Anyway, I will check the exact case dimensions for you.
    Any chance of getting those dimensions? Specifically interested in case height (including the boxed-dome crystal) and OAL. The 42mm diameter should be slightly more wrist-friendly than the current 1200T, especially if the case is thinner (≤14mm would be perfect!). I would love to get this information during April, when the Doxa customers' pre-order is open. Thanks!

    First Look: The Doxa Sub 50th Anniversary Limited Edition › WatchTime - USA's No.1 Watch Magazine


    The case is the EXACT dimension as the original 1967 SUB300, the modern additions are the special cut sapphire crystal identical to the first generation plexi and the Chronometer certified movement . And this is just a prototype minor changes to the crystal might occur, HOWEVER, the case, and dial are finalized.

    The bracelet does have a slight taper like the original.

    Yes, it will use a COSC ETA 2824 movement.

    This will be a limited edition of 300 pieces per dial color. Available only for DOXA returning customers

    The release will incorporate three models, the Professional, Sharkhunter, and Searambler.

    Watches will start shipping in November.

    Pre-Order price is $1990.00 with a $500.00 deposit. Regular price will be $2490.00, if we don't sell out during the pre-order!

    Thank you,
    Customer Care
    DOXA Watches
    Please could you advise the WUS pricing for Professional or Searambler $1999 or $2450?

    Agreed and x2 on the crystal. Looks fantastic in current form. BP nailed the domed sapphire aesthetic on the FF and I'm looking forward to another watch with modern build but throwback design.

    Order placed this morning for a Pro.

    Does anyone know the dial diameter? It looks small, but maybe it's just the domed crystal. The same 27mm as the 1200t?

    Would also like to know. I'd like to get confirmation before ordering.

    Several reasons I think it will be smaller: 1) The 1200 case is 43mm and this case will be 42mm; 2) the bezel on the 1200 extends almost to the edges of the case, whilst this one is significantly smaller than its 42mm case; 3) the diving and no-deco scales look pretty wide compared to the 1200 bezel; and 4) the box-bubble domed crystal makes a smaller dial necessary if everything else is equal ... and everything else is smaller on this watch.

    Best guess for me: 23-25mm for the dial.

    P.S. - My diving instructor in the '60s had just gotten a new Doxa 300 a few days before my training began, and my father liked it so much he got one about a year later. When I lost my Omega SM300 overboard in '78, I used his old Doxa for a few months until I bought a Heuer as a permanent replacement. The small dial had absolutely no impact on the functionality of the watch underwater. I've had dive watches with small dials and dive watches with huge dials. That doesn't mean anything beneath the waves. But, for desk divers, the aesthetics might be an issue. If you're into period authenticity and the retro look, you'll be fine. If not ... well, this might not be the best choice for you.

    P.P.S. - I got a straight-on hi-rez photo of the new 300, and it appears that the crystal outer diameter will be somewhere around 28-29mm (minor parallax could make that 30mm in reality). Given the box shape of the crystal, it has fairly thick sidewalls. The dial should be somewhere around the interior diameter of the crystal, which could be as large as 26-27mm ... so it is possible that the new 300 will have a dial the same size as the 1200T. Just be aware that, even if it does, it will appear smaller than the dial on the 1200T because of the different crystal.

    Re: Sneak Peak: 50th Anniversary SUB300 Protoype!

    I’ve been a member of WUS since 2013 and immediately became a fan of DOXA watches. I “silently” follow the forum’s topics and discussions like every single day, however, I haven’t made any “posts” yet until now, so I guess that makes me a “newbie on posting”. Through the years, I’ve been able to acquire several DOXA’s and when the opportunity to acquire one of the 50th Anniversary SUB 300 reissues was made available, I couldn’t pass up so I called Andy right away. DOXA simply did an outstanding job on this model. I wear my DOXA’s very proudly and they are a conversation topic where ever I go. Looking forward for my Pro to arrive in November and be one of the “300”.

    Cheers,

    Elliot
