Doxa Sub 750T GMT Professional Review

Doxa Sub 750T GMT Professional Watch Review
  Doxa has released the 750T in a GMT version. This is the Doxa Sub 750T GMT Professional, other available versions are the Sharkhunter, Caribbean, and Divingstar. All four version are limited to 1000 pieces each. 
  Somewhat unique for a dive a watch is the GMT complication. The 750T GMT then furthering separates it’s self from other GMT divers by displaying three times zones, opposed to the standard second timezone only. The ability to tell a third timezone is achieved by the use of a 24 hour internal rotating bezel. An oversized skeleton hand is used for the GMT hour complication, very cool. The internal bezel is rotated by a screw down crown located at the 2 o’clock position. Powering the watch and GMT hour hand is the trusted ETA 2893-2 automatic movement. A white date window is displayed at the 3 o’clock position, would have preferred the use of a black date wheel here instead. The rice style bracelet has that great retro vibe about it and goes nicely with the overall aesthetics of the Sub 750T GMT Professional. It is a good sized watch for a 21mm bracelet, most watches at this size move up a 22mm bracelet. The bracelet of course comes with a divers extension. If you are in the market for a dive watch steeped in history the Doxa 750T GMT is worth looking into. It has a lot of value at this price point and all the versions are Limited Edition.

Pros - GMT complication, 3 timezones, ETA 2893-2

Consideration - The bracelet is either love it or hate it
