    Divingstar COSC vs Project Aware?

    Any thoughts between these two for a first DOXA?

    I really dig the logo on the COSC (no longer available in orange). Maybe it's a bit lame, but I think the logo adds interest to the watch. I am also strangely drawn to the yellow color. And I, of course, like the idea of a COSC rated movement.

    I also am interested in an orange version, at least as much for the traditional color as anything. Not sure what I think of the project aware logo or the peculiarity of a watch with such a specific marking. Once again, no more pro versions available at the summer price.

    Thoughts? If it wasn't so much more expensive, I'd probably spring for a 750t pro. Perhaps I should just save up??

    Thanks!

    I say go with the DS. The best Doxa color IMO (though the orange is great as well), and I really love the COSC logo.
    Some watches...

    I too would go with the DS COSC when given those choices. I love the Seahunter Logo. It looks FANTASTIC on the yellow IMHO. Here it is on my former DS 600T.

    Doxa does a good job with their colors. Both orange and yellow are colorful but not obnoxiously so. Orange is the iconic color for doxa and you should at some point grab one but I've always like the change of pace with the D-star. I dig the logos too and COSC is cool cause you have the top ~3% of movements that have been submitted for the testing standard. You get the paperwork with matching serial number to the movement. All pretty cool. I'd go COSC myself in a heartbeat.

    Not big on Logos myself, generally speaking.

    This does turn me on though.

    As good as my new Sub 800Ti is running(+ 2 seconds per day over last 4 days)I would say go with the standard Sub 1000T Divingstar(my next Doxa) & save the balance of funds for the next Doxa you want.

    Ohhhhhhh..........You know how I love the GMTs, and this is probably the best, or the 2nd best IMHO. It is a close call between the the GMT Pro or the DS GMT..............

    One thing is certain............The DS GMT is ultra-RARE, and FANTASTIC

    I just have a soft spot for the Divingstar. I also like the Seahunter Logo better than the Aware Logo. JMHO
