DOXA SUB: Official Time Keeper for Ocean Futures Society’s Expedition Team
With a common passion for preservation of our blue planet, Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ocean Futures Society has chosen the DOXA SUB as the Expedition Team’s official time keeper.
“I remember my first DOXA SUB watch with fondness. I depended on that watch during the many expeditions I was on with my father, Jacques-Yves Cousteau,” says Jean-Michel Cousteau, President and Founder of Ocean Futures Society. “I am proud to have my expedition team wear the DOXA SUB again!”
The DOXA SUB was designed with the input of Jean-Michel’s father and co-inventor of SCUBA Captain Jacques-Yves Cousteau and was introduced in 1967. It is the first dive watch to incorporate a non-decompression dive time table integrated into the watch bezel. The DOXA SUB, well known for its orange dial, has become standard equipment of professional divers all over the world since its release in 1967.
“DOXA has a history of endorsing ocean research and preservation and are looking forward to working together with Ocean Futures Society as a continuation of our commitment and dedication to what we consider to be the most important environmental concern of our time,” states Rick Marei, General Manager DOXA watches USA. “We wholeheartedly support the Ocean Futures Society’s mission to educate on a global level about the importance of the ocean, its integral nature to the survival of our planet, and ways that it can be preserved, understood and maintained.”
