    I still need to buy one of those - $300 and I think they work on the 1000T....

    The 1200T and 300 anniversary models both currently ship with a real individual BOR bracelet, but the beads are each a small solid bead, not a hollow bead like on vintage watches. My understanding is all the 1200T's with the real BOR bracelets are considered to be 200T MkII models.

    The new bracelets should fit any doxa sub with 20mm lugs.

    I'm wearing a 1200T with the new bracelet right now, most comfortable modern watch bracelet I've ever worn! :) My only complaint is I wish the clasp cover was machined, similar to Omega SMP bracelets, instead of being samped steel. My Seiko OM has a nicer clasp with latch buttons than doxa uses.

    The doxa clasp is functional, but loooks like it should be on a $200 watch, not a $2000 watch.

    If doxa is listening - this new BOR bracelet is almost perfect - just release a nicer clasp mechanism for us to retrofit onto these great new BOR bracelets!! Please!!

    It should be machined, contain NO STAMPED SHEET METAL PARTS, and incorporate locking buttons, not a cheap stamped fold-over hasp.
