    Seeking Professional Help

    Hi all,

    New to the DOXA forum and wanted to get some info from all you distinguished Sub owners. Keeping it simple, do any of you find the polished surfaces on the case and bracelet at times to be too much? I'm a brushed SS kinda guy, but I am concerned that I might have a hard time getting use to all the shine. Any info/advice would be greatly appreciated!

    -John

    it's never bothered me a bit, and I despise glitz and flash.

    Cool idea, but I wouldn't want to mess with originality.

    I've generally been a fan of brushed over polished myself. But the relatively few polished surfaces of my 1200T actually make it more eye-catchingly attractive, not less. I love this look!

    Try Doxa Sub 800Ti which is a combination or a Military PVD

    The titanium is a little too light feeling. Any issues with the PVD rubbing off?

    1) Not in conjunction with steel 2) PVD can scratch and the steel shows through (good point)

    Ray, all of the reissue Subs, (starting back in 2002) have a combination of polished, brushed, and in most instances...satin blasted finishes.
