Hi to all,
I've been looking for a new watch for some months now and I'm currently leaning towards a sub800ti professional. Until a few weeks back the sub1000t caribbean was my number one choice; I really like the vintage look and the blue dial, but the lack of an orange minute hand on that particular model proved a bit of a deal breaker for me.
But then Doxa released the sub800ti and after seeing some pictures it looks more and more like a no-brainer to me: titanium, tubes and that reduced price offer. Add that to the fact that only 500 will be made opposed to the 5000 for the 1000t caribbean. At first I had some mixed feeling about the use of two tubes on the minute hand, initially it looked a bit odd but after seeing some more pictures it doesn't look that bad at all. The overall look of the 800ti is, of course, stunning to say the least!
The only 'real' problem I have is the combination of the sub800 size and my tiny 6.3" wrist. I've looked at a lot of Doxa wrist shots and there were a few of similar sized wrist wearing a sub750t. After seeing those shots I think that the sub800ti isn't too big but I'm not entirely convinced yet.
Any comment/suggestions and/or some more real life pictures of a sub800 professional would be very much appreciated.
