    Sub 300 50th Anniversary on MN strap

    Package arrived before 10AM Monday. After the initial realization how small the dial is, which lasted about 5 secs, I put the watch on the wrist only to realize that I really don't care for BOR bracelets. Tools out and dug up a Marine Nationale/MN strap from Erika Original - looks and wears much better IMO.

    Looks nice....but I haven't been able to get myself to "play Barbies" with straps yet. I have generally not worn newer DOXA's on their bracelets because of their weight and my love for real, vintage, beads. For some reason though, the 50th is different. It's wearing so very nicely.

    Mmm..no.

    Much better with the original bracelet IMO, it's very well made, even if I would have preferred to have tapered to 18mm.

    The BOR is in Doxa's DNA, I would change it just for a rubber band like the one they showed on one Sharkhunter, but it appears it's available just in black.

    I think it's a great watch on any strap.

    I have not yet received my Sub 300 yet, can someone who has please confirm the band width at lugs? Their website says 22mm (if memory serves) but the pics of the MN strap above (which is 21mm) nearly make the distance b/w lugs appear to be 20mm.

    The lug-width is 20 mm.
