About DOXA Watches
With a heritage as deep as the ocean it explores, Doxa, a timeless maestro in watchmaking, has aged gracefully like fine wine, crafting dive watches that stand as a testament to its enduring legacy.
As a formidable contender in the competitive luxury sports watch landscape, Doxa has been producing dive watches that not only weather the ages but also captivate the hearts of those who seek enduring elegance, a tradition that has echoed through the pulse of generations.
The year is 1889, and Switzerland is a hotbed of horological activity. The race for more accurate timekeeping (fueled by developments such as the marine chronometer) and the quest for precise measurements in various scientific fields spurred a wave of innovation that catalyzed advancements in navigation, astronomy, and numerous scientific disciplines.
Against the backdrop of a world undergoing significant technological advancements, Georges Ducommun establishes Doxa in Le Locle, Switzerland.
Inspired by the growing popularity of recreational diving, Doxa collaborated with professional diver Jacques Cousteau and engineer Claude Wesly in 1967 to develop a timepiece tailored to the requirements of divers.
The result was the Doxa SUB300t, a distinctive and highly functional dive watch that quickly gained acclaim for its durability, readability, and suitability for underwater exploration. The success was so profound that it garnered significant attention and adoption among U.S. divers and established Doxa's prominence in the dive watch market moving forward.
Doxa faced challenges, including the quartz crisis and participation in a group consolidation effort that did not succeed, leading to a change in ownership. The Jenny family from Switzerland is now reported as the owner of the Doxa brand. Today, Doxa stands as a beacon of Swiss watchmaking excellence, driven by the same passion and inspiration that fueled its inception over a century ago.
Doxa's captivating watch collections redefine sports timepieces with a remarkable range of professional dive watches boasting water resistance capabilities from 200 meters to an impressive 4000 meters.
Catering to the needs of adventurers and enthusiasts alike, every watch in the collections below is a masterpiece, blending timeless design with cutting-edge craftsmanship. We have the:
