I'm finding my self in a little dilemma. The first time I saw pics of a Doxa I thought "meh" but as you might have guessed they slowly grew on me. Now since I got my Tektite (awesome!) I've worn it on an orange Rhino strap and it's in my opinion the best combination by far (followed by the Sinn rubber strap - who would have thought that? especially as I just don't like the U1 on rubber). I thought mesh would be the way to go but ney and other Nato/Zulu colours are rather boring for the Tektite too. So after really getting into the general orange fever what followed was of course quite the Doxa fever .
Now I do like the Tektite quite a lot and don't want to sell it. On the other hand my U1 hasn't seen any real wrist time since the arrival of the Tektite... and tbh I'm really not that impressed by it anymore. When I put it on my wrist it's OK - no it's quite nice. But when I see how awesome the Tektite looks just lying there on my desk I feel the urge to take that U1 off my wrist.
This is why I'm thinking of flipping the U1 and getting one of the nice Doxas (1200T, 1500T, 5000T, 800Ti). Then on the other hand I'm not sure if I would miss the U1 because it shure is a damn nice watch and what I want to avoid is to sell the Doxa again and getting the U1 back. Also as a student I can't afford getting a Doxa without selling off either the Tektite or the U1 (I'm pretty sure without stating this, it would be the first response from you guys so yeah... sorry to disappoint you ^^).
So I'm pretty sure there are people here owning or having owned both Doxa Subs and Sinn U's. Could you help me out here? Which of them would or have you didched? Which would you consider more essential in your collection and which of the 2 would you not let go? Besides I purchased my U1 maybe 2 years ago at a very reasonable price. Considering the after-market prices of both right now the Doxas and the U1... it's roughly the same.
