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!

...and ME. What more could you ask for?

Granted, DOXA is an acquired taste. Sub design went in one direction.. DOXA went in another. You either appreciate the cushion case, the plateau de-comp dive table bezel, or you don't. No right or wrong, strictly a personal choice. Some hate em.. but the WIS that loves em, really loves em!

Don't believe DOXA has any more QC issues than any other small watch builder, and I've had excellent customer service when any service was required.
