    I thought the 600 was the same size case as the 1200 and 300 Anniversary's?

    I’m not sure how the 600 compares to the 300, but I know for the 1200, they’re the same length and width, but the 1200 is noticeably higher. I think technically the case thickness is the same, though the 600 tapers in the middle because it doesn’t have to make room for the HRV. The case back on the 600 is thinner and flatter and the bezel sits lower as well. That and it can only go half as deep 🙂

    The flatter case back of the 600 would make the watch wear better: whereas the bump on the back of the 1200 lifts the watch off the wrist, the 600 would sit lower. Combined with the thinner case, the 600 should be a winner for slipping under a cuff. I believe from the specs I've seen, the 600 case size is the same as the 1200: about 44mm.

    I don't know about the rest of you guys, but 600M is more than enough for my desk. And an occasional swim. Maybe someday Doxa will bring back the 600.

    Agree with everything that was just said. The 600 feels like it hugs my wrist, while the 1200 feels like it sits on top of it. Don't get me wrong, I love the 1200, but I definitely prefer the 600. I like the smaller text on it, it just feels a little more like the vintage watches to me, especially when my eye first hits it. I used to have the 1200 Pro before the Sharkhunter and I also prefer the orange on the 600, even though they're really similar.

    And even when strapping on tanks, you're not gonna see me going below 40! So I'm not sure what to do with the other 560 meters!
