    Doxa SUB 750t Professional vs. Breitling Seawolf Avenger

    Hello everyone,

    I'm trying to figure out which one of my two dive watches is the technically the "better" watch . Please share your opinions and comparisons if you're familiar with the movements of the Breitling Avenger Seawolf compared to the Doxa Sub 750t.

    Why not one on each wrist? :-D

    Two great watches. As far as "technically better", I'd have to give the nod to the Avenger. It has a Helium vent I think, correct? (Yes, it does... I checked). It is rated to I think 3000 meters, as commpared to the Doxa's "measely" 750 meters (:-D ). They both start with the ETA 2824 movement. Breitling decorates these and assembles them, and all are COSC certificatied. The titanium is also more corrosion resistant than the SS the Doxa uses.

    Now with all of this, it'd be hard to consider the Doxa the "technical" winner. But on history, aesthetics and pure "joy" (an intangible, I know) for me anyway, the Doxa beats the Sea Wolf hands down!

    Keep in mind, my favorite brand is still Breitling. And my favorite watch is the Sea Wolfs father, the Chrono Avenger. But between these two, as to which I would prefer wearing? I wear my Doxa now more than any other watch. And it's specifications are more than up to the task of any dive anyone I know has ever undertaken!

    Great reply T.

    I love both these watches. When I need to wear something light and comfortable I go with the Breitling on the rubber strap. I tend to wear the Doxa on weekends and for Dolphins games. Unfortunately it is difficult to get away with wearing a yellow or orange dail in a business environment.

    Also, thanks for the info on the movements. I was unaware that they both use the same ETA.

    Au contraire, I think it's fairly easy. I've been cycling almost all of my watches during the work week and have found that the Doxa fits in with a business or business casual dress code just fine. It's big and bright, yes, but there's nothing wrong with that in my view because it's also well built, classy, and clearly didn't come from the local convenience store.

    Most people will not even notice what watch you are wearing in an situation. Being a WIS, I notice it 1st. What I have seen is business men in expensive suits wearing timex ironmans and shoes that do not match anything on their body.

    It comes down to, that you notice it yourself, and may feel that is won't fit in. While in reality no one in the office would notice a 10 foot monster storming through the hallways... Unless he had a raise or pink slip in its hand...

    Doxa has the heritage and history the Breitling is something for sience fiction divers. Who will ever go 3000m? No human unless in a protected atmosphere. You get what you pay for, the Breitling is more expensive but is manufactered to higher standards. However if your wrist is below 8" and you ever intend to wear a shirt you will need to get the Doxa which wears wonderfully comfortable.

    Re: Doxa SUB 750t Professional vs. Breitling Seawolf Avenger

    Two very different watches IMO
    both companies have a lot of history behind them so I do not think it is a valid argument BUT :

    Breitling is not a "diving wqtch specialist" as Doxa alays been since 1968

    Breitling with this model is trying to "win a race of spec" ... but for WHAT ? 3000 meters ? ... no rzal issue there at the exception of making a monstruous watch (size an thickness) : I am a diver I have always dived with watch 200 meters or more rated it is by far sufficient and even excessive : historically Doxa have proposed "deep" WR but this is NOT an issue or a factor of choice : if you are a diver or even a non diver keep in mind that theses values are marketing nothing else

    Movements of the watch are the same so no issue there ... SO ?

    if you want a REAL dive watch with a LOT of history under its belt : First company to introduce deco bezel, first company to have a HRV valve on a dive watch ... Watches used by Cousteau team ... go Doxa ! , bare in mind than more of 50% of doxa owners REALLY dive (look at the poll here) this is FACTS

    if you want a "hi tech hype spec" , a known brand by the average "Joe" go Breitling , Breitling impress people , Doxa is by far less known : this is also a FACT

    if you are a diver : go for Doxa : Stainless steel is superior to Titanium for scratches and my Doxa did not suffer at all of a full month diving , all my titanium diving watches have been badly scratched : Breitling watches are difficult to rince specially because of the bezel wich is a real sand magnet (horriible noises when you move the bezel after a sandy dive) , Doxa Bezel is great for that ! , the lower profile and the size of doxa is better for diving

    Price : compare :)

    I do think you have sufficient inputs to choose

    If I didn't have a dive computer on the other wrist, then I'd take the Doxa, for the bezel. If I did have a dive computer, then the Breitling because it's the better watch as far as depth rating and having the helium valve.

    I feel quiet surprised as a diver to read this ...
    you mean you are using the US Navy 1973 tables for your dives ? hum ... do you know they are not at all up to date and not conservative ???
    I do not know what about the regulation in the US but in France you need either to dive with a computer OR with updated tables + a watch + a depth meter so you could not actually dive relying only on a old table
    you say hat if you dive with a computer ... you need a 3000 meters depth rating ? are you SERIOUS ? , I would be also interested to know your use of the helium valve ... are you a saturation diver ????

    Dude, you are taking my answer way too seriously . All these "which watch would you pick" polls are just good fun.
