Professional and Collectible Divers Watches
Jacques Cousteau made history as an oceanographic explorer and, among other things, inspired a Bill Murray character. Followers believe Cousteau never wore anything but a Rolex Submariner. In fact, his favored watch was a Doxa SUB diving watch, the Swiss brand founded in 1889, 16 years before Rolex! Now grandson, Fabien Cousteau, is keeping the tradition. Fabien completed Mission 31, an epic 31-day underwater mission that set a new submersion record for oceanic exploration, with a Doxa diving watch on his wrist. Cousteau and his team spent 31 days underwater filming and collecting scientific data, breaking the 1963 world record for longest time under water for a film crew set by Jacques Cousteau.
Doxa has issued the 44mm titanium white diving watch in a 331-piece limited edition created to honor Cousteau’s feat. Each has a COA personally signed by Cousteau, with 25% of proceeds supporting Mission 31. Watch numbers 1 through 31 were actually worn by Cousteau’s team of aquanauts and are selling very rapidly. The remainder of the series is available from Doxa directly at $2,890 per timepiece.
