    SUB Generations

    It was Simon mentioning that he thought David had one of each SUB that got me thinking, so I took this photo (sorry it is pretty craptastic). It's "My Generations" .... hmmmm sounds like a WHO song



    From the top back

    SUB 300T First generation (Started life as a Searambler)
    SUB 300T Conquistador HRV (First Gen SUB case)
    SUB 300T Synchron thick case
    SUB 600T Auto - Aubry period
    SUB 600T Quartz - Aubry period (see separate link for story on this one)
    SUB 300T Reissue Irishstar - started life as orange Professional
    SUB 300T Seafire (started life as a SUB 250 reissue)
    SUB 600T
    SUB 750T
    SUB 600T-Graph Chrono
    SUB 750T GMT
    SUB 5000T Conquistador - Prototype

    Guess there are a few missing along the way but that shows how the style has changed but really has remained the same over the years.

    Oh yes, for those who haven't seen this. It is an extra chapter for the Doxa book which tells the wonderful story of the SUB 600T Quartz. Maybe if I ever do an update (I actually have about 50 pages of stuff which is missing from the Anniversary book) it will be included. Don't hold your breath guys. I doubt it will happen

    Pete,

    Excellent shot !!! A real evolution of the Doxa sub. It has spurred me on even more to get hold of an Aubery quartz rambler to go with my Spirotechnique, I think its a lovely case design and a real comfy wearer.

    I also love the 300 re-issue, but looking at the picture the 600 is whispering in my ear.........could there be modern on my horizon ?

    Cheers

    Simon
    Too many watches

    Ohhhh and a Doxa Sub Conquistador !!!!!!

    Re: SUB Generations

    Umm, I think I'm the one to blame for this... But, as it's already started...

    Are all different flavors of Doxa SUB represented among our members? Or are there any yet unseen doxas out there?

    Pete, your collection is fantastic! Ehm, could I trouble you for some minor requests... Some approx years of production, and some closeup photos, and the story behind how you got them, and how many was made, and movements, and... Opps, that went from minor to major pretty fast... Better just buy your book, anyway great collection!

    Current watch collection:
    None, actually... Not counting the casio I got from my mom 20 years ago...
    Seems kinda strange frequenting a watch forum without owning a watch, doesn't it?
    1997 I promised myself that the next watch I wear would be a Doxa... Someday I will!

    ...or a Star Trek movie

    seriously, a nice collection - inundated by orange, I notice. Always a crowd pleaser (at least this crowd).
