This 1970's Ernest Borel Sub 200T SharkHunter is a very rare and uncommon mid-size vintage Dive watch. Ernest Borel Sub 200T Sharkhunter diver with stunning eccentric Near Mint matte Tritium lume dial & original matching handset. This cool circa early 1970s dive watch is in Excellent original vintage condition overall. The story on this Sharkhunter, which is like a 37mm cross between a Submariner and Doxa's bigger, more famous model, is that at this time Aubrey* owned Doxa & Borel and had no compunction about using a virtually identical dial and model nomenclature across two ostensibly separate brands.
The dial has taken on the name of the "Shark Tooth Dial" as a result of the home plate style markers located at the 6, 9, and 12 o'clock positions on the dial. The broad and high contrast white hands are instantly recognizable as DOXA and possess a unique and cool factor that makes this piece stands out. This specific piece is eye catching, unique, and would make a great conversation piece while on the wrist!
