Over the Summer, Doxa released the limited edition 600T Pacific in a limited edition of 200 pieces, which sold out in just three days. Demand, clearly, was high. So those of us who missed out can rejoice because the Doxa SUB 600T is back to stay with a non-limited collection in stainless steel.
Stylistically, very little has changed from the titanium version of the summer. The design of the case is the same, with a dimensions of 40×47.6mm, although it’s now rendered in steel. The change of material adds more reassuring heft to the piece without compromising on durability or its 600m water resistance. Plus, it has the added benefit of making the watch more accessible.
However, the major change is that it’s now available in the full range of Doxa’s iconic colour palette. In Doxa’s official terminology, each colour has a name like ‘Searambler’ but all you need to know is that the choices are orange, silver, black, navy, yellow and turquoise. It’s a shame that the mid-tone blue of the Pacific has gone, but that just makes the original limited edition even more valuable now.
Ultimately, the Doxa SUB 600T is more versatile and has more options open to you. For example, each of the colourways has the choice of a steel or black ceramic bezel insert. Additionally, a few of the colourways have different colour hands, the navy and the black dial versions have white and orange hands while the rest have plain black.
The 600T Pacific wasn’t a world changing watch to begin with so neither is the new non-limited collection. However, what it is, is a solid diving watch inspired by the 80s with plenty of versatility. And as I mentioned earlier, the new version is more accessible with prices from CHF 1,350 – CHF 1,490 depending on whether you opt for the rubber strap or steel bracelet and the steel or ceramic bezel (approx. £1,090 – £1,205).
