Back in Orange...

Post by 425ranger » Thu Feb 23, 2017 11:13 am

I love doxa watches, but when it came time to consolidate, I ended up selling them. I've had four different ones in the last six years. 750, juuuust too big; 5000, great watch, iffy Sub; 4000 clownish size; 1500, 1/2 sub 1/2 5000?... I tried to like the 50th 300T, but a dime sized dial scared me off.

Love the quality feel, the historical accuracy and BOR. (unfortunately this one does not have the upgraded MKII bracelet) The orange is just right inside, a shade off outside IMHO... Nothing to do about that short of an enamel dial (please!)

Blah blah pictures...

Color!!!

Slightly off center HEV, no big deal.

Crystal only gets wonky at extreme angles, love it.

Normal light inside, richer color emerges.

As a reminder, slightly tall for its width and lume is good, not great. My Black Bay kills it...

All the best.

So that's all I get... For trying a watch, like everyone else, for a couple months?

The 1200T is my favorite Doxa. It's a perfect summer watch.

I love the 50th Anniversary 300's...dial is a little bigger than a quarter, with a nice big cushion, and an awesome crystal.
