    First Doxa: 1200t or 800ti??

    I've been trying to decide which Doxa to buy as my first one and would love some advice! I've been a long time fan and I've narrowed it down to the 1200 and the 800ti. I definitely want the orange face, but I can't decide whether to go full classic with the beads of rice bracelet or be a little more modern with the titanium. Any thoughts??

    For your first, go 1200t with the orange dial.

    I was in the same boat and I went with the 1200. To me it is more "classic". There will most likely be an 800ti in my future .

    Go big or stay home...1200
    Helium release full tilt boogie. Sometimes understated classic wins the show IMHO

    Agree with the other posters, 1200!

    Another vote for the 1200T, either Professional or Sharkhunter, IMHO.

    I'd actually vote for either! Lot of good that opinion is! What are you wearing now? Maybe if you have several other watches that are similar, then maybe titanium with tritium would be different enough to be the better choice in that case.

    I prefer the 1200t, but both are great watches. The 800t is definitely bulkier, so wrist size may be a factor.

    +1. I love my 1200t orange.

    I got the 800 with the tritium in titanium

    Its very light for its bulk

    However, it has been my single least reliable watch out of a collection of 60

    It spent a total of 9 months at the factory and a lot of angst to get sorted out.

    Be wary is my advice

    I mean I know any manufacturer can have an of day, but the grief I had to go through to claim on the warranty was in complete contrast to the other rare experiences I'v had in dealing with Swiss & English made pieces that had problems

    I love the watch, it's look & its history, but I'd never deal with them again
