Celebrating a Legend: The DOXA SUB 300T Clive Cussler
DOXA introduces a special edition watch to pay homage to Clive Cussler, a legendary American author, maritime explorer, and founder of NUMA. This SUB 300T celebrates DOXA and Clive Cussler’s shared passion for diving, adventure, and ocean conservation.
Clive Cussler’s adventurous spirit and his contributions to literature and marine exploration inspired the development of the DOXA SUB 300T Clive Cussler timepiece. The watch celebrates the shared passion for adventure and maritime exploration that DOXA and Clive Cussler have nurtured over the years.
Cussler was an accomplished writer with over 50 books and 100 million copies sold to his name, written either alone or in collaboration with others. His works were widely read in many languages across the globe. Among his famous literary series were Dirk Pitt, NUMA Files, Oregon Files, Isaac Bell, and Fargo. Both Clive Cussler in real life and Dirk Pitt, in his novels, wore an orange-faced Doxa Sub 300T dive watch. Sadly, Clive Cussler passed away in 2020, but his literary contributions remain a significant part of his legacy.
The NUMA Foundation
Clive Cussler founded the National Underwater and Marine Agency (NUMA), a non-profit organization committed to unlocking the secrets of naval and maritime history by searching for lost ships of great significance. Under Cussler’s leadership, a group of fearless marine experts and NUMA volunteers have undertaken daring expeditions to uncover some of the world’s most historically important wreck sites. Over the years, they have explored more than 60 sunken vessels, each holding a unique story waiting to be unearthed. Recently, they discovered the Carpathia, the ship that rescued hundreds of lives from the Titanic disaster. Once artifacts are recovered, NUMA hands them over to state and federal authorities or donates them to museums and universities.
The DOXA SUB 300T Clive Cussler
The SUB 300T Clive Cussler watch is a beautifully crafted timepiece that reflects Cussler’s adventurous spirit and his love for exploration and discovery. The watch keeps the signature features of the DOXA SUB 300T series, such as the faceted, structured 42mm diameter case and a bezel that is discreetly and individually engraved with its own exclusive number. However, the watch also incorporates unique design elements, including a handmade dial that evokes a vintage compass and an aged steel appearance applied to the watch, bracelet, clasp, and pin buckle. This gives the timepiece a distinctively weathered and nautical look, perfect for adventurers who share Cussler’s love of exploration and discovery.
The SUB 300T Clive Cussler watch also includes commemorative dates in red on the dial, representing Cussler’s birthday, July 15th, 1931. This watch is not just a timepiece; it is a symbol of adventure and discovery, a reminder of the mysteries that lie beneath the waves and the treasures waiting to be uncovered. Each timepiece is discreetly and individually engraved with its own exclusive number on the side of the bezel, indicating its uniqueness and authenticity.
The watch comes with an extra NATO beige strap, and an additional black FKM rubber strap with an aged stainless steel coating folding clasp is available for purchase. This watch is a statement of the fearless spirit of exploration and the enduring nature of adventure, celebrating the shared passion for adventure and maritime exploration between Clive Cussler, his son Dirk, and DOXA.
DOXA and NUMA
The watch is also designed with the brand’s partnership with NUMA in mind. The names of shipwrecks and other historical artifacts discovered or surveyed by NUMA up to 2022 are engraved on the back of the watch’s case. Additionally, a percentage of sales from this special edition Clive Cussler watch will be donated to NUMA. DOXA’s longtime partnership with NUMA is a testament to the brand’s commitment to supporting the maritime community.
Launch Event in New York
To celebrate the launch of this special edition watch, DOXA is holding a special event at a private club in Manhattan. The event will be an opportunity to showcase the new watch and celebrate the enduring partnership between DOXA and Clive Cussler.
