    several months with my Divingstar GMT

    Well I've have my DivingStar GMT for a few months now. Some thoughts on it. This is by no means a technical review or even really a review at all.
    Just random thoughts about a watch.

    I was very reluctant to buy this watch at first because of it's sheer size and weight. I usually stick to watches in the 36-38mm range if possible with some exceptions with Ti watches due to a smallish wrist.

    I loved the dial and the specs. though and was hungry for a yellow dial.
    When I got the watch I immediately loved it but still wasn't sure about the sheer mass of the beast, but as I've worn it I've found it to be incredibly comfortable. To me it 'wears lighter'
    I'm not sure why this is, possibly the case back design or the head to bracelet balance ratio, but I love wearing it most of the time.

    The quality of mine was superb. especially the crown feel is very nice.

    And as it seemed to be the hot topic awhile back. It's great that it's a limited Ed. or limited production. Whatever it doesn't really matter to me. I would have bought it either way, 200 pieces or 1000 or unlimited prod.

    It's a fabulous watch.

    Do I wish it was smaller and lighter..YES. But I still love it. Maybe someday Doxa will make a smaller version, maybe even in Ti but I won't hold my breath, and until then I will enjoy this beauty.

    Sorry for the long rambling post.

    Scott - thanks for sharing your impressions and giving us an update. I haven't seen one of those in person (I did see and handle a GMT Carib though) and in my opinion the Divingstar is the most legible and easy to read of the GMT's because it doesn't seem as busy to me.

    I like them all, don't get me wrong, but that's just my opinion. Have any photos to share?

    Cheers,

    Avi

    Here's a scan:




    There are other much better pics on this site but this is my 750T GMT.

    Thanks for the great scan Scott.

    This is one sweet watch that is apparently in high demand. I just saw one on the Bay go for $500 more than it cost new.

    I missed out the first time around but thankfully they're being re-released in October.

    Wow - that is yellow. Is that just the color of the picture - or does it really look like that? Most pictures I have seen are more Mustard in color.

    The scan is pretty close. That's about what it looks like in the sunshine. Indoors it looks a bit more mustard color.

    When you see it beside other yellow watches it definitely has a more mustard hue than say lemon or sun yellow.

    There is a really good comparison shot between it and the 600T Divingstar on the forum. You can really see the difference.

    Whatever it is I like it a lot. It's just right.

    I used to be a DS GMT owner and loved the color and size, but I found it more confusing to tell the time with the GMT hand against the yellow background. The GMT pro and Carib seem easier with a darker background. Still a great watch! As with many, wish I still had it!
