Here we have one of the most Legendary Vintage Dive Watches out there, Thanks in no small part to the Dive Icon Jacques Cousteau.
Jacques Cousteau owned and wore a Doxa Sharkhunter Sub300T. Cousteau, who at the time was the head of U.S. Divers, was so impressed by the Doxa Sub300T that he became a distributor of the reference in the United States and co-branded the dial of the Sub300T with the U.S. Divers logo.
