    Doxa rubber dive strap - need help deciding.

    Does anyone have pics of their Doxa Pro (orange face dials only) on either the Doxa black or orange rubber dive straps? I have a 1200T Pro and am having a hard time deciding which color that I should buy.
    Leaning toward the orange since the face is also orange but is this too 'loud' of a combo.
    If anyone has pics or wrist shot pics of either, would you mind posting them? This would really help - thanks!

    I agree that orange on orange is a bit 'loud' which is why I went with the black on my 1000T Pro; I really like the contrast of the Doxa orange and the black rubber. The orange strap looks better IMO on the Sharkhunter/ Searambler/Carib. Here are some pics of my Pro on black rubber:





    In this thread you can see orange on orange Pro:

    Good luck deciding!

    Thanks for the replies guys!
    And thanks also for that thread link (was not aware of that thread). This may make it even more difficult to decide I like the pics of BOTH!!!

    Hey, that may be the ticket - both...

    Three pics, three problems:

    1) The strap is stiff, so the complete ensemble is like a hard bangle.
    2) The pinholes are'nt made very well, it's hard to run in.
    3) At the buckle the construction is about 10 mm thick, so the circumference of the ensemble grows.

    Conclusio: The 1000T becomes a female watch!

    Ciao!

    What size is your wrist Giovanni? It looks good on it as I don't see any of the extra radius jutting from your wrist.

    My wrist: 17,5 cm = 7 inches.
    Strap inside adjusted to 19 cm = 7.5 inches.

    Does anyone know if the regular Doxa non fitted strap will fit the 1200?

    I was asked what the time was that was on my watch ?
    Does anybody really know what time it is ?
    Does anybody really care ?
    If so I can't imagine why..........
    I do, I do, I do care about time.
