The Doxa Army is a “military” version of the Doxa Sub 300 and this one is in brand new livery, giving the classic watch an updated and decidedly retro look.

Dox describes their watch thuswise:

Still within the framework of its military collaboration with the Swiss Army, DOXA developed a dedicated tool watch, aptly named “Army” that was marketed for the first time in 1968 – “The ideal watch for military divers.” Recognizable with its black case, black bezel with black insert and sand-beige dial, the watch continues to ensure excellent readability underwater.

This new model is the first in stainless steel after the limited edition release of 100 pieces in black ceramit. The watch, which will be sold at Watches of Switzerland, is non-limited but features the same black, beige, and orange color scheme.

Personally, I’m smitten but the design can definitely be offputting. The price, however, isn’t too bad – about $2,090.00 – and it comes in a fascinating bronze bezel version with hunter green insert along with the standard all steel version. Generally, it’s a cool update to an even cooler watch.
