More fifty years after Doxa debuted the first Doxa Army watch, the Swiss watchmaker debuts a new 42.5mm version in steel.
The launch follows the April 2022 release of the watch as a ceramic-cased limited edition in partnership with Watches of Switzerland.
The new, non-limited version is cased in stainless steel with a sand-beige dial. For the first time, Doxa is offering a choice of bezel in bronze or steel with a ceramic insert in hunter green or black, respectively.
Doxa’s use of a bronze unidirectional rotating bezel here as an option marks the watchmaker’s first use of bronze, which many sport watch makers have embraced in recent years.
With its highly luminous dial, the new Doxa Army is being offered with the choice of a stainless steel “beads of rice” bracelet or a black or hunter green rubber strap. Also included is an additional NATO camouflage strap and a case with the original Swiss Army field uniform camouflage pattern.
Inside, Doxa fits an ETA automatic movement (see below for full specifications list.)
Doxa developed the first Army model in cooperation with the Swiss Army in 1968. Dubbed “the ideal watch for military divers,” the watch was notable for its black case, black bezel with black insert and sand-beige dial. Prices: $2,050 to $2,290.
