Some comparisons for Ben. 600t Pro, new 300 SR re-issue, 750t Carib, Vintage 300t Pro, along with a shot of my wife's 200 Sea Nymph for good measure.

Thanks Rob!

From the looks of it I think the 300 reissue is the best fit for me... except for maybe a 1200. Maybe I can grab one cheap someday now that I'm curios.

Ben I have a 1200t, and when my 300 arrives in a couple days I can do some comparo pics (shoulda been yesterday, goddamn fedex :angryfire: )
It will be interesting for me too, as I really can only keep one of them :crybaby:

So I had to seize my bracelet....


First link, I was like "this is fine what are people. Itching about..."


By the third link my screws driver shredded and left chrome flakes. Cheap as hell.

Yeah, I had to switch to a Sinn screwdriver to get all the links out.

Run under hot water for a while. Soften up the loctite. Bergeron screwdriver. Quick and easy.

But everyone else for 20 years has done it flawlessly with the highest quality supplied screwdriver you must be retarded.

I know right. I brought up the screwdriver issue over there and was given the same response. It is not the shitty tool you are to incompetent to use a screwdriver. The moderator is a knob.

Great to know! Just arrived from a 12-hour layover from London.

Now back home to my USA. So happy to be home. I'm gonna tackle the sizing tomorrow.
It's a beautiful world! Gerald.

This is the first bracelet out of hundreds that I couldn't size myself. Didn't even bother with the supplied tool so tried the Sinn tool and broke the tip off. Tried a few other screwdrivers to no avail. Had to go to 3 different local jewelers before I found one that could remove all the screws from the links. Doesn't really change the fact that the watch is just about perfect but still was a pain in the ass.

Agree.

Great watch but I've never had issues sizing before this one.


I broke the supplied garbage one and I broke a Sinn driver.

Had a nice micro set in the drawer I forgot about. Barely works to be honest. Very hard to unscrew. One of the screws looks kinda ugly now.

I never bother with the supplied screwdrivers as I use a set of Bergeons, but I do remember cursing all of mankind when I adjusted my old 5000t bracelet. I had bruises on my hands after that experience.

Should get my Searambler today :rock:

I will overcome this obstacle I am sure :grin:
Worst case scenario I could get some replacement screws. I have heard this is really easy to do with Doxa :stir:

My watchmaker (Grand Central Watch in NYC) literally had to drill out one of the screws. Never had an issue with any other bracelet, including other Doxas, until this one. Hair dryer, hot water, nothing worked for me.

Right, I think Mike is still waiting on his screw bars from 2014. :salute:

He eventually got them from Sven. And I got a set too as part of a little experiment. Still have them if anyone needs a set ;)

Todd, you should really learn how to use your screwdrivers correctly. :stir: :roll: :roll: Either way that sucks to hear. I definitely wouldn't be happy.

Searambler in the house, with 1200t for comparison:
(probably should have taken the plastic off the bracelet :lol: )
