Doxa Size Compared to Seiko Turdle

Post by CGSshorty » Mon Jul 23, 2018 12:00 pm

All this recent Doxa talk has me thinking of getting one eventually. Which model is closest in size to the Turdle? The 1200 looks like it’s a little smaller, but the 1500/5000 might be thicker.
Any photos from people who own both?

No photos, but I am pretty sure you would want the 1500. The L2L on the 1200 case makes it wear pretty small IMO.

1200T will be too small for you. 1500, 750, 5000, 6000 will work well for you.

Thanks. The Seiko doesn’t appear to be that much larger.

In those photos it doesn't seem much larger, but from experience the NAFT wears significantly bigger than the 1200t case.

As Matt said, a 750t is a good pick for a bigger size, and I have also had a 5000T (45mm) that is on the bigger side.

It sure doesn't look like they are much different in size, but I swear they are! :lol:

I tried on Jay’s Poseidon and thought it was about the same size as my 6306, which is perfect for me, compared to the slightly larger NAFT.

5000T on ISO - nicely built, really well finished actually.

Chris the 300 is definitely smaller than the NAFT, also the dial is super small. So go big.

Poseidon is effectively a 1200

750 is a good size. I don’t have a comparison pic to a Seiko but here’s a pic of a 750T Caribbean on my 7.5” wrist

6000T is indeed pretty amazing, and though a hair thicker than a Turtle, I'd say it wears very similarly.

Stole this image from Gear Patrol, but you get the idea.

Thanks everyone. I’m sure I can definitely pull off one of the larger models. The Seiko fits me perfectly, so the closer to that in size, the better.

My 750 wears really similarly to the Turtles I’ve tried; my 1200 wore smaller (and proportionally taller, if that makes any sense).
