New Doxa in da House! Errrrrr, what?

Recommended Posts


Just arrived today, and what a looker! But what the heck IS it?




It’s not a Doxa, it’s a little too big. The shape is right, the details are there...




But what’s with the crown at 4:00?




Great wrist presence, at 44mm it’s beefy but not top heavy.




Ahhhhhh now I see. It’s a Seiko SRP Prospex, designed after the iconic 63xx “Tuna” watches from the 70s but dolled up in Doxa livery with a gorgeous domed sapphire crystal.




Available from our friend Harold at Yobokies.

Love the versatility of the Seiko's. Great movements, endless modding support and variety. And they won't cost you an arm and leg.


Speaking of cost, when the 4R36 needs a service, save yourself a few quid and just replace the movement with a Hattori NH36, swap the rotor and save over half the price of the Seiko 4R36 movement and a fair few quid over the price of a service...Unless you're servicing it yourself😉

That is phenomenal!!  Absolutely genius idea and work.



I can't take much credit for it I'm afraid, I just knew what parts to choose from the nearly endless list.  And voila' a "Doxa" that's arguably more durable and waterproof than the gen, for 1/5 the price.  And it's still a "gen" watch.


I'm toying with an idea.  You know our modders here that have made the *perfect* decals of dials to slide onto gilded base plates?  I'm thinking of a "Black Lung" decal for the 3rd quadrant, but instead of "u.s. divers" make it "arctic divers"      :snorkel:

I think you've opened up a rabbit hole for me with Yobokies, there are so many Seikos I wish just had that extra oomph. 


This, of course, is on another level.  :snorkel:


I didn't know about the decals, that could be an interesting mission ahead for sure.


Since scuba diving is approved exercise here, a new Seiko could be on the cards.
