    bands on vintage

    Hi folks,

    I know that here are some vintage owners around. If you have the original bands with your watches you can be happy (like me). I made some experiments by fitting some other bands to check the different look. Here are the results:

    1) Sub 300 on a soft grey-brown leather strap. Very comfortable to wear
    2) Sub 300T on a „Bond-Style“-Nato-Strap (Nylon, black/grey). Very army looking.
    3+4) Sub 300T on an Oyster-Style bracelet with curved end-links. Offering more stability than the original one.
    5) Sub 300T on an original Doxa-leatherstrap (not longer available)

    Regards
    Holger

    Thanks for the pictures Holger!! I am a bracelet guy through and through, but that orange leather Doxa bracelet really makes that dial "Pop"
    Best Regards,

    I agree with Jason on the orange Doxa band but the Oyster(3+4) is also great and for a great part resembling the classis Doxa view. What kind of strap is the metal Oyster?
    ThanKs,
    Adrian.

    Hi,
    the ‚Oyster’-Style-Band comes from a ‚Submariner’-like watch that broke a few years ago. I only had to make the endlinks fit.
    The unworn Original Doxa leather strap was an add to my 600T which I purchased 3 weeks ago. As far as I know is this band no longer available from Doxa.
    Check also Pete’s unofficial Doxa page:

    I've had my vintages on leather (Delaurian) and Watchadoo - but finally I have filed those end pieces and fitted the modern bracelet to the 300 T Sharkhunter (Apologies to Jason for my tardiness!!)
    Here 'tis.
