First Doxa -- 1200T Pro with pics

Post by JohnFM » Thu Feb 13, 2014 12:21 pm

Here it is folks -- I blame YOU for my new found Doxaholism ;-)

Couldn't be happier with the watch, by the way -- as well as the service. The quality, heft, and fit/finish are outstanding. Sven has been great -- patiently answering all my questions and responding to various concerns.

For those considering a 1200T or other Doxa, my wrist is 6.75". As much as I'd love to own a 1500T someday, I think the classic, 42mm size is just about right.

Thanks to all of you. I've appreciated your insights, experience, and good humor.

John

That looks great.

I have the same wrist size, and I think both the 42.70mm and 44.70mm feel at home on said size wrist.

I had the 1200T Pro and Searambler and still own the 600T Searambler(44.70mm).

Great watches for sure.

Congrats!
It's a beautiful world! Gerald.

The 1200t is a great choice and looks great on your wrist. Congrats!

Looks great. :cheers:

Axelay2003,

Good to know the 44.7 mm size will work too. If you have any pics of a bigger Doxa (e.g., 750 or 1500) on a 6.75" wrist, I'd love to see 'em ;)

Don't sweat it, bro. If I am not mistaken, I believe the 750T and 1500T share the same case size as the 600T.

If so, here are my pics:

1200T Pro and Searambler(long gone):

600T Searambler(my only Doxa):

No. 600 is "similar" to 1000, 1200, and vintage...around the 42mm mark...but individual cases.

600Tgrapgh is a beast unto it's own...much larger and taller, more like the GMT in stature.

Correct Sir, the 600T is the most comfortable of the family...IMHO

Here's a chart for those interested:
