Introducing the Doxa Army in Steel
At the end of April this year we witnessed the relaunch of the almost forgotten Doxa Army, which came with a black ceramic case based on its Sub 300T model in a very limited edition of 100 units that shortly after being put on the market flew and made the delights of the lucky few who managed to grab it.
Four months later, two variants of standard production now appear that can alleviate the disappointment of all those who were unable to buy at the beginning of the year. It’s clear that the two new variants don’t have the stealthy look of the recent black ceramic version, but they do boast many of the Doxa Army’s features, namely the beige dial with black and orange accents and the much-desired “Army” insignia.
The two new Doxas Army now come in a stainless steel case with a brushed finish, one more conservative with a steel bezel and black ceramic insert and a more contemporary one with a bronze bezel and hunter green ceramic insert, with minute scale and numerals filled with luminescent material.
Inside it comes with the ETA 2824 automatic movement, which is very similar to the Sellita SW220-1 that was fitted to the April limited edition, operating at 28,800 Vph and offering up to 42 hours of power reserve, a slight increase compared to the 38 hours offered by the Sellita.
The new diver watches are offered with a “Beads of Rice” steel bracelet or rubber strap both with folding clasp and dive extension, either option includes an extra Nato camouflage strap. The base price is €2,050 for the all-steel version with the rubber strap option, plus €40 if you opt for the steel bracelet and €200 for the steel and bronze variant.
