I saw a post by him at WUS about this watch and he had positive things to say about it. I just purchased a blue dial one so we shall see.

Not sure how much I will like the Doxa look but for evaluation purposes the price was right. I will review it after a few weeks of wearing it. Next is a breitling headwind if I can find one at the right price. I am cheap.

No much of a Doxa look, "sans the bezel" that was probably made in the same, or near by place as Doxa commision their parts in Hong Kong, using the same CAD files.
1960/70's Seiko cushion case and crown position at 4, beads of rice watch bracelet "look" is a Gerald Genta creation for Omega, long before Doxa .
Here is my LE, probably the best micro, I ever owned.

Looks very nice Alain, I keep switching mine between the bracelet (digging the also Seiko inspired, ratcheting dive extension clasp) and different leather straps.
Noticed that the second hand is also different in yours? don't remember seeing that before...looks good!

My current version which I much prefer over a Seiko even after all these years. Better fit, nicer bracelet and far better movement IMHO.
