Bracelet sized, no problems. I did NOT use the included driver, but used a Bergeon 120 driver instead. Maybe 1 out of the 5 screws I touched was noticeably tight, the rest were straightforward.

I should also mention that I soaked the bracelet in hot tapwater in the sink for about 5 minutes beforehand, as I was ready for a fight.

Maybe I was lucky :shrug:

This guy has been trying to sell his 300 reissue for a little while, maybe he'll negotiate further on price.

saw that :) he is asking pretty much what one can get them for new from Doxa :)

My only worry is warranty if buying used. It seems Doxa is painful with post sale service so I imagine I'd be on my own if something went wrong

Right, and it's not selling for that reason which is why I thought you could probably get it for less.

Good point on the warranty. But Doxa's customer service is so good I'm sure they'll take care of you ;) (Mike, I'm only kidding!)

Even if he went to 1800-1850 I think I'd buy new. It'd have to be 400$ + under new for me to buy used I think in case of warranty issues. Doxas lose quite a bit on used market too.
I love the 1200 blue too nice watch and size.

I really doubt this one is going to sell as low as regular Doxas, not being as limited as it is. But who knows. I did contact Andy at Doxa when I was planning to sell mine, and he confirmed in writing that the warranty is transferable, so you shouldn't have any warranty issues. At least no more so than if you were the original owner.

Brice, this is probably the most comfortable and one of the most aesthetic timepieces I have ever owned. Case is thin and curves nicely on my wrist. I seriously thought about purchasing the Searambler. The main reason I held back is because I already have the 600T Graph SR. If Doxa releases a 300T Graph, I'm ditching the 600T.
It's a beautiful world! Gerald.

That's good to know. Their site still says that only the original owner is covered by the warranty, but maybe they've recently changed their policy and the site is out of date.

From the site:

Effective November 1st, 2008 DOXA Warranties will no longer be transferable to future owners of a previously purchased/owned DOXA SUB. The warranty will only be valid for the original purchaser/owner – i.e. the individual named as the owner with the service center.

I saw that, which is why I kept his email, just in case my buyer ever has an issue. They really should update their site to reflect the current policy.

Which is shitty because they told the customer I had with the GMT dial problem there is no warranty since he was the second owner. Sounds like a loop hole they will use. :banghead:
