Nice shot.
And I agree with you about the perfect size of the 750. It fits much better on my wrist than the new 1000.
But I understand that some people might prefer a smaller watch

Top photo, I agree! But, just a small thing, look at the black paint on the 2 o'clock marker compared with the minute hand, it looks almost bubbled? The odd marker on my 600T is the same:think: just an observation.
Cheers,
Mark

Mark,

The hands are powder coated and will give a smoother appearance since the finish is baked on. I'm sure the dials are screen printed in some way giving them a different appearance. The reason being is that the paint has to be pressed through a screen.

Ah! Illumination is a wonderful thing! Thanks for the info, now I understand:roll:

I don't mind the wider case on the 750T, but it should be proportionally thicker and I prefer the smaller dial on the 600T and 1000T.

From what I see the 1000T is going to be great.

I'm not knocking your 750T though. It's still a nice watch.

Perfect for me would be the width of the 750T, but thicker, and a smaller dial like on the 1000T, and true 22mm lugs to go with the 750T width but thicker case.

While that would be pleasing to my eye, it might be hard for many to lug around. Sometimes I wither under the weight and bulk of the Dreadnought and the Steelfish. ;-)

Mark, that is an awesome shot of the 750T! love all of my 750'S too. Wouldn't mind trying a 1000T mind you, but I'm not sure it would win me over above them.

Sounds like what you need is a T Graph (750 diameter, but thicker) or maybe a GMT (750 case, but effectively smaller dial).... but hey, if the Dreadnought becomes too much of a burden for ya, feel free to let me help ;-). Send it my way and I'll carry the weight for awhile. Okay, what the heck, the Steelfish can come too :-d.

I prefer the flat crystal over the bubble crystal. I like to see the whole dial on one plane rather than moving my wrist to see parts of the dial that the bubbled crystal distorts. So I'll favor the 750T.

Hey Doxa Dan -

I tend to agree ith you about the domed vs flat crystal. I know it looks better longer on my wrist than a domed crystal....I tend to put a ding or two on a domed crystal. All that being said - I LOVE the look of a domed crystal. My Seiko 300m tuna is really an impractical watch, but I'm having a tough time parting with it because I love the look of the crystal :think:- which is just sapphlex - so even though I've weighed in on not having the 1000T call to me, I'm seriously thinking about getting one (someday - preferably a used one) because the crystal is sapphire and not that highly domed.

I find the 20 mm lug width surprisingly "right" for the 750, that and it's thin width just help this large watch sit so inconspicuously on my wrist. After evaluating the Seiko Sumo ( and coming to a "no") and flipping a Marinemaster in about 18 months (because it was just too blingy and too thick) I realize I love the dimensions, understated finish, and proportions of the 750T - it's a watch that really works for me.:-!

I too prefer the larger size of the 750T and the flat crystal - it just seems to me that in everyday situations a flat crystal is easier to read from any angle. Sure domed might have an advantage when you are underwater, the the majority of people do not dive with their DOXAs so I don't see the big deal. That said, I do think that different sized watches appeal to different sized wrists. I like the 750T's size on my 7.5-7.75" wrist but it would look silly I think on a much smaller wrist (I've seen Panerais where the lugs literally overlap the sides of say a 6.5" wrist and think its too much in that case).

Awesome shot!

I don't have the 750 so I can't compare my new arrival 1000T;-) with it. One thing I know is the dome give the dial a whole new life which I like it very much.

I love the dome but I have top admit, on my 600 T it is hardly noticable. A flat crystal always has a problem with reflection.

I think like Mark. Sub 750T is the best Pro for me.
The only thing I like more on 1000T is domed crystal.
But the size of 750T is perfect!
Enjoy your Doxa's!

PS: Mark pic is stunning, as always! :-!




I miss mine:-(

Hi Mark, all I have to say is " I loved my 750 Pro , which is yours now!;-)
I am glad you are enjoying it, |>but my friend the 1000T which I ordered from the sale of the 750 is not coming off my wrist. It just is perfect, but then that is the fun of all this - there is something for everyone, right?
Beautiful pic Mark!:p

I dunno what you guys are talking about. I never noticed ANY dial distortion on the slightly domed crystal on my 600T. I have noticed this effect on high domed acrylic crystals like on my father's old Rolex Sea-Dweller or my Zeno Explorer, but not on the 600T and probably not on the 1000T either. The crystals on my Dreadnought and Steelfish are slightly domed as well and no distortion there either. :-s

I used to have a Breitling Seawolf (3000M) and loved it, but nothing compares (yet) to my Sharkie 600T-graph! I only need one more watch...and that's the 300T Seahunter or Pro!
