    What is this Doxa?

    Just saw this on the bay and it looks like it may be a lady's size. Can anyone tell me about it? Is it worth $1000? Looks like the bracelet is a version of the vintage Sub300. Here's the auction link.

    Page 251 in the Book, Ray. Possibly one of the last Doxa SUBs made in the 1980s before SUB production stopped.

    Hi, this is one of the last DOXA SUBs made in the late Eighties, it is authentic and IMO, has one of the nicest looking (non no decompression tabel) bezels

    Thanks, Pete. How does this one compare to, let's say, the 600T? Is it similiar in size? Also, is the bracelet, by chance, the same as the one on the original 300Ts? I may bid on it for my wife.
    Best Regards,

    I've never had one in my hands, Ray so I can't be 100% sure but an educated guess would say that it is the same size as the Aubry 600T. The bracelet is bigger and heavier than the original 300T. The clasp is heavier and the ratcheting mechanism is sturdier. Page 11 and 17 of the book shows the clasp differences.

    Hmmm, looks like I need to pick up a copy of your book. Now, you're costing me money. Touche!

    Sorry, for some reason I thought you had it. I've sent a couple out to several Rays. I just assumed you were one of them.

    No idea if it worth $1000 as an investment, but (to me) a masterpiece of it's time; regardless of what's inside. You only have to watch it :))

    Rayk,
    This is a pretty big watch. I have had a couple of Aubrey era 600T's and they are as big or bigger than the old 300T's and thicker. Very nice watches but certainly not a ladies size like the Coralline.

    I agree with Rick on the bezel, very nice looking.

    As to the book costing you money? If you intend to buy any vintage SUBS, chances are it will SAVE you MANY times it's price by making you a MUCH more educated collector. Plus, it's just plain fantastic!
