    Question Need Advice On Selling My First Doxa.

    I am deciding whether I should sell this Doxa or not.
    I was wondering if anyone could give me an estimate based on pictures.
    It needs a new crown and tube as well as a servicing.
    Its from around the 60's.
    It features a silver dial with a black auqalung logo. Is this rare?
    The servicing would cost around $1000 and I don't have that kind of money at the moment, but I would like to keep it for future repair.

    The buyer is offering $3000 as is. Is it worth selling?
    If so, would that be an accurate deal?

    This is one of the very first Sub-series (noT), produced only in 1967/68 in an original condition and including the original bor-band. Very rare find so far!

    I've seen a few better pieces in the last 10 yrs. but I have never seen a silver Searambler-noT with a US-Divers-logo on the dial.
    That makes your watch outstanding. High extremely rare and a true Doxa-collector-piece!!!

    If you are a real Doxa-Sub-fan you should keep it for a later repair. If you'll do so take care of the original condition, don't touch the dial/hands or throw the band away! Only movement-service, new crown and optical cleaning!

    If not, take the money or try to get a few $ more. Anyway it'll be a good deal for you.

    Here's an old ad from 1968:

    Re: Need Advice On Selling My First Doxa.

    Hi MEEP,

    Welcome to the DOXA forum

    Can you tell if the Aqualung logo is printed onto the dial or a transfer ? My old eyes are not what they used to be but to me the printing looks very sharp compared to any others I have ever seen, mind you I have never seen this colour combination before so what do I know

    At 3k i'd take the money and buy a new one if its a Doxa you're after. Though that is a rare edition, the hassle of looking for parts, a watchmaker that you trust, dollars to spend, time and effort would just be too taxing for me. Plus being a rare edition or vintage piece also means period correct parts are not gonna be lying around. And if its not built to period correct then whats the point. Just buy a new one.

    My 2cents.

    Never seen a Searambler with a solid black background Aqua Lung logo before. Appears at first glance to be almost fresh compared to the rest of the dial. The no-T markings and domed crystal make for a very desirable Doxa. Sympathetic/mechanical resto candidate, but parts (as previously stated) could make for a challenging refresh. I wonder if the domed crystal from the anniversary model will work with that vintage case. Be easier to take the money, run and order a new anniversary SR. Won't have that cool AL logo, tho.

    Re: Need Advice On Selling My First Doxa.

    Get in touch with Flyingdoctor here on the doxa forum He might tell you more about the watch or be interrested to see it. It looks like it's an extremaly rare one, never seen a searambler 300 non-t before with the black us divers aqua-lung logo.

    @orangeface: The sub 300 non-t that have a us divers aqua-lung logo that are around have a "black-lung" logo. Read somewhere these were prototypes the U.S. Divers compagny used for testing. If this watch is one of those it's probably the only searambler black lung and could be worth more then 3000usd

    @miniman: The "black" lung AL logo on the orange-face Professional model seems to be the standard, I'd just never seen a "black" lung AL logo on a Searambler. Very rare indeed.
