DOXA Watch Company to set a new submersion record as the official timekeeper for Fabien Cousteau’s historic underwater Mission 31

The 31-day underwater mission will set a new submersion record for human oceanic exploration. DOXA will also set a record for the longest continuously submerged dive watch. Cousteau’s mission began on June 1, 2014 and concludes on July 2nd.

DOXA commemorated the mission by manufacturing a special edition of 331 pieces of the famous orange face DOXA SUB dive watch, 31 of which will spend 31 days underwater with Fabien Cousteau’s mission team. The rest will be available to collectors directly from DOXA.

“Mission 31 will broadcast every second on multiple channels exposing the world to the adventure, risk, and mystique of what lies beneath,” says Fabien Cousteau. “DOXA will be instrumental in the support of our scientific endeavors while also helping us keep track of time down below.”

The limited edition DOXA Mission 31 SUB is a modern titanium cased version of the popular DOXA watch that Jean Michel Cousteau and his father wore. It features a new high-tech, light-weight case and bracelet with the strength of steel. It is a handmade automatic Swiss watch developed specifically for divers and features a limited edition commemorative dial celebrating Mission 31. Approx. 25% of the proceeds of the 331 piece series will be donated to the mission.

Technical specifications: 44mm white Titanium alloy case, Titanium bracelet with automatic ratcheting dive extension, ETA 2824-2 Swiss Made movement, water resistant to 1000 meters, AR- coated Sapphire crystal.
