1968 Doxa Sub 600T Spirotechnique
The Doxa brand, founded in 1889, is at the initiative of numerous innovations for the world of diving watches, including:
– the world’s first unidirectional rotating bezel with the US Navy’s No-Print Card,
– the first helium release valve (created in collaboration with Rolex and Cousteau for Doxa Conquistador and Rolex Sea-dweller),
– the colored dials, and its characteristic orange for maximum underwater visibility.
One of his great diving achievements is this Doxa sub 600T professional “Spirotechnique”.
Well preserved, while having actually dived, it has all the charm of the typical 60s diver with a strong Doxa identity, a bold rotating bezel and a screwed crown and caseback.
The dial of the watch brings out all the essential legibility for a diver with large indexes and hands coated with its original tritium. A rarer feature for the Sub 600T is the diver and “Spirotechnique” logo, signs of the collaboration between DOXA and the company AQUA LUNG – La SPIROTECHNIQUE, at the time directed by Jacques-Yves Cousteau and Émile Gagnan.
The 39mm case retains its original edges and incorporates the 2872 automatic movement.
