I like it, especially the domed crystal. I wonder if it will be available in other colors?

I don't think the original had a domed crystal, did it? Either way, I love it.

I am not sure about the original, but this version seems to have a domed crystal.

I love Doxa watches but I'm not keen on the look of that one at the moment :shrug: I don't think the domed crystal is doing it any favours.

I think it looks decent, but the dial could be bigger.

I love it. Super vintage feel to it, which is appropriate given the already vintage vibe of the Doxa Sub.

It is based on the original 300 (no t) case and crystal. I think I am in love.

I think the effect of the domed crystal is making it seem even smaller than the already normally small Doxa dial.

The stock 600t had a really small dial also.

Yeah. I just hope folks are prepared for the size, given that everyone is used to modern sized dials in newer watches.

I was even smaller than the Seiko MM, it looked cartoonish.

This is the one I had briefly.

I absolutely love it. They nailed the vintage look. I wouldn't pay the retail price, but that's about as faithful a 300 re-edition as we will ever get.

Looks fantastic, but it will be too small for me. I love the dome :love:

Wow, that's awesome! Looks like an extremely faithful re-edition of the second series no-T watches (the first Doxas had Aqua-Lung logos, then went to a plain dial like this before ditching the thin case and plexi domed bezel).

The dial is definitely on the small side and these don't wear like a modern watch, or even a modern Doxa. I'm sure a lot will be quickly flipped (good fore me).
