By TLex Here's the official word from DOXA on their new Sapphire Bezel version of the SUB 4000T which saw its release last year. The 4000T received some ridicule for its re-named power-reserve indicator 'SAFE DIVE' (not sure why they had to name it anything to be honest) but not half as much as they've been getting of late for their recent DOXAsian models. Regardless the 4000T Sapphire is the type of honest-to-goodness DOXA that we all know and love - a fine looking diver!
From DOXA Joining the SUB 4000T collection, the latest dive watch from Doxa comes equipped with a sapphire crystal bezel. Unidirectional, as professional dive watch standards require, it indicates decompression stops in feet to guarantee performance and security in the most extreme conditions.
Seasoned divers will also appreciate the luminescent hourmarkers and hands, the helium valve at 9 o'clock, and water-resistance to 1,220 metres. Not to mention its sporty good looks! Proposed as a 200-piece limited series.
