Jason Heaton is at the top of his game. He co-hosts the superb The Grey Nato podcast, he has written many, many excellent watch-related articles and also goes on many adventures overground and underwater.
His latest effort at Hodinkee takes a detailed look at the Doxa SUB 200 T-Graph Searambler and in the article he explains why he simply had to buy it. It is a stunning watch in every way and I totally get why he feels the way he does.
Perhaps fittingly, I learned of this particular watch while on a dive trip in the Caribbean. On a surface interval between dives, an e-mail arrived from a vintage watch dealer in Chicago who knows my penchant for vintage underwater watches. I think I committed to buying it before even stripping off my wetsuit; vintage Doxas in good condition are rare, but a vintage T-Graph is a horological Loch Ness monster. This wasn’t a chance to be missed. Though I was diving with another watch on my wrist, all I could think about was that old Doxa waiting for me back home.
