    T-Graph 300 Question

    Hello existing 300T-Graph owners!

    I would like your input on the new design. Do any of you have both 300 T graph and 600 T graph? I am trying to decide if i want a 300 T graph. I really love my 600 T graph Pro, but im not entirely sold on the 300/4000T case design. I find the watch appealing, but i hate to break away from the original case/bracelet design.

    Any thoughts, pictures, ect..... (Also if you were in my shoes would you hold out for the new proclaimed "ultimate classic" Doxa that is suppose to come out this or next year, or stick with the 300 T Graph?)

    To clarify I'm looking at the standard decompression bezel Professional model.

    Thank you!

    The 300T Graph has the same movement as the 600T Graph: ETA 2894 which is better than the 7750 movements one finds in chronographs other makes. The 300T Graph has a HRV/HEV, larger case, better bracelet with a ratchet extension system in the clasp to graduate the extra length, more secure with the way the bracelet attaches to the lug, the date numerals is inward which most of the 600T Graphs are outward. Some 600T Graphs only have two registers or totalizers, which means there are no hours to measure! I would suggest you keep your 600T Graph Pro even if it is a two register dial as it is a Holy Grail piece now a classic. You will regret parting with it. I have a 300T Graph with the sapphire bezel and I really love it as a keeper and would not sell it to get yours. I have 4 other Doxa Subs with the standard decompression scale bezels, three are professionals

    Great insight! Thank you! I was not really thinking of getting rid of the 600T but I was thinking of another Doxa and since I love chronos I was highly considering the 300T.

    So your saying that as a watch the 300T is a better product?

    IMO - yes the 300T Graph is the way to go as the bracelet, ratchet system, construction as well as size with the HRV/HEV, three registers totalizers with hour measurement with the date numerals in the proper direction inward with the same 2894 movement - absolutely! I love my 300T Graph Pro (with sapphire bezel that illuminates from 0 to 15 mins) and have the most compliments of all the watches I have (36 in total). It is so hard to beat this one and you may wish to play it safe by getting the Doxa bezel instead but as you have that on your 600T Graph, the sapphire bezel may be for you as you wear it regularly, there will be no scratches!

    Thanks for sharing. Anything you don't like about it? Is the HRV Valve of center on the case like the 1200t?

    The HRV/HEV is in the center like 1200T, 1500T, 4000T (same case) and 5000T. There is really nothing I do not like about it. Very well thought out, quality of construction and surgical 316L stainless steel is superb. I am surprised that the maximum depth water resistance is 300m/1,000ft for the same case and crystal as the 4000T, which is 1,200m/4,000ft when the chronograph buttons are screw down. I personally do not care as I cannot see myself diving 100m/330ft let alone 300m/1,000ft! If your wrist is over 6.75 inches then it should be able to handle the extra large size. It is a heavy watch by comparison to the smaller Subs. A titanium stainless steel metal mixture like the 800Ti may be the right balance putting the titanium in the middle links on the bracelet and buckle only to shave off some weight for better center of gravity. I am being very critical here on a hindsight 20/20 basis.

    Here is a photo of the watch and the sapphire bezel makes it look very classy. I sat next to someone on an airplane and the bezel together with the orange dial caught his eye.

    Re: T-Graph 300 Question

    I now have both the 300T and 600T Graph - one keeps the 600T with a two registered version as a nostalgia of the 1967 200T Graph and the three register 600T Graph version IMHO is now superseded by the modern 300T Graph with the case, bracelet and HRV/HEV. As the case of the 300T is the same as the 4000T , I suspect that the depth of the 300T could exceed 300M/660ft, which the majority of us would never go beyond. The 600 T Graph 40th Anniversary Edition I now have will never be worn whereas the 300T Graph with the sapphire bezel is my weekend regular wear.
