A stunning ‘Professional’ SUB 300T diver from DOXA’s [Swiss] early ‘sailship’ era for Aqualung U.S. Divers, that has been professionally restored and fully serviced by Localtime.
The large C-Type stainless steel case is in excellent unpolished condition, houses a Doxa Cal. 118 [ETA Cal. 2472] with date and measures in at 42mm or 45mm including the crown at 3h. The signature orange dial, set of 3 hands and bezel are simply stunning. It is wearing its own BOR ‘Expandro’ bracelet. I have included many photos of the watch, snapshots from the service bench, but also some closeup snapshots I took just for fun and also to allow you to enjoy the lovely details of this fine timepiece. The last photo shows some other DOXA’s that I currently have in stock and is for presentation purposes only.
As with all the watches that are handled by Localtime, the BIN price includes a written 6-month written warrantee from the date of purchase. Feel free to contact me for whatever questions you might have.
Important Note On Condition: Sometimes I am asked what I exactly mean with ‘professionally inspected by Localtime’. Here is my theory on vintage watches: as a purveyor of vintage watches, my effort is to always do only what is needed to the watch. I do not buy ‘junk’ watches to resell. I am choosy with my purchases and always sell watches that are, to my knowledge, authentic and in good condition. I first inspect the watch, both visually (cosmetically) and then mechanically. If I judge that the watch is not yet in need of a full service then I do not put the watch through a service which, by the way, entails a lot of risks too. Instead, I give it what I call my ‘Spa’ treatment which will include a cleaning, changing of gaskets, oiling, lubricating and mechanical testing. If the plexi is heavily scratched or discoloured and it can not be cleaned, I change it. If the crown is wrong or worn, I also change it. Now, if the watch is in need of a full service, then my ‘professionally inspected’ description becomes ‘professionally serviced’. In both cases, I include a written warrantee with my buy it now price and I always describe what I have changed, if anything, on the watch.
Important Note On Straps/Bracelets: The straps I use on my watches [leather, canvas, suede, rubber] are always brand new, unless otherwise mentioned and, in most cases, I also sell them separately in my store, in different colours and sizes. In the case of metal bracelets, if the watch is NOS, the bracelet is also unused. If the watch is pre-owned with its original bracelet, then the bracelet is also pre-owned, unless otherwise mentioned. Either way, if in doubt, please ask.
Extra: Try my ‘waffle-pattern’ rubber straps! I have found these straps to be very comfortable and a great match especially for sporty or diver watches. They come in 4 sizes [16-18-20-22mm], 6 colours of rubber [black, blue, brown, orange, red and yellow] and 6 different colours of stitching [white, grey, blue, orange, yellow and red]. The straps themselves are have a ‘waffle’ pattern on top and a ‘grooved’ pattern on the bottom. Their length is 97mm on the buckle end [including the steel buckle] and 118mm on the tail end; so not short but not too long either. They have too floating keepers with the same rubber ‘waffle’ pattern. You can see more information and photos of these straps under eBay item number 202061460884 and in the last photo here. Feel free to contact me for whatever questions you might have.
