Rolex Watches: DOXA Revives the SUB 300 “Silver Lung”

You know that one must keep upgrading if he wants to be more successful. Revivals and reissues keep on to be all the rage in the popular cheap replica watch world lately, and with DOXA’s latest release—the SUB 300 Silver Lung—the brand is ready to have yet another limited edition model sell out in a flash, having just gone up for pre-order this morning. cheap watches
Modeled after an early Sea Rambler model designed and built in partnership with the famed dive equipment manufacturer Aqua Lung, this 300-piece edition is about as true-to-original as it gets. Aside from its bubble domed sapphire crystal and COSC chronometer certified ETA 2824 self-winding movement, the Silver Lung is a perfectly faithful recreation that simply didn’t require retooling in the same way that many modern reissues usually do.
The relatively thin case profile, broad bezel, and short case lugs make the 42mm diver wear much smaller on the wrist than you’d expect from stock imagery, and the brand’s sleek beads-of-rice band is to this day one of the most comfortable on the market, easily rivaling things like the Rolex Jubilee. In this Silver Lung form, you’re effectively getting the best of both worlds from a design and wearability standpoint. Its sunray silver dial is much more neutral than the bold orange of the limited edition Black Lung that released last year, yet the old-school Aqua Lung U.S. Divers logo in black and yellow adds the right touch of historical throwback that helps the piece stand out when compared to the standard SUB 300 Searambler it is based off of.
With so few pieces being launched, the lucky thing is that DOXA isn’t at risk of saturating the market here the way countless other brands have with their limited edition models, leaving the only question of how quickly these Silver Lung pieces will take to sell out. The original Black Lung reissue from last year vanished within 24-hours, whereas the polarizing bright yellow Poseidon model that launched this year took a bit longer, which was understandable considering a bright yellow watch just doesn’t have the same level of mass-market appeal.
