1970s Legendary Sub 300T Sharkhunter Automatic Professional Diver’s Watch as worn by Jaques Cousteau. Hard to Find Black “US Divers Co” Aqualung Logo Dial. On Brand New Doxa Rubber Diver’s Strap
Rare and hard to find second generation large cased Synchron Doxa Sub 300T Sharhunter with the US divers Co. aqualung emblem on the dial. This Doxa Sharkhunter Sub 300T is all original and working perfectly. The original bezel is correctly calibrated in Feet and rotates uni-directionally, as it should. The original non-screw down crown is correct for this model and the case is signed with the Synchron logo on the case-back. A highly desirable professional divers watch as worn by the great Jaques Cousteau himself! In the late 1960s Doxa realized that diving was becoming more popular, especially given the success of early innovators like Rolex and Blancpain in the early 1950s. In fact the success of Rolex’s Submariner and Blancpain’s Fifty Fathoms helped originate a market for followers such as Doxa. This may have been due to the efforts of Jacques Cousteau and increased general awareness of the sport. Doxa decided to devote resources to create a watch to be used for diving. Doxa also consulted with divers, including Cousteau, then chairman of the U.S. Divers Co. and Claude Wesly (a Cousteau companion and the first man to spend seven days thirty-three feet underwater). A staff of engineers and professional divers was assembled to create a watch with features important to the diving industry. The Sub300T was purchased in quantity by U.S. Divers Co, who resold the watch in the United States. It was an instant hit with divers and quickly sold out upon its introduction.
