    DOXA Aqua Lung Reissue - To T, or not to T: that is the question

    If Doxa were to reissue a Sharkhunter or Searambler ‘Aqua Lung’ would it more likely be in the SUB 300T case like the recent Poseidon or the SUB 300 case like the 50th Anniversary models and ‘Black Lung’?

    So the trade off is 2 mm in case height or 2 mm extra dial. Not as simple as it sounds.

    ... and which would be the most historically correct?

    Leaving aside historical accuracy I do find the 50th anniversary case and BOR bracelet combination to be the most comfortable watch I've ever worn.
    I was gutted that the Poseidon didn't use that case as I'd really like a Divingstar!

    I think DOXA would be more likely to use the SUB 300 50th case.

    Wouldn't a SUB 300 50th case with a Divingstar dial be fantastic?! Please, DOXA...

    As far as I can tell there was never originally a SUB 300 Searambler but there was a Sharkhunter with a white Aqua Lung logo. My guess is that the next reissue in a 50th Anniversary case will be the Sharkhunter ‘White Lung’ then that will be the end of the series.

    I'd also say a 50th anniversary Sharkhunter Black Lung. Just because it would be the obvious choice given the Professional Black Lung 50th anniversary.

    ... I meant to say above that there was never a SUB 300 Searambler with an Aqua Lung logo (as far as I can tell).

    Also, photo borrowed from Watchspeak - Thanks

    I would love it if Doxa did do a Sharkhunter "White Lung". My vintage US Divers Sharkhunter 300T is retired, but a "White Lung" would be great companion in the water. I am also curious about the new banner as it mentions Spirotechnique. Would a Spirotechnique dial be something that could be up and coming?
