Most who know the name Doxa associate it with dive watches with several very specific traits, among these being a unique dive table bezel and bright dial colors. The new Doxa Sub 200 C-Graph indeed has the brand's signature bevy of colorful options, but it takes a more traditional and retro dive watch approach and presents it as a chronograph. It's bold and chunky, and it's entry-level priced.
The new C-Graph follows the fun and affordable Sub 200 announced in 2019 with its vintage aesthetic and sub-$1k price point. For the C-Graph, a Swiss automatic chronograph movement — the Sellita SW-510 — means it'll have the associated size and price bump over the Sub 200, though it's significantly more affordable than comparable diver chronographs from the brand.
The Sub 200 C-Graph's steel case measures 45mm wide by 17.4mm thick and is water-resistant to 200m. Short lugs should keep it wearable, but it's a chunky beast. It's offered in Doxa's six established colors of orange, silver, black, navy, yellow and turquoise — orange being particularly significant for having established the tradition of orange dive watch dials in the the industry.
The Doxa Sub 200 C-Graph is available for $2,750 on a strap or just $40 more for a steel bracelet option in the beads-of-rice style at $2,790 — in which case the bracelet makes for the much more compelling option since it's designed to fit this watch specifically.
