Thread: I'm strangely tempted by this one...

  1. #1

    I'm strangely tempted by this one...

    New Doxa Sub 300T Conquistador reissue. A little too big (42.5mm), a little too thick (14mm), a little too heavy. And yet the orange calls to me...and a great history, of course.

    That doesn't seem like the epitome of your taste in watches but no one claims this is a logical addiction I guess . . .

    I like that one myself. I'm a fan of those beads of rice bracelets. They are super comfortable. I like the turquoise version a little more. I agree about the size and thickness. Wish there was a place to try them on before you buy.

    Totally agree--and yet, it is oddly attractive. Maybe because it's so different than my normal taste?? Kind of like my strange attraction to the Sinn U1.

    Don't worry, though, I haven't bought either of them.

    I've always wanted a Doxa but wondered if it would look good on my wrist... I think the Turtle confirms I could pull one off...maybe.

    Well, yes , can see the apeal, and yes, pretty sure should you go for one it will be fine.
    For me ,and soley my own view, the lob sided hands are a no way. Get a Vostok
