Response to Yeah, there is nothing like a Doxa...
Initially, I was ready to order the LE NUMA edition. But upon announcement of upcoming 4000T which IMO is a debacle , I waited to see what will come of that. Sad let down IMO.
Then they had a PR meltdown and fallout with that release. Poor market team and direction. Poor customer service, just turned me off.
So for a while I was searching for a vintage doxa, 300T/600T, but gave up. I love the vintage stuff, but I find myself not wanting to deal with restorations and parts.
Yes, unfortunately Seiko sucks in the parts and servicing IMO. JDM's traveling to the motherland and parts so hard to source. Shame.
My Ashtray Tuna is case in point. Cool diver, but no parts available anymore.
Many models have fallen into this same dilemma, and it will be a pain to source in the future.
The Swiss have that right in spades. Parts and service is tops. Not cheap however, but parts still available and in stock. NICE!
I've read your posts with servicing with Al, and how all the parts came together for the PO and the X-33. That was quite nice to see.
Well the 750T upgrade has got a few nice details. Size footprint, dial,hands,height all bigger. Solid endlinks, crown detail similar to bezel grip.
I hear ya on the mov'ts. But one good move Doxa did was drop a ETA 2892 into the 5000T.
Too bad its not across the board.
I figured the 600T might fit me better with my smaller wrist. I've read the 750T and 5000T are the same size footprint, I did get to try on Jeje's 5000T which I felt was big for me.
But reading more comparisons and seeing comparison pics of the 600T/750T, they didn't seem far off.
I'm used to wearing 44mm-46mm as most of my watches (regular rotation faves) are of these sizes.
But a domed sapphire on the 600T I do like. So I'll let you know the verdict hopefully soon.
