    Calling All 6000t Owners! Recommendations Needed

    Hey guys,

    I put down money for a 1200t pro due to ship in August.

    I was pretty close to buying the 1500t I used to own as the m31 no longer is offered with bracelet.

    The more I explore the dive forums it seems like a lot of divers prefer the 1500t and 6000t

    I'm thinking about asking Doxa to move my 1200t pro money to a 6000t

    The 1200t is supposed to ship in August, I'm getting a little antsy waiting for it.
    The only real issue here is I had a discount on that 1200t but what do you owners of the 6000t think? Do you prefer it to the 1200?
    - How close is the 6000 to the 1500?
    - Has anyone canceled a Doxa order and moved it to another watch?

    Quick Edit:
    From what I found looks like it's close to the 1500t but
    I've read the lum is much stronger and that Doxa uses a stronger gasket.

    In my signature you can see the Doxas I own. The reason some Divers prefer the 1500, 5000, & 6000ts are because of the ratcheting bracelet. It just makes life easier adjusting to different size wet suits or what not. I maybe the only one but I did have my 5000T adjustable clasp fail on me, on the wrist, and the locked position. Basically one of the buttons you push to release failed and it wouldn't open, had to unscrew a link to get watch off. This occurred after 2 days of hunting the reefs for sea roaches. Crap happens it's mechanical. My 5000T the predecessor of the 6000T has the brightest lume of all my watches due to the hour marker indices that are filled with lume not just painted on dial. So here are some questions or thoughts you need role around. What bracelet style to you prefer? classic beads of rice or updated/modern with ratcheting clasp. What dial do you prefer classic Doxa or modern dial with filled indices with brighter lume. So after rolling that around If you prefer classic beads of rice 1200T is for you, If you like the Modern bracelet 1500 or 6000T, then you decide what dial classic dial =1500T. Modern = 6000T with filled indices. Hope this helps Hray.

    Hi Hands90, I own a 1500T and several 1200Ts. I'm going to speak to the everyday wear of the watches and not the diving aspect. I much prefer the way the 1200T sits on the wrist. With the 1500T its the caseback that contacts the wrist and elevates the cushion case high enough that it doesn't touch my wrist. This leaves it in a slightly unbalanced awkward position. The 1200T cushion case sits nicely and the caseback is a non-issue.

    I own only one Doxa and it is the 6000T. I chose that model because of the dial which is fairly close to being sterile and very easy to read at a quick glance. It is one of my most worn watches

    I originally owned a 1500 and now a 1200 and a 300. I wish I had a 1500 and 1200 at the same time.
    I've been looking into the 1500 searambler but there are so few photos so it's hard to judge.

    I'd like to order a 6000 but Doxa is out of stock until August so I'm going to have to wait.
    My 1200 is also back ordered until August. I really like the 6000 I'm not sure if I want to spend the extra cash.

    Love the dial and insane lume on the 6000, but it's a touch heavy for everyday wear (I have a small 6.5" wrist), and the screw bars don't facilitate quick strap changes. 1200 for me, but I'd own another 6000T in a heartbeat.

    I'm between a 1500t pro or the project aware 1200

    Just received my 6000T. Wow, love it. Now looking for additional 'screw pins' to help facilitate strap changes. Has anyone converted to Spring Bars for NATO straps?
