I'm new to this forum but have lurked before and am just looking for a little help on which Doxa to purchase. I've always wanted one but it's taken me many years to convince myself to spend the money but it feels like now is the time. I currently have a 1st gen Seiko orange monster as a reference point.
I have done lots of reading up on the different subs and decided the 1500t was the one for me. I like the traditional word placement and the sound of the A10 movement. I really like the BOR bracelets but equally like the 1500ts modern take on it. Went to order last week and it said sold out! Gutted. I have emailed Doxa and tried to call on Thursday and Friday but no answer yet, I'm desperately hoping they are getting more in but I'm guessing that's it.
So with that aside I don't know what to go for. I'm not loving the 6000t face and central writing, doesn't seem right but, it's the same size and has the A10 movement and new bracelet. On the other side there is the 1200t. BOR bracelet and traditional face but it's got the ETA movement (should that bother me? Doesn't seem quite as nice as the A10 in design and the A10 is a little more uncommon) and more importantly, I'm worried it would be too small. So....has any one got any pearls of wisdom for me? Also, has anyone got any size comparison m&s of either next to a Seiko monster? My wrist is approx 7inch.
It's so tough to gauge the size without seeing them.
Many thanks in advance,
