    What shade orange on 1000T Pro dial?

    I'm trying to get a feel for the dial color, and from what I understand it's lighter in color than the other Pros have been. I thought the 300T reissue was just right but also loved the Pro 750T. Not so fond of the Seiko OM because the orange seems too light (almost yellowish) Anyone have comparison pics of the 1000T with other Pros?

    Thanks in advance!

    I think the 1000T dial has a matte finish vs a vibrant orange of the 750T.

    What about the 1000T sharkhunter vs the 750T Sharkhunter. Ive seen some pics where the dial on the 1000T looks more matt as well.

    If anyone has comparison pics of the 1000T vs 750T sharkhunter that would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks

    Pete has the best comparative pics that I have seen for the Professional.

    My understanding is that the 1000T series, being an homage to the vintage Doxa SUB (closest to it they've made yet), all of them have a matte finish dial, with the exception of the COSC series.

    The 1000T COSC however, as I understand it, go with the glossy finish same as the 750T series.
    Regards, T Bone.

    Picture Re: What shade orange on 1000T Pro dial?

    Thanks Scott, it absolutely helped. It seems that the 1000T isnt as flashy as its big brother. Still a nice looking watch thats on my "must have list" because of the vintage look. If you dont mind me asking what wrist size do you have? I have about a 7.0-7.25 inch wrist and was wondering if you thought the 1000T might look to small. I wear a Pro GMT now, and most of the time, it feels as if it fits great, but every now and then I find myself wondering how the 1000T will look. Thanks

    Doc, nice shots of the GMT. I noticed in the photos, that the pond seems to have some pretty good viz. Hmmmmm

    I don't have other Pros, but if it's of any use here are some indoor shots (just room lights, no light box) of my 1000T with my Seiko OM of which you are familiar ... perhaps along with Dr. Pete Millar's comparison shots this will help some with the shade of orange of the 1000T:

    Re: What shade orange on 1000T Pro dial?

    hey,

    not really sure how big my wrist is. medium size if that makes sense. i have a mil ed 750t. for some reason i always felt the 750 was just a shade too big for me. however, i think the black PVD kinda hides the size a bit though. when i saw the 1000 next to a 750 at an AD, I thought wow the 1000 looks small. of course i bought a 1000 anyway :) i have not taken it off my wrist since getting it about four weeks ago. for me, it is the perfect size. here are a few more pics. hope they help. the 1000 seems to be a very close replica of the 300t vintage model.

    regards
