    DOXA SUB MODELS IN COSC VERSIONS - THESE WILL INCREASE IN VALUE

    The ETA movements in Doxa Subs are from The Swatch Group and the COSC versions of the ETA 2892-A2 that are in 750T, 1000T and 5000T will not be available in any future production of Doxa Sub models current or proposed, as The Swatch Group will not supply the COSC ETA movements outside their owned watch houses; Doxa not being one of them. So, the two people who bought my 750T Professional COSC and 5000T Caribbean COSC at the price they bought them have real bargains that are true investments.

    I would have to disagree. There is no such thing as a watch as an investment at this price point. Enjoy them for what they are, a great dive watch.

    I have a COSC 5000T and it is awesome. I asked Doxa about getting another new watch with the COSC ETA movement and they told me none available at this time. Is ETA not going to supply outside Swatch group only cosc movements or all ETA movements?

    What he said.

    Good watch, yes. Investment? Nope.

    DOXA SUB MODELS IN COSC VERSIONS - THESE WILL INCREASE IN VALUE

    It's what the market will bear. If people seek them, they will fetch a premium given scarcity. I'm looking for a 750T COSC Sharkie and I'm prepared to pay a premium for it. There is cap I'm willing to pay of course which is relative to the price of other watches on my radar. But for the seller of that watch, should it exist, will have made a good investment on my dollar.

    Would I buy it for investment purposes? No. I haven't found a way to hedge the watch market yet.

    I have heard rumors of this for a couple years. Was something finally officially announced by Swatch?

    I've always wondered, once the movement is serviced and maybe has a part or 2 replaced due to wear and tear, it is no longer cosc certified?

    Good point David. I think one would have to get the movement recertified, is that possible?

    Doxa said to me yesterday that the ETA COSCs will not be supplied to those outside The Swatch Group so no more COSC versions of Doxa Subs. So, far they are able to supply the regular ETA movements but Doxa do not know how long.
