As part of their 50th Anniversary Collection, Doxa recreated 1967’s SUB 300 Sharkhunter. Doxa only made 300 of this 42.5-millimeter COSC-certified watch, and they were trusting enough to let me dive with #107 in Bermuda this past summer.
Nothing looks or wears like a Doxa. Iconic divers like the similarly styled Seiko Turtle and the Bulova Devil Diver somehow fail to be as eccentric as the Sharkhunter. The Doxa is so odd that it made no sense until I landed in Bermuda, heaved my SCUBA gear over my shoulder, and walked outside. Under Bermuda’s famously deep blue sky, warm sun, and tropical foliage, the Sharkunter’s peculiar beauty and sole purpose as a dive tool began to reveal themselves. Underwater the next day, the Sharkhunter sprung to life as an incredibly legible, thoroughly professional, and easy-wearing dive watch.
