Doxa Sub 5000T Seaconqueror Professional Review


Doxa Sub 5000T Seaconqueror Professional Watch Review  

  Doxa is well known for their dive watches, orange dialed divers more specifically. Why orange? Doxa’s research in the 60‘s found that orange is the most visible color in water and at greater depths. 
  Enter what some consider to be the ultimate dive watch, the Doxa Sub 5000T Seaconqueror Professional COSC. What makes this potentially the ultimate dive watch? The 120 click bezel, adjustable decompression table, HRV (helium release valve), ratcheting divers extension, COSC ETA 2892 automatic movement, quick-set date, 1500m of water resistance, SuperLuminova, domed sapphire crystal (3mm), and of course the iconic Doxa orange dial.
  One of the more noticeable changes to the 5000T over the majority of Doxa’s collection is the move from the vintage styled Doxa bracelet. This bracelet has an improved divers extension and is more modern in appearance. Still extremely comfortable and very well executed. Of course the Sub 500T Seaconqueror Professional COSC (long name!) has the Doxa cushion styled case. Even with the modern updates to this this watch it is unmistakable Doxa and every bit a professional dive watch. 

Pros - COSC, improved divers extension, true professional dive watch

Consideration - Heaviest Doxa made at 219 grams
