    Different Model Case Sizes

    Morning folks! So, my son has taken off with my Sub 100T COSC and I find myself Doxaless! I love the case size of the 1000T, and know the 600 is of similar size. How does the 1200T compare to the 1000T? Any side by side pics with a 1000T and a 1200T would be cool, but just some good description would be helpful.

    Thanks in advance!

    Plenty of great comparison shots there. The 1000T is a thinner watch in the middle case. Bezel seems to be about the same. Also the 1200T has the He valve which is fairly useless unless you are a saturation diver.

    If you're used to a 1000, the 1200s will feel very 'tall'.

    Re: Different Model Case Sizes

    From the two tables out there (very helpful!), the 600, 1000, and 1200 all have the same 44.6mm case. The table linked on this thread shows the 1000 being 14.6mm thick; the 1200 14.4mm thick. I'm thinking that may be incorrect: the 1200 should be thicker because its case back appears in pictures to protrude deeper than than the 1000. Makes sense: greater depth rating need thicker glass.

    However, the 1000 is a moot point: no longer available. Unless you want used of course.

    If you want used, the 600, as someone pointed out in another thread, is the ideal Doxa. Unless you are diving beyond 600 meters. The 600 used the same 44.6mm case, and is 13mm thick.

    The case back on the 600 is flatter as well as not as deep, which allows the watch to sit on the wrist better. By definition, that equals better stability. Stability = comfort.

    I have a 1200. 14mm thick is very common in divers over 300M depth rating. I have had many that thick, some thicker. Never a problem. That is, if the watch fits. I.e. lug tips have contact with the wrist, watch sits flat on the wrist. If not, the watch will be unstable, translated as "top heavy". No watch is top heavy. It just doesn't fit the wrist it's on. Too big.

    I find the 1200 to be acceptable for my wrist. By specs, the 600 would be better. But they are also no longer available new.

    Hope that helps!

    IIRC the 600T, 1000T, 750T and new sub 50s do not have an HRV. As such they'll appear much flatter on the wrist as compared to those models with an HRV, like the 1200T and others. That is why I have gravitated to models without the HRV.

    I have a 1200 and Ctherecent Divingstar, which to my eyes is identlcal in dimension.

    Despite their deep casebooks, I find they sit well on my 7 inch wrist, especially on the bracelet. I find the Isofrane makes them sit differently.

    The 1000T and 1200T are exactly the same in height as they sit on a flat surface. The 1200T appears thicker because of the way they made the case. The 600T is noticeably thinner and sits a lot flatter on the wrist making it way more comfortable in my opinion. Both the 1000T and 1200T feel the same on my wrist and both feel kind of top heavy.

    I tried to take some side shots of all three watches next to each other but could not get a good picture.
