    Cool Please Doxa Please....

    Please bring back the blue bezel numerals on the 1200T Caribbean model, instead of the newer orange numerals. Even if you just have a few of the older blue bezels lying around assemble a few watches with them on it and post them for sale. I bet they sell out as I’m not the only one who REALLY wants one of the older style. I will buy one. I promise!!!

    Cmon, anyone else in for one of the older style?

    Whilst I'm not in the market for a 1200T (still honeymooning with my Poseidon), I completely agree that the blue numbered bezel on the Caribbean looks infinitely better.

    Unsure what was going on when they decided to build the orange bezel version, I'm yet to hear from somebody who prefers that to the colour matched blue.

    I’m not sure. I don’t think the orange looks awful, just the blue is gorgeous

    I agree, blue to match the dial, as they were originally, would look best.

    I also think orange would look good if the minute hand was orange, like on the Shark.

    Never owned a blue watch, but was tempted during the July 4 sale. Blue paint may have put me over the edge.

    I bought one during that sale, and am ready for another. If it’s all blue

    Should I say it?

    I think they went with the Orange bezels because they ran out of blue bezels and now are just throwing orange ones on there.
    I would have bought one already if they had a blue bezel.

    I think it is. I also think in some aspects Doxa's are made to order. I'm waiting on a 1200t Pro.
    I called about switching my order to a 6000t and even though it's listed as instock it has a wait as long as the 1200t

    I think this is what happened and to back this up they still sell the Mission 31 but without the bracelet... like what?

    Gotta say the blue-on-white-on-blue was a real winner...one of my all-time favorite Doxas.

    Doubt I'd have made the purchase of an orange/blue configuration.
