Wanted to share this early Sharky. I hadn't seen one before but found an Italian ad with a picture, so not a Franken. Same case as the Eberhard Scafograf and similar to the SM300, including the nice domed crystal. Probably from before Jacques Cousteau got involved and created the Doxa we all love today.

Thanks for posting. I've not seen a Shark dash Hunter before, either. Nice dial, hands, bezel...and I love those lugs! Wish there were photos of the crown and back.

I love those pre-Sub Sharkhunters, and it would be awesome if DOXA reissued a series of those.

I agree. Doxa has a number of really cool watches from their past that they could reissue. The Sub is obviously the coolest - but if they were to put out a limited run of these (especially at a lower cost than the Sub), and I'd be really tempted.

Unreal. I'd love to know more about this as well – sounds like it pre-dates the Erschle-developed orange dials then?

Definitely more inline with skindiver's watches of the 60s than the sub...it would be a interesting $1000sh reissue project for Doxa.
Most of the skindiver watches I've seen are in the 36/38mm range. This is in the 42/43mm range, similar to the SM300.

I agree with using this as a reissue project for Doxa. They could provide another option to their current lineup, since it has such a beautiful classic dive watch case and clearly a Doxa.

Agree. Would love to hear from anyone that knows more.

Maybe Doxa can chime in with some history! ;-)

I absolutely love this watch. The dial, the hands, the bezel - they all work for me. The only thing detracting a bit is the crown - I would have liked it a bit longer.

The Longines compressor was 42mm if I recall correctly, this case looks like a Speedmaster's one without pushers

Is that a bakelite bezel? If re-issued that could be an excuse for a sapphire bezel to keep the retro look. Haven't seen pics of one of these for a good while now. Definitely a looker.

I have one of these. I'll post some pictures later today. I believe there were three dial iterations with variations on what is written below shark Hunter. As stated, it appears to be the exact same case as the Eberhard Scafograf 300. I'm not sure what they are worth, but if it's anything like the Scafograf, it's a fair bit. Thanks for posting
