Introducing DOXA Introduces Special Edition Clive Cussler Watch, Honoring a Literary Legend and Adventurer

The SUB 300T pays homage to Clive Cussler's iconic novels and maritime exploration

DOXA, the renowned Swiss watchmaker, is proud to unveil the SUB 300T Clive Cussler special edition watch, inspired by the internationally recognized author, maritime explorer, and founder of the National Underwater and Marine Agency (NUMA), Clive Cussler. This limited edition timepiece celebrates Cussler's profound impact on both the literary world and the world of adventure.

Clive Cussler, an acclaimed American adventure novelist with over 85 books and more than 100 million copies sold, was known for his gripping tales and his deep connection to the ocean. His novels brought the DOXA brand into the spotlight, particularly the iconic orange dial dive watch, which played a pivotal role in the adventures of his fictional hero, Dirk Pitt. Just as Cussler's stories delved into historical mysteries and epic quests, the SUB 300T Clive Cussler watch reimagines the classic DOXA model, infusing it with artistic and historical elements.

The SUB 300T Clive Cussler stays true to the core characteristics of the DOXA collection while boasting a highly distinctive design. The watch features an original handmade dial reminiscent of a vintage compass, exuding a sense of nostalgia and adventure. To capture the essence of a nautical artifact's journey, the timepiece showcases an aged steel appearance applied to the watch, bracelet, clasp, and pin buckle, creating a weathered aesthetic that reflects the conditions endured during its time submerged in the depths. It serves as a symbol of adventure, discovery, and the mysteries that lie beneath the waves.

Each individual timepiece is discreetly engraved with its own unique number on the side of the bezel, ensuring exclusivity and authenticity. The 42mm diameter case is expertly crafted with faceted structures, capturing the essence of Clive Cussler's identity and commemorating his birthday through the display of the dates 7, 15, and 31 in red on the dial. Whether worn on land or at sea, the SUB 300T Clive Cussler watch boldly represents the fearless spirit of exploration and the enduring love for adventure.

Jan Edöcs, CEO of DOXA, expressed the natural synergy between Cussler's novels and DOXA watches, which became essential tools for his heroic characters. The famous orange dial dive watch continues to accompany Dirk Pitt on his daring underwater endeavors. Edöcs added, "DOXA's collaboration with Clive Cussler honors his legacy, courage, originality, and love of exploration."

Dirk Cussler, the son of Clive Cussler and an accomplished author himself, acknowledged the watch's embodiment of his father's bold and creative spirit. He conveyed his gratitude to DOXA for commemorating Clive Cussler's legacy, exemplifying his enduring courage, originality, and passion for exploration.

The deep connection between Clive Cussler and DOXA goes beyond their shared passion for adventure and maritime exploration. To honor this storied relationship, a percentage of sales from the SUB 300T Clive Cussler watch will be donated to NUMA, the organization founded by Clive Cussler in 1979. NUMA, the National Underwater and Marine Agency, has played a significant role in the discovery and surveying of shipwrecks and historical artifacts. The case of each timepiece is engraved with the names of these significant discoveries up to 2022. 

 

The Doxa SUB 300T Clive Cussler Edition is currently obtainable at selected retail outlets, as well as the brand's online boutique. This exclusive edition comes with a specific number, though no limitations on quantities have been specified. It carries a price tag of EUR 2,690, USD 2,690, or CHF 2,590. Importantly, a portion of the proceeds from this distinctive timepiece will go towards NUMA, the National Underwater and Marine Agency, an organization established by Cussler in 1979.
