    1200T or SUB300 50th Anniversary -- which do you prefer?

    Those of us fortunate enough to own a new SUB300 50th Anniversary Doxa are probably still in the honeymoon period -- or haven't even received their watch yet. For those who have, and are also familiar with the 1200T, what do you like about each and do you have a preference?

    It's too soon to tell on my end. I love the lighter weight and retro vibe of the SUB300. But I also like the big, easy-to-read dial and flat crystal of the 1200T. To my eyes, the 1200T is slightly more legible at a glance, or down in the Mariana Trench where I do most of my diving

    I have had a 1200,1500,600,5000 and 750 as well as T-Graph and 4000 sapphire bezel and my vote would be the 50th anniversary 300 as it wears perfect with thinner case allowing it to sit nicely on the wrist. Also the warmth of the domed vintage style crystal is nicer to look at, and all this with a COCS movement.

    I've owned/ own many Doxa's as well, but to me the most perfect piece is the 300. Even for a guy with a 7.5 inch wrist.

    It's always going to be the 1200T hands down

    I have both and I prefer the 300. It is more comfortable on my wrist. I also appreciate that it easily slides under a cuff. Appearance wise it ticks all the boxes for me as well. The 1200 is a great watch but for me the 300 is a bit more "special ".

    I've had a 1500, 5000, 300T, and now the new 300, and also vote for the 300. The only things I liked better from the others was the clasp on the 5000, the original band (with the expand sections) on the 300T, and the U.S. Divers logo. But the 300 scores major points for its domed crystal, COSC movement, and thinness. I also love the new tapered BOR bracelet, even though the endlinks are odd and should have been plain instead of continuing the BOR pattern.

    Winner winner, chicken dinner!

    What is the size difference between the new 300 and the 600T? For me, the 600T is the most comfortable of all of my Doxas' but I don't have a new 300T to compare.

    I like the 1200t looks better for some reason not feeling the dome on the pictures I've seen

    Doesn't sound like you guys are going to make it easy for me to catch a 300 on the flip... I'm liking the idea of the thin case, that was my issue with my 1200.

    I have nothing to contribute other than tally the early votes since the 300(SR) is my only Doxa. I'm surprised that it is this lopsided in favor of the 50th. Legibility is my only complaint compared to other divers I own, but I will keep this one. It's so comfortable and handsome that I can't take it off my wrist.
