Clive Cussler, famed for his adventurous novels and the numerous shipwrecks unearthed by his non-profit agency, NUMA, has cemented his position in literary history with over 85 books and 100 million copies sold. Some of his works, such as “Raise of the Titanic” (1980) and “Sahara” (2005), were even adapted for the big screen. Within the pages of Cussler’s novels, the spotlight was cast on DOXA and their iconic orange dial watch, which played an important role in the daring underwater missions of his fictitious hero, Dirk Pitt. Inspired by this cooperation, the DOXA SUB 300T Clive Cussler—a timepiece that flawlessly integrates craftsmanship, history, and the undying spirit of exploration.
The SUB 300T Clive Cussler exemplifies DOXA’s commitment to the collection’s key qualities while injecting it with a distinct identity. The carved dial, reminiscent of a classic compass, gives the watch an aesthetic touch. Furthermore, an aged steel appearance covers the watch, bracelet, clasp, and pin buckle, giving it a weathered look that complements the wrists of explorers, similar to those in Cussler’s tales. The aged look reflects the journey a maritime relic goes through while buried in the depths, representing not only a timepiece but also the spirit of adventure and the mysteries hidden beneath the waters.
Each SUB 300T Clive Cussler timepiece bears its own discreet and individual engraving, showcasing its exclusivity and authenticity. The faceted, structured 42mm diameter case design captures the essence of Cussler’s identity, with the significant dates of his birthday, July 15th, 1931, displayed in red on the dial. Whether it graces the wrist on land or accompanies daring explorers at sea, this watch serves as a testament to the fearless spirit of exploration and the enduring allure of adventure.
Jan Edöcs, the CEO of DOXA, highlights the natural connection between Cussler’s internationally acclaimed novels and DOXA watches. He emphasizes the essential role their famous orange dial dive watch played in Cussler’s stories, making it an indispensable tool for his heroic characters. Dirk Cussler, the son of Clive Cussler and an author himself, expresses his heartfelt appreciation to DOXA for creating a timepiece that captures his father’s courage, originality, and love of exploration.
The collaboration between Clive Cussler and DOXA goes beyond their shared passion for adventure and maritime exploration. It extends to their commitment to giving back. To honor their storied connection, a percentage of the sales from the special edition Clive Cussler watch will be donated to NUMA, the organization founded by Cussler in 1979. The SUB 300T Clive Cussler watch proudly bears engravings of shipwrecks and historical artifacts discovered or surveyed by NUMA, paying homage to the rich history of exploration. With each timepiece, an extra NATO beige strap is included, allowing enthusiasts to personalize their adventure-ready watch. Additionally, an optional black FKM rubber strap with an aged stainless steel coating folding clasp is available for purchase.This long-term relationship with NUMA exemplifies DOXA’s dedication to supporting the spirit of adventure and maritime exploration, echoing the values cherished by Clive Cussler and his son Dirk. Together, they continue to inspire the fearless pursuit of discovery and the enduring spirit of exploration.
