Crafted with an unwavering commitment to precision and refinement, the SUB 200's 42 mm case, meticulously forged from premium 316L stainless steel, epitomizes durability and sophistication, echoing the legendary robustness that defines DOXA watches. Standing as a testament to both its tradition and modernity, its scratch-resistant domed sapphire crystal provides a nostalgia reminiscent of bygone eras.
