    The Super Sub 4/10

    Guys, I am pleased to bring you the next feature of the Super Sub. This is the picture that I was sent from Doxa. I am very excited because I think that it reveals several aspects even though it was focused on the 4th revealed feature.

    The Super Sub has Stainless Steel hour-markers. I believe that this is an exciting new feature for a couple reasons. First, it allows the application of more luminosity while keeping the lume secure. Second, it just looks really cool.

    This does incur more expense for Doxa because they did it right. Each of the hour markers have been WELDED onto the dial. Not only is this a painstaking procedure, but it also makes it much more difficult to paint the dial.

    I am really starting to get excited about this watch. It truly is the evolutionary step for Doxa watches

    Best Regards,
    Jason

    Wow, wow, wow....just superb!

    I never expected this feature and its gonna make for a realy classy looking dial.

    I think I can also see another cool feature I can get excited about. Polished centre links. I can just see some parts of the end links which look polished so I'm really hoping the bracelet will be part polished

    Well.. the other shoe has dropped for me.

    Synchron era case thickness had me pleased, He valve was a given to qualify as "Super-Anything!, Thick heavy duty bracelet was a bonus, Applied indeces look good and will reflect lume making it effectively brighter (..always a bonus)...

    BUT..

    The feature I've been holding my breath to see.. the Make/Break detail for me, was a domed crystal. And the crystal in that photo is domed or I need my eyes checked out!

    I am a happy camper now!

    I spy.....

    Yep, looks like a moderately domed crystal. Anyone notice anything else?

    Have a look at the date. Unless I'm mistaken, there appears to be a cyclops.... under the crystal

    ETA: Okay, so no cyclops. So, I'm guessing it is the metal (same as the applied indecies) that is outlining the date window. Here's an idea, what say you spin the damned thing and let us have a look!

    Exactly what I was afraid of....the micro ticks on the dial. Now add in the shiny baubles on the dial, and it's definitely a no-go for me. Man, I'm disappointed. If this is the direction that DOXA is headed, then there won't be any new DOXAs on my horizon.

    Anybody want to sell their 600Ts?

    I love the ss hour markers. I think it will look especially cool on the sharkhunter edition. Like the domed crystal as well.

    Is that a white second hand on a pro? Has that been done before?

    I was hoping for a more different design element to really make this watch stand out from the other Doxas. Many of the design features (except the bracelet) look the same with only a change in finish or color.

    From a few feet away, it seems it will appear as a 750T with a new bracelet. Why not change the shape of the markers and the shape of the second hand to really make it look different.

    While the domed crystal is OK, I prefer a flat crystal that isnt distorted from the side like in the picture.
