I think people who aren't really into the whole retro look of this watch might not care much for a dial that small (and, if they buy one anyway, gives hope to those who plan to wait for the resales to start ). But it's not that much smaller than the 1200T, and is historically accurate in its dimensions.

    If I had one niggling concern, it would be the absence of "chronometer" on the dial, given the COSC cal. 2824 (just one of my peculiarities). But it's not a deal-breaker by any means.

    Well, this means my 1200T MkII will be moving out to make way for this one. And, if they ship close to when they expect to, it will arrive almost exactly 49 years after I saw my first Doxa 300 close-up.
    In terms of the COSC, please remember it is 100% remake of the original 1967 model, it has the original clean dial, the original vintage font, DOXA wanted to keep the whole watch 100% original and stick to the roots, so it was clear that there is no room for deviating from original, and for the COSC lovers, it will be on the caseback. and a fellow member said, leaving out the COSC hint on the dial it is pure understatement !

    I love this thing. I wish I didn't jump on the OVM LE, as I can't justify both watches. The life of a WIS ;(.

    I already knew all of that. That's why I added that the desire was "just one of my peculiarities." Carry on.

    P.S. — I can live without "chronometer" anywhere on the case as long as the watch keeps time within COSC specs (which was not the case with my old 5000T chronometer, which never kept time within COSC specs). And, yes, I know the watch can be returned for regulation, but I have never bought a chronometer from any watch company (and I have bought lots of them) that did not keep time within COSC specs - except the Doxa. There are micro brands costing far less that regulate their watches in five positions after casing. Personally, I would feel a lot better if that was done with these watches, too. A COSC 2824 that was certified several years ago might not still keep time within chronometer specs after casing.

    The answer is probably somewhere in the 19 pages of posts but I don't remember what it is.

    What is the Water Resistance of this model?

    Thanks, I did not want to assume that in case the SUB300 was just for the historical aspect.

    With the modern crystal, seals and CNC capabilities 300m should be easily achievable.
