    Doxa Vintage Pilot...

    Got the notice this morning that my auto pilot is shipping today and will be here tomorrow. I know all you sub fanatics have no interest but it will be nice to see something different from Doxa and this watch certainly look like it will be a beauty.

    Looking forward to the pics! Some of us "sub guys" have interest in that watch! I am a huge fan of vintage military watches...

    My admiration for the Doxa SUB watches has progressed to my interest in all Doxa watches, new and vintage. An interest in other dive watches has also been cultivated, but Doxa remains my favorite.

    I'd like to see lots pics of your new Doxa!

    Updates? Are you back in the shop making tools again, too busy to post up some pics?

    I like fliegers. Looking forward to wrist shots. The IWC BP is on my wish list, but this bad boy is very nice looking. Congrats.

    Re: Doxa Vintage Pilot...

    Sorry, got caught up in various things.

    Well, it's a very nice watch. I love the overall design ethos and the fit and finish is superb. Timekeeping is excellent, running a few seconds fast which is always good by me.

    The case is large and right on the edge of what I can wear. I wasn't crazy about the dress strap and deployant that came with it but I'm a big strap kind of guy and I knew going in I'd be changing it right away to something more casual.

    The only real beef I have with it is the crystal. Flat, not domed like I was told it would be. If the crystal were double domed this would have been a much nicer watch IMO and I'd have been glad to pay a couple hundred more for it if necessary. As it is the large diameter combined with the flat crystal make the watch a bit thinner than I like. However, it has been growing on me the past couple of days and it is certainly wearable especially if you have a dress shirt on. Gotta love that vintage look!





    I opted for the automatic version as I already own a similar genre timepiece with a handwind movement.
