I've had my old Sub 200t sitting in a drawer for many years (I bought it back in the early '70s), and finally sent it back to Doxa for a cleaning. Though it wasn't inexpensive, it was worth every penny, as they did a tremendous job -- pic below. Now, I just have to dig around and see if I can't find the packaging and manual!

WOW! That thing is hot! What are the specs on that?

Congrats, and love to hear the praising of Doxa service. My experience was great as well.

Love the dwarf hand on your model. :-!

I am embarrassed to admit that I really don't know as much about it as I should -- I don't even know what the "dwarf hand" is (the hour hand? . I purchased it when I was in high school and was seriously into diving (daily for several months/yr over 3 years) -- right around 1970 or so. I saved like crazy (cleaning sailboat hulls) be able to afford it, and yes, it was that cool orange face that hooked my teenage self on it.

The serial number is 28799-4, then on the line below is "6675087". I'd be most grateful for any insights anyone has about that era of Doxa.

And I must admit that I feel a bit guilty that it isn't in the care of a a serious collector. I of course will now keep it wound, but am not even sure I will-- or should-- wear it much. Instead of a stop-watch, I need a watch that displays multiple timezones, and thus have a rolex explorer II as my everyday watch.

I am new to the list and I don't know Andy. The watch was in the condition you see it; it just needed to be cleaned up as it hadn't been wound once in the 25 years it was in the drawer (I know... I know...).

Welcome aboard !!

Was that the one that Andy (Poorman) organised some movement parts for?

:)

I am happy to step into the fray and offer to wind and wear your watch very carefully very often and give it the care it needs. Just send it to......:-d:-d:-d:-d

No need to be embarrassed, most of us here are a bunch of watch dorks.;-)

You made a great decision back when you bought the watch, so that is something to be proud of.

You have a lot of smart people here, that will likely be able to help you understand the pedigree of your watch. And you have us all drooling over it. It really looks quite exquisite.

Since you just had it factory serviced, I would expect it to work just fine for sometime to come.

Welcome to the Doxa Forum!

A stunning and VERY rare piece you have there. That is very, very close to what I bet the majority of us here might consider the ultimate vintage Doxa (for me the only improvement would be to find one with the larger pointer on the seconds hand-see the pic at the top of the Forum). But these T Graphs are exceptionally rare, and in the Professional (orange) dial, I only recall ever seeing one or two others posted here on the Forum.

With it's sentimental value, I hope you hold onto it tightly for a long time to come. :-!

Gosh -- I would never have noticed the difference in the pointer size if you hadn't mentioned it. I've got a lot to learn1

Looks like you've had it since the 70's but just didn't know it yet. :-!

Would love to see more pics of the Sub 200, side, front, back...bracelet, etc.

Doxa fever? Hardly ever seen around here. Now Doxaholism is another story. ;-)

Here's a few links from our favorite Flying Doctor to get you up to speed on your beauty (wiggling the orange bait):

http://www.doxa300t.com/200t/200tindex.htm

http://www.doxa300t.com/200t/dave200t.htm

And links to the Doxa Bible (setting the hook):

http://www.thedoxabook.com/

http://www.doxawatches.com/doxa_book.html

And don't worry, this hobby isn't addictive at all (reeling in a big one!). :-d

Congrats on bringing your beauty back from the dead (drawer) and may you enjoy it for many more years to come (or send it to me). :-!
