Welcome to Dialed In, Esquire's column bringing you horological happenings and the most essential news from the watch world.

Don't you love it when a good thing gets even better? First, Doxa introduced the Sub 200T, a 39mm addition to the cult-classic watchmaker's lineup of much-beloved divers. Size-wise, it lands right in the sweet spot. There's no denying that guys are gravitating towards smaller watches, even on the toolier, sportier end of the spectrum. And despite the (very strong) value proposition presented by established models like the 42mm Sub 200 or the 42.5mm Sub 300 and Sub 300T, something more diminutive felt like it was missing from Doxa's lineup.

Well, no longer. And the good news is that the Sub 200T delivers on a whole lot more fronts than just the diameter. The price—$1,550 on a rubber strap and $1,590 on a beads-of-rice bracelet—is tough to beat. The '60s design language is well and truly intact. And the range of colors and dial finishes—a whopping 13 in total, including a new "Sea Emerald Green" color—means that there's combo for pretty much any taste. Add to that a reliable Swiss automatic movement with a power reserve of 38 hours, a screw-down crown, water resistance to 200 meters, and a height of just 10.7mm, and you've got a serious contender for an everyday diver that's extremely wearable. If Doxa decided to leave things at that, we'd have been more than happy.

Thankfully, though, there was still more to come. Because just last week, as part of retailer Watches of Switzerland's centenary celebration, Doxa and WoS announced yet another Sub 200T. This one, an exclusive limited edition, gets an unexpected—and extremely damn cool—seafoam green dial with a sunray finish and gilt indices. Included alongside the beads-of-rice bracelet is a NATO strap in a matching shade of seafoam, so you can get really summery, should the mood strike. It's not a wild departure from the rest of the lineup, but different enough to feel special, and certainly the sort of thing you'll want to snap up sooner rather than later. There are, after all, only 100 pieces available. Don't let this be the one that got away.
