Doxa dive watches...whats your take?

Now that I moved my Shogun I am looking at a new addition to my humble dive watch collection..

I'd like to try something new, but keep to my 'old' standards of a simple, well proportioned (39-42mm), reliable dive watch. I have been mulling over a Squale matte 1521 for quite some time now, the only 'issue' is that this watch is not available on a nice bracelet (I don't like mesh).

This brings us to Doxa. I like the cushion shaped cases & vintage appeal but for some strange reason I have never ever handled, much less owned one. I mean, is this the same company that used to make the 'old' Doxas or are they just using the name? Where are they made? Also, if I buy online do they ship from EU?

I have heard a few complains re QC. Is this a case for concern? Are these watches well put together and hoe is fit and finish?

Ultimately I must decide between this and a Squale...any one here owns both?

Would like to learn more about the brand. Thanks!

I have the Sub 1000 Sharkhunter COSC and love it. Reminds me of my SCUBA instructor from the early 80's who wore a 300. Great watch, so very different from what's out there today. One of the biggest knocks on this forum is the fact that the company pays for and runs the Doxa forum so they heavily censor any and all disparaging comments regarding their products. That leaves a bad taste in many people's mouths for the company, and consequently their products.
