    Bezel in Metric

    I would like to see the bezel back in meters instead of feet , like some of the older Doxa's have
    Not that i really use it but as an commercial diver in the North Sea we all use meters

    Hi WS72,

    I'm located next to you in Germany. We also use meters here. But the preferred market for the Subs were the US.

    Doxa started their reedition series in 2000 with the Sub300T which featured the metric bezel, but looking on the US-market they soon switched over to the feet bezel with their next 600T and stay with this until today. I would have liked to see both types.

    I'm happy that most of my vintages have their meter bezels according to our (European) standards
    Best Regards
    Holger

    Why not offering both? A kind of "custom" Doxa.

    I learned to dive in both metres and feet so either is fine for me. However, from an aesthetic point of view I prefer the bezel in feet. I think it fills the bezel in better, the metric looks a bit sparse.


    Cheers
