    First Doxa Question/Recommendation

    I have a lot of Seiko divers, and like the clean lines of my 6309 and 6105 models.

    I also like orange divers, hence my interest in DOXA. Long story short, I'm a newbie to this brand.

    There are so many DOXA models I don't know where to start. Is there a classic for under $2,000 (new or used) that everyone has in their watch box?

    Not in that price range, brother. Not even in the used market!

    I would go with a limited edition black dial Doxa military limited version 750t

    You can view their offerings on the website.
    For me the classic is the 1200T as it more resembles the original vintage size and under $2000.
    Still my favorite watch:

    The SUB 1200T Professional is Doxa's "vintage series" model. It's as close as you can get to the original SUB's of the '60's... a real classic. And with the new beads of rice bracelet, it's perfect. I'd start with that.

    Re: First Doxa Question/Recommendation

    Brian883's advice is on target. A true vintage SUB 300 is handsome but they're all old. If it hasn't been serviced recently, it will need it sooner or later. Parts are scarce.

    The "new" vintage 1200T is a nice size and durable. If you've got a bigger wrist, consider the SUB 1500T.

    For your second Doxa, that's easy - get a vintage Doxa SUB 300t! I've seen them on ebay for under $2000.

    Good luck and show us what you got!

    Re: First Doxa Question/Recommendation

    I agree with William and Brian. When I decided to get my first Doxa I knew it had to be orange and it had to have the "classic" Doxa look. For me, the 1200T was the right size and look. The 1200T Professional filled the bill. A year later a 1200T Sharkhunter joined the collection. Ummmm do you think a 1200T Searambler is far away?

    SUB 1200T with orange dial if you prefer a traditional size watch;

    SUB 1500T with orange dial if you prefer the modern, up-sized version.

    I found my first original Doxa 300T for under $1000, it depends on what your taste is I guess but agree with Brian
