DOXA was chosen to provide the official timepieces for Fabien Cousteau’s Mission 31 endeavor, to be conducted this fall on Aquarius, the only undersea marine habitat and lab in the world located in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary.  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 used dive watch under water.

DOXA will commemorate 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 under water with Fabien Cousteau’s mission team.  A few lucky individuals will be able to acquire these commemorative watches when they become available for pre-order; sold exclusively by DOXA.

Fabien Cousteau’s Mission 31 endeavor will be conducted on the Aquarius, which is owned by
NOAA and managed by Florida International University.  Saturation training for Mission 31 starts mid-Sept. and Fabien Cousteau's team will submerge on Sept. 30 for the first full day on Aquarius, Oct. 1.

Fabien Cousteau and his team will spend 31 days submerged underwater in the name of science and discovery, breaking his grandfather’s Conshelf Two underwater saturation mission record by one full day to honor the 50th anniversary of Jacques-Yves Cousteau’s original mission.

“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 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 stainless steel.  It is a 44-millimeter, 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 case diameter, white Titanium alloy, Titanium bracelet with automatic ratcheting dive wet extension, ETA 2824-2 Swiss Made movement, water resistant to 1000 meters, AR- coated Sappire crystal, 2 year limited warranty.

About DOXA Watches

In 1967 DOXA created "orange mania" by introducing the world’s first orange-faced dive watch equipped with a patented no decompression dive table bezel.  The DOXA SUB was issued to the Swiss Elite dive troops, German and Korean Navy, and also to the U.S. Navy Sealab Aquanauts in the late sixties and early seventies.  The DOXA Sub was Dr. Clive Cussler’s choice for his best-selling Dirk Pitt® action-adventure novels and has been worn by members of the Cousteau family and Ocean Futures team, among other professional divers and underwater explorers.
