This week on the Superlative Podcast, our host and aBlogtoWatch Founder Ariel Adams is sitting down in person with more than one guest. In the first part of the episode, Ariel chats with author Dirk Cussler. Dirk is the coauthor with his late father Clive Cussler of nine Dirk Pitt adventures, and he has been an active participant and partner in his father’s NUMA expeditions. The two sit and chat about the book series that his father started involving the infamous character Dirk Pitt and his father’s private nonprofit group, the National Underwater and Marine Agency. They talk about the Doxa SUB 300T Clive Cussler watch, which is a unique timepiece that embodies the adventurous spirit of Clive Cussler’s novels, and the art of aging material such as the aged stainless steel found in the SUB 300T. As the episode switches over to its next guest, Ariel sits down with the CEO of Doxa Watches, Jan Edocs. Ariel and Jan dive into the deep-felt attachment that Doxa has to Clive and Dirk Cussler’s novels, and the real level of fandom that Doxa has as a brand. Ariel asks about the decision to make the SUB 300T a pre-aged timepiece if it is something we might see on other watches from the brand, and how Doxa can up their game further to become a “museum brand.” Listen below or on the player of your choice.
