New Doxa Poseidon

Just got #384 this morning. A couple of quick pics. Overall, I’m just not sure. Smaller than I imagined it never holding a Doxa before. ImageImage

I love them. Try it on an ISO, vintage if you have.

Doxas wear different from traditional watches due to the case design. My Poseidon should be here soon. It'll be my 4th attempt with one. The previous 3 were flipped because I thought they looked better on everyone but me.

Chris, the Poseidon's are beautiful. The 300 does run small though. The 1500 & 5000 models are the prefect size for me. I've had two 1500's (Professional/orange and Sharkhunter/black). Both of those have been sold over the years. I still have the 5000t Sharkhunter in my collection. That one is a keeper.

Bracelet sized. Liking it more. One complaint, one of the screws spins around inside the link and won’t come out. No big deal because I had to remove the one behind it anyway.

I had the same thing happen. I ultimately just lightly grabbed the part of the pin sticking out with a small pair of needlenose and gave it a light tug, came out without much fuss, and screwed back in fine as well.

Thanks for the tip!

Thanks - liking it a lot more. Like the slight curve of the crystal which you can see looking almost flat on. My wife loves it so that’s a good sign.

I'm thinking this is a 1200 case, I've had a few, but none recently,feels the same.. here it is next to a 42mm Glycine Combat Sub and on my about 7-1/4 wrist.... about the same size, L2L on Glycine is a bit more, Doxa is much thicker, like the 1200..

That looks like it fits perfectly on your 7-1/4 wrist. Great looking diver. Perfect for the summer :thumbsup:.

The 1200 is my sweet spot with Doxa’s - (7 inch wrist)

That looks fantastic! I think they did a great job with that one... and those bracelets are so comfortable

Congrats :cheers:

Mine too. My 1200T Pro is a keeper. Your Poseidon is a really sweet watch.
