    Re: DOXA's Next Generation SUB - and a poll!

    For me:

    -Steel
    -750T size, but a little bit thicker maybe 15 - 15.5mm thick
    -Rice-bead bracelet, 22mm at the lugs and tapering to 20mm at the clasp using the ratcheting 5000T-style clasp
    -Applied Lume
    -ETA 2892-2 Movement
    -Bezel that can be user removed and user re-installed for cleaning purposes
    -Deeper engraved numbers on the outer bezel to allow for many more times of refinishing over the years.
    -No HRV

    This would be the ultimate divewatch for me.
    Best Regards,
    Jason

    Re: DOXA's Next Generation SUB - and a poll!

    This is my choice:

    MATERIAL: Steel - I like the weight and the substantial feel. Titanium just feels flimsy.

    SIZE: I prefer the larger SUB750T size. Specifically, I like the case of the SUB5000T with the Helium escape valve.

    BRACELET: The traditional "Rice Beads", hands down! It should remain non-tapering since this distributes the weight better on the wrist. You can use the beefy rice bead bracelet of the GMT, but it has to be connected by screws (not spring bars/push pins) and should have the SUB5000T's automatic dive suit extension.

    LUME: If you could make luminous gas vials that would be shaped rectangular/brick-like (NOT cylindrical) so that it would fit perfectly inside the traditional Doxa black indices (raised - like in the SUB5000T) and hands, then that would be awesome. If not, then painted on lume but with raised black metal indices and hands will do. As you noticed, I kept on insisiting that the metal indices and hands be black and NOT polished as with the SUB5000T - resist the bling!

    MOVEMENT: ETA 2892-2 COSC

    DIAL: Orange (of course!) with traditional placement of imprinting.

    IN CONCLUSION: I want a "Classic" version of a SUB5000T!

    I just want Doxa to go one step up on the dive watches world and issue an 5000t with a power reserve indicator. They have one now so might as well use it together with a heavier lume. That's all!!

    Re: DOXA's Next Generation SUB - and a poll!

    My choice:

    Material: STEEL (Ti is just too light and unsubstantial feeling)
    Size: 750/5000T size (love the thickness of the 5000T)
    Bracelet: Beads of rice (keeps it vintage, but make it thick like the 5000T links) - all brushed too, none of that mixed finish
    Applied lume (always prefer SL over tritium, which glows dimly all the time and reminds me of the "dependability" of quartz...boooring!)
    Movement: 2892-2
    Lots of dive watches.

    Re: DOXA's Next Generation SUB - and a poll!

    Here's my dream watch:

    Material: Titanium

    Size: 750T

    Bracelet: Beads of rice, with screw connectors and the 5000T ratchet mechanism with micro adjust slots

    Lume: Heavy applied lume unless you can do the rectangular tritium

    Movement: 2892-2

    Other: Removable bezel
    Could go either way with the HRV
    Black indices and hands
