    U1 v. Stowa Provider v. Doxa

    For those of you that currently or have owned these watches:

    I own the U1 but am looking for my next purchase. How do the other two stack up to the U1?

    There is a poll on ProDiver vs. Doxa 750 on the Dive Watch forum. Predictably, it's become tendentious with the Doxa rep weighing in with his usual irritating rhetoric. But you might want to read the opinions expressed. I have a U1 and a Doxa 750 and a Stowa Seatime (not the 1000m Prodiver). I would rate the U1 tops because of its innovative technology (Tegiment hardening, lossless bezel, special oils). My Stowa is beautifully machined and nicely retro -- it doesn't compete with the Sinn; rather it complements it. The Doxa is a good watch, keeps good time, but its styling is a matter of personal taste. Fortunately you don't have to have a lurid orange dial if you don't want one; the black Sharkhunter dial is very nice. But somehow for me it's a half step down from the other two. And the price is debatable; some find it too high. In comparison with current U1 prices, I tend to agree. I find the depth rating differential essentially meaningless. --redstart
