Doxa SUB 200 T.Graph in stainless steel, the stable 18-karat gold model launched in Basel appears a way more forgivable anomaly. Why? Because this launch, restricted to 300 items (versus the 13 gold items made accessible in March), is strictly what Doxa is thought — and really a lot liked — for.
Just because the gold piece was, the Doxa SUB 200 T.Graph in stainless steel is powered by unique Valjoux 7734.

While we might take Doxa’s signature orange dial without any consideration today, it was sort of radical in its day and stood in stark distinction to the extra conventional black or white faces that had preceded it.
50 years on from the Doxa SUB 200 T.Graph’s unique launch, the model has seen match to replace this iconic mannequin. The new mannequin measures 43mm throughout, 15mm tall, and 46mm from lug-to-lug. It has a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, a water-resistance of 200 meters, and options the patented unidirectional timing bezel, which, unusually, exhibits the dive-time in minutes, in addition to the depth in meters, so dive-time with out decompression stops might be calculated with ease.
The conventional, semi-matte orange dial has an unobtrusive date window at 6 o’clock and two sub-dials positioned alongside the horizontal axis. The going seconds sub-dial is positioned at 9 o’clock, whereas a 30-minute counter for the chronograph perform is located at three o’clock. The centrally mounted chronograph seconds hand, the hour and minute hands, and the hour markers are all full of beige “Light Old Radium” Super-LumiNova.
