Always a fan of the beads on rice bracelet.
Yes the 600T did have a few watches where the insert fell out. It was an adhesive problem. Once Doxa changed the adhesive then the problem went away. With an insert, galvanic corrosion is theoretically possible as is crevice corrosion / differential aeration but we are talking very low possibility given the relatively low immersion times and assuming people would be savvy enough to wash their dive watch thoroughly in fresh water after any dip in sea water.
If a brass insert is out of the question then I'd look at the feasibility of plating the circular Doxa logo area. Look at the insert on the Super KonTiki and tell me you don't think the Doxa sailing ship logo wouldn't look great like this. This is the 50th Anniversary watch. You only get one chance to do it. Don't just make a statement...... blow the bloody doors off
This is where the quote came from....

My thinking exactly, Dr.Pete Reading this discussion last night, I was (still am) hoping Doxa will offer this. And if they don't, I may have the insert gold-plated myself. But then, how often do you get to celebrate and commemorate your 50th Anniversary? Last time I checked, only once ......Originally Posted by Flyingdoctor
Honestly, it's more important that it stays as true to the 1:1 as possible. Gold medallion, although neat, would be trumped by the return of the sailboat. Don't change a thing, IMHO.
Is this still available for pre-order? I want to make sure before I paid, because the deposit is non-refundable.
I put in my pre-order and payment anyway - didn't want to wait then find out these sold out while I was waiting. Next.. the long and agonizing 8 months...
What kind of packaging will it come in? "Vintage" box or modern tube? I don't really know if there was a tube in the old days..?
