As many of you know, Doxa holds a special place in my heart and my positions on the brand and their products can get, intense. While I’ve been puzzled by some of their releases in the past, Doxa’s latest move makes sense to me and I’m glad to see it. Today, Doxa unveiled a new smaller iteration of their iconic “T” style dive watch, a model that many collectors seem to dismiss due to its larger 42.5mm case. This new smaller version opens the door even further to enthusiasts who may be curious about the brand while weighing out their options within the growing catalog. And as we can see with this release, there are a TON of options in the way dial colors and finishes.

Let’s kick things off with a rundown of the specs. The new Doxa Sub 200T sticks to the tried-and-true formula seen in its predecessors and has the look of the 300 and 300T. With a water resistance rating of 200 meters, this watch features a 39mm wide case, 10.7mm thickness, and 41.5mm lug-to-lug distance. It also has an 18mm lug width, a closed case back, and a screw-down crown. Plus, the sapphire crystal comes treated with an AR coating for clarity.

Under the hood, the Sub 200T is powered by a Sellita SW200 movement that gives you 38 hours of power reserve. This movement ensures dependable performance, long-term serviceability, and none of the nonsense you get with an in-house movement. At a price tag of $1,590 on a bracelet, the Sub 200T in this new size should compete fairly well with similar offerings from brands like Oris, Longines, and others.

Now, what sets this new Sub 200T apart is its vibrant array of colors. Alongside the classic Doxa hues, there’s a new addition: the Sea Emerald, a captivating dark green option. And if the eight distinct dial colors weren’t enough, Doxa introduces a choice between the traditional “iconic” matte dial and the new “sunray” dial for select variants. By the way, this “iconic” dial Doxa mentions is supposed to retain the matte finish we’re used to seeing in their older classic models. The “sunray” dial adds a bit of flash. Honestly, I’m not really into those.

This release is significant for Doxa, showcasing the brand’s recent commitment to offering diverse options to cater to the preferences of curious enthusiasts. Overall, I like the fact that this’ll get more Doxas on-wrist everywhere, especially if the new sunray options and colors attract buyers that were doubtful about the visual options before.

Check out all the new color options on the official Doxa website. As for me, I’m really digging this smaller package with the “iconic” Divingstar colorway.
