    1200T serial numbers

    My 1200 Pro has the serial number 0004/1200. I see that there was a 1200 Searambler sold here a while back that also has the serial number 0004/1200, and I'm wondering what that means. Were there 1200 Pros and 1200 Searamblers made? I know serial numbers are randomly generated, but I haven't heard of accidental duplicates. Anyone know the production breakdown of the 1200 series?

    1200 is the full amount of the watch series that Doxa MAY produce for the 1200T. So when Doxa says 1200 pieces will be produced, they mean 1200 of the full line. The serial number on my 1000T Divingstar is 9XX/5000. Doxa was prepared to produce 5000 1000Ts, but there were only 100 1000T Divingstars ever produced. I don't know the full number of the 1000T series that were produced, but it is much less than 5000.

    Same goes for your 1200T. So the serial number of your 1200T Pro looks like it may be a mistake. Duplicate serial numbers in the same series should not happen. But just because the serial number is XXX/1200, does not mean that Doxa produced 1200 of that series.

    Hope all that all makes sense. If not, ask some more specific questions and I will answer. I'm very good with Doxa serial numbers and how they work.

    That makes sense, and fits with what I know about the 750 line. So, we have two 1200s with the same serial number. I guess we do in fact have evidence of a numbering mistake! The Searambler's card is dated September 12, 2009 and my Pro's card is dated January 20, 2010.

    I'd always understood it was 1,200 of each dial type.

    That was my thoughts to, but can't recall the actual number count process. Had to update my original post after looking at my 1000t pro cosc with 3166/5000. they didn't make 3166 pro cosc 1000t to my knowledge . sorry for any confusion I may have added. Ray

    It's actually quite confusing. See my post below:

    Or they may have had intention to make that many of each and as sales died out they cut em short. Hope a Mod or Doxa chimes in

    Yes, that is 100% for sure. But it still does not explain the serial numbers. Do the serial numbers mean 5000 of the Model in Total? Or do the serial numbers relate to each different type of a Model?

    Yes, that is Doxa's Official stance on serial numbers. But the 2005 T-Graph contradicts that serial numbering system.

    Re: 1200T serial numbers

    Conky read your post and under stand your thought. Now, this is my guess and only a guess on the 2005 T graph on your thoughts. I'm thinking they were going to go with 250 of each and tooled up the first batch of 250. Made the 150 of pros and made the 100 of sharkies. More pros because of the Doxa orange. Guessing they decided to kill the next batch of 250 pieces because of sales. Also if may memory serves me right I could have bought a new 2005 T graph from Doxa in 08, as I reall them fors ale on the web site. again a guess. Ray
