    Divingstar font

    I searched and didn't find anything, but any information on why the Divingstar font is unique among the DOXA models. I notice this dates back to the vintage and has been carried forward. Definitely italic and almost looks handwritten vs. professional/sharkhunter/searambler/caribbean.

    I like the look and was curious if any history behind the choice was available.

    Sorry if this is a duplicate, but the datewheel on the 1000T appears to have a serif (although different from the DS), doesn't it?

    I agree, great pic. I do like the:

    --Yellow numbers on the bezel. They are a nice change from the orange (not that I don't like the orange)

    --Black and yellow combo. Looks great.

    --Divingstar font does look different and very nice

    --Lume on the GMT is tremendous!!

    That is one fine watch!!!!!!!!!!!
    Best Regards,
    Jason
