Doxa makes a good diver and, while some might be a little put off by the styling of the DOXA Army Watches of Switzerland Edition, it might turn a few heads if you strap it on with your fatigues. Based on an earlier military design, the DOXA Army features a brown and orange color scheme with a black oxide case.

“The DOXA Army is due to its history with the Swiss Army, and its unusual original design–one of the most sought-after vintage DOXA pieces for collectors. It is truly a pleasure and an honour to call this cult model of our brand back to active duty with this new Limited Edition. This reissue remains painstakingly faithful to the original design, with the black matte ceramic case and COSC-certified precision movement adding a subtle dimension of materials and performance that is in tune with our times. Following the official recognition of the Swiss Army Divers by Swiss Federal Councillor Viola Amherd six months ago, we feel proud and privileged to celebrate not only an exceptional watch born more than 50 years ago, but also the excellent collaboration with our partner ‘Watches of Switzerland’.” said Jan Edöcs, CEO of DOXA.

To be clear, this is a standard 300T diver with some definitely military styling. It’s $4,500 – quite a bit for a standard three-hander – but if it’s your cup of tea (or MRE) then by all means check it out.
