From the late 1960’s – early 1970’s a stunning Sharkhunter SUB 300T diver from DOXA’s [Swiss] Synchron era, that has been professionally serviced by Localtime.
This one was made for Aqualung U.S. Divers. The large C-Type stainless steel case is in excellent condition, houses an ETA Cal. 2783 with date and measures in at 42mm or 45mm including the crown at 3h. The dial [more info below], set of 3 hands and bezel are simply stunning. It is wearing a Doxa SUB 300 ‘expando’ beads-of-rice steel bracelet which is also in excellent condition and fits my 7.5″ wrist comfortably. I have included many photos, including some closeup snapshots I took just for fun, but also to allow you to enjoy the lovely details of this fine timepiece.
As with all the watches that are serviced 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. The last photo shows a few that are currently in my stock.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING ADDITIONAL AND VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION: By now you must have noticed and probably wondered why I keep referring to this watch as a ‘Sharkhunter’ when we all know a silver dial clearly mean a ‘Searambler’. To put it simply, this is a Searambler with a wrong model name! As it is well documented in Dr. Peter Millar’s books, there are a few SUBs around with a ‘wrong’ dial colour/model name combination. Millar’s assumption [that you can read in the link provided in one of my images] is that these were factory ‘misprinted’ dials. In that period it was not uncommon to see this. Watch companies did not waste any parts. They put them to good use. Watch model catalogues were either not existent or very basic in the old days, so for a retailer to receive a watch with a wrong ‘combination’ was something that probably would have gone unnoticed or not thought about too much. Another assumption is that these were ‘early test dials’ that, again, were put to use by the company. We will probably never know the exact truth, but the fact remains that this dial, like a few others with wrong combinations, is 100% original. Furthermore and adding to its rarity, this comes with its complete set, another indication that these ‘misprints’ were actually retailed. It includes its original BOR bracelet, box, manual and price tag. I have not, personally seen any other of these watches as a complete set before, probably making this one an one of a kind and very unique and rare.
The last photo shows a few other models that are currently in my stock and is for presentation purposes only.
