Doxa has a long history of keeping their watches under the $3,000 threshold, yet their most recent watch blows that ceiling completely out of the water. The new Doxa Solid Gold Sub T. Graph Limited Edition has been priced at $70,000—but, then, what would you expect for a watch that lives up to its name by being made of solid 18k gold?
The limited edition watch is made in reference to Doxa’s 1969 Sub 200 T. Graph. The original was made of steel and had three variations. The new variation, as mentioned, is made of gold and comes with an orange face, which is a striking, almost jarring, pairing with the gold. If $70,000 is too steep a price for you, you can pick up the gold watch with a matching orange rubber strap with a gold pin buckle instead of the gold bracelet for only $43,800.
Doxa used a manually wound Valjoux 7734 movement for the watch. The indices and hands use beige SuperLuminova—a call out to the original radium of Doxa’s 1969 watch. The watch measures 43mm wide, and, as is appropriate with a diver watch, it is water resistant up to 200 metres.
The watch will be limited to only 13 examples. Why 13? Presumably to mark Doxa’s 130th anniversary, and 13 watches priced at $70k might be easier to move than 130.
