Hands-On: Doxa SUB 300 Searambler Review - 50th Anniversary Edition50 years ago, Doxa introduced their SUB 300 in Basel. An orange dial model was called 'Professional', the black dial 'Sharkhunter' along with the silver dial 'Searambler'. About a year later, Doxa introduced the SUB 300T collection (which has a slightly bigger case, larger dial and also a thicker bezel) and added a yellow version also, the 'Divingstar'. Some tips i have here today is the Doxa SUB 300 Searambler, a remake in the original 1967 model. Doxa now offers their Sharkhunter and Professional to be a 50th anniversary edition.Doxa SUB 300 SearamblerMichael already did an outstanding write-up within the vintage Doxa 300T Sharkhunter, where he discussed its history and the SUB 300(T) heritage watches , so I will keep to the modern Doxa SUB 300 Searambler for the moment. I will reference the past maybe once or twice, but my intention should be to discuss the watch since it is today. Naturally, it would be impossible in addition to certain parts of the history as only the idea is practical, but there'll quit much comparing of new and old.I do think the Doxa forum on WatchUseek was among the initial official forums with that platform. I am a while follower of WatchUseek and was previously one of their moderators (in a far past). Walking out to that the Doxa forum was quite crowded with fans, but never did I actually go into this watch. Not really that I did not like its appearance, on the other hand was too centered on other brands and replica watches. It did have something 'magical' regarding it and it also always felt like there is a substantial following for this brand.Because i received the Doxa SUB 300 Searambler captured, the 50th anniversary model (limited by 300 pieces), the primary things to notice is the bezel obviously. It's not your family uni-directional 60 minute-scale bezel, this features another scale: depth (in Ft). As Mike said in their earlier article around the Doxa SUB 300(T): "Simply put, once the bezel is adjusted, by gripping those sawtooth ridges, to exhibit the start a dive (the inner ring shows elapsed minutes like every dive bezel), a diver then reaches his/her maximum depth. Checking the depth meter, the diver then is the outer ring on the Doxa bezel to discover what number of minutes he/she can spend under water while not having to decompress.".Doxa SUB 300 Searambler For the WristWhen you add the Doxa SUB 300 Searambler on the wrist, it feels a bit strange in the beginning (but not inside a negative way or whatsoever). I want to provide you with the reason. The watch includes a 42.5mm diameter, one such size and huge enough to be wearable and sufficiently little to represent that vintage look & feel. However, the diameter of the dial is quite a bit smaller. There is undoubtedly a C-shaped case that is unique for both sides of the double bezel (diving scale within minutes and feet, as described above) and then you have the relatively small dial aperture. The dial measures 25.5mm across. The boxed sapphire crystal is an excellent feature, but doesn't magnify the relatively small dial as being a plexi crystal would do.Whenever you can look past this, or get accustomed to it, it's not necessarily an extremely huge problem. I never had the pleasure to use and check out a vintage Doxa SUB 300(T) before I received this watch, in order that it required half a day to obtain familiar with this. Notably if you enjoy Doxa, vintage or new, Perhaps you simply won't have to get employed to this phenomenon.Orange HandThe dial from the Doxa SUB 300 Searambler is perfectly readable, despite its smaller size. The large orange minute hand and also the smaller black hour hand. The silver colored dial version was the only SUB 300(T) model that included a substantial orange minute hand, that is the last color you will observe until the (underwater) world goes black.Around the dial find luminous hour markers, Doxa Automatic developed in the left upper side and SUB 300 Searambler from the lower right side. At 3 o'clock, a framed date aperture using a white disc and black writing.1960's C-caseI love these C-cases that happen to be so typical for that 1960's. We have and have absolutely had several replica watches myself using this type of case shape. It is actually marks a certain era, therefore, if consumers are commenting with your watch, it is usually simply because they still find it a well used piece. The conclusion in the SUB 300's case is very nicely done. The top case is brushed, whereas along side it has a polished finish. The ring relating to the carved bezel