Re: Does DOXA ever have sales?

My customer service experiences with them have actually been really good :shrug:

I have bought 3 models directly from Doxa, and also had one repaired under warranty.

Re: Hodinkee's "One-watch" article

I have a SubC, and a 16710 and I could "One-watch" either of them.

...Just don't ask me to choose which :lol:

The only other watch I have owned that edges into this category would be the Omega PO 2500 :think:

Did you get that gilt dial?
Lorier seem to be doing things right for a small new brand - I am enjoying my blue Neptune.

Re: Lorier Watches - Neptune diver

Really like these, especially the gilt dial. The gilt and blue have been sold out for a while, so was going to order the only remaining version - black dial/white markers, which I also like. Well, of course I waited too long and now all are sold out. Not all is lost however. Found a LNIB (pouch?) g...

Re: Won a hummer on ebay

Cool, I had a Constellation hummer a while back.
One of the main issues they have is the plastic calendar wheel that gets brittle and breaks teeth.

Good article here actually:

Re: Lorier Watches - Neptune diver

Just arrived today. Early impressions are all very positive. Wears really well and does not feel as small as the 39mm spec might suggest. Very classic Sub sized, but with a bit of thickness making it feel a bit more substantial. I am impressed with the details like the polished chamfers, enameled di...

Nice one. Classic GMT.

I changed the bezel on my 16710 once, and got some good advice and tips from here.

Here is the thread if it helps:
