    sub 300T yellow divingstar

    Bonjour
    j'ai retrouvé une sub 300T jaune divingstar by synchron
    il lui manque la trotteuse et la bague (et le bracelet)
    le mouvement semble complet bien qu'il ne fonctionne pas.
    ou peut-on trouver ces pieces SVP?

    Hi
    I found my father's sub 300T yellow divingstar by Synchron
    There is no bezel, the second hand is not a genuine part and there's no bracelet.
    The caliber seems to be complete but does not work.
    Any one to say me where to find parts. ?

    I already sent a message to doxa (waiting for answer)

    Thanks:thanks

    Wow you have a treasure.

    He has worked miracles on some of those old Doxas.
    Occasionally parts come up on the bay.
    I assume you are French.
    Is that one of the French Navy issued units?

    Hello, you lucky, you've often found treasure, a family heirloom, I wish my father had had one. When possible, we want to see photos.
    a greeting.

    Some pictures of my Sub300 T
    Doxa answered there's no way to repair it :

    "Dear Robert, thank you for your email, unfortunately we do not stock the
    bezel, dial or bracelet, so we cannot really restore your watch, sorry"



    It can work for some seconds when you shake it slowly and stop
    Is the second hand a genuine part?


    best regards

    Hey Doxabob, that looks to be a nice watch. I don't think it would be that difficult for you to find a second-hand that would be like the original. However, a bezel will be QUITE difficult to find. Your best-bet might be to find an vintage case with a ruined movement/dial, and then used the best parts from both watches.

    I hope that you will be able to get that watch going again because that dial is SUPERB!!!
    Best Regards,
    Jason

    Lovely!

    Got the same watch here, Synchron logo'd, and with exact same creamy patina to the hand lume.

    Now, the fact the lume is missing off the markers could well suggest this was military-used, they sometimes scraped it off to reduce glow and also get by hazardous material laws (German BUND mainly i think it was did this?)

    Bezels are hard to find, i had a handful at one time, hopefully someone with a spare will get in touch so you can complete it.

    BTW here's mine -