and top of the case also has a refined finish. Around the pictures below (click for larger images) you can see that the case consists of several parts, for example the screw-down case back with Doxa logo in bas-relief. The way it is feels solid built and breathes quality. ETA MovementInside this Doxa SUB 300 Searambler is ETA's caliber 2824-2. If I am informed correctly, the first Doxa SUB 300(T) models also used ETA movements (caliberĀ 2852). Doxa isn't an manufacture nor does it make believe you be. Sincere movements being used to get the job done. Operating the movement goes through large Doxa signed crown. The crown is screwed-in, to make sure water resistance with this professional diver. Unscrew it, plus in the 0 position you may wind the movement manually. The primary position is used to set the date and also the second position for correcting time. The ETA 2824-2 movement only hacks in position 2, certainly. Push the crown back two positions and push and turn concurrently and you are obviously all set to go and done. Any professional watchmaker can service this movement, which is a great thing. True back is screwed-in, and uses common cut-aways so any generic case opener will perform.Beads of RiceVery cool would be the beads of rice bracelet. 7 links side-by-side which often both the outer links are larger than the others and have a brushed finish. The five links inside center are polished. The bracelet in the Doxa SUB 300 Searambler measures 22mm with the end-pieces and 20mm on the clasp. It is a very comfortable bracelet, I've got to say. It connects perfectly towards the C-shaped case. The clasp includes a hidden extension part, to use over your wetsuit. The clasp shows the Doxa brand name and incorporates a flip-lock for safety reasons. The extension is around 10mm. A little too much if you want to make use of it to resize your bracelet if your climate is hot, but enough for usage with the wetsuit. However, micro-adjustment on the bracelet could be done having a paperclip or toothpick and adjust the position of the bracelet inside the clasp.Backlinks are screwed, so proper resizing (should you should try taking some links out) is possible yourself. Even though bracelet is nicely done and reflects the original beads of rice bracelets, the extension clasp does feel a bit flimsy. You can actually use though and does its job I guess. When it is hidden inside the clasp, you simply won't be bothered by its looks.Retro FeelI have had the Doxa SUB 300 Searambler for some time, and in this time around Furthermore, i tried the Doxa SUB 300T from my colleague Balazs. It confirmed what I already thought. This anniversary edition Doxa resembles the look and feel of the original pieces perfectly. It is just like time stood still or, you found a different Old Stock Doxa SUB 300 somewhere and put it on your wrist. Retro replica watches are hot, even as saw especially this year in Basel, that brands like Longines, Tissot and Oris are grabbing to their heritage. With success, I might add. The Omega Trilogy (60th anniversary editions on the Seamaster 300, Speedmaster'57 and Railmaster) is a great example, but still you'll discover differences while using original replica watches very easily. Same applies for the Seiko '62MAS' re-edition. All pleasant retro pieces, but placed the original watch beside it and are able to tell the differences without an excessive amount of effort. That's fine certainly, as things changed or are simply just unavailable anymore. However, using this type of Doxa SUB 300 Searambler, it really is almost too helpful to be true. best replica rolex watches If you are being hunting for a watch which is simply 'unchanged' (except some minor details, like the use of Super-LumiNova as opposed to tritium), but furthermore, who's really wears like a vintage watch, check out the Doxa SUB 300 50th anniversary collection.To get a market price of $2450 USD, you will receive an extremely interesting and well-constructed watch. Nicely finished and made with eye for detail (along with the past). The ETA movement is really a reliable caliber and will likely never fail for you. My example came in an exceptionally nice DOXA tube case plus an extra rubber strap.Looking on eBay, it appears that the initial Doxa SUB 300 (no T) replica watches niche for quite a lot more. A later series, with 'T', can be found for approx. a similar quantity of a different 50th anniversary model. If you're able to get a nice one, which is. rolex outlet For that into account, this 50th anniversary is definitely an interesting proposition.More info via Doxa on-line.
