Last Wednesday, I finally pulled the trigger on a new 750T Searambler. I have been wanting one since the summer, but never got around to ordering. Every time I was about to place the order, something always came up which prevented it. I always felt better by telling myself, "Don't worry there's plenty. Just get one later on". Well, the day had come and "later on" had to be now. I knew with only a few remaining, if I didn't move quickly, my window of opportunity would be closed forever.

Today was the much anticipated day of arrival. The FedEx guy knocked on the door about an hour ago, and I flew down the stairs to answer it. Since this was my first Sub purchased directly from DOXA, I decided to grab the camera and document the unveiling.

For those of you who have never ordered directly from DOXA....here's what you're in for.:-!

Just a box, plain and simple but we all know...this is where "plain and simple" come to an end......



Now, let's see what's inside. With a bit of brown paper packing removed, this is starting to look more like it......



Ah, now to see if they sent the correct watch. Yes!! Yes they did!!:-!......



Since I only wear one DOXA at a time, I thought it wise to move my already sized and scuffed Caribbean bracelet, over to the 'Rambler. This way it gives me a pristine bracelet to keep in reserve and also removes a lot of that "new watch" anxiety. You know, where you walk around for the first couple of weeks being super careful not to get the slightest little scuff.;-)

So here goes, off with the new......



And, on with the old......



Now, everything is complete and ready to go. Man, am I stoked!!!:-!:-!

I'll keep you guys posted, but I know I'm going to love it. I just wish I could put it through it's paces on a dive, but I won't be back in the water 'till at least sometime in January. That is unless someone decides to take a one-way swim in a mud hole around here.;-)

I know it's going to be great there too. The red and black hands contrast nicely against the sunburst-silver dial. Legibility will be awesome.|> Plus there's just something cool about a dive watch with the word "sea" in it's name.:-!

Who's the pretty lady you ask? Why, it's Mrs. Subkrawler. That was 14 years ago at the tender age of 20. Not much has changed though.:)

I want a searambler so bad. I'm trying to convince myself that it will be an investment because of their rarity, right? And at the returning customer's price? Come on guys. Talk me into it. Even if they make a 1000T version it will not be as rare, with 5000 being made of each of the models. They would probably never get to 5000 mark for the 1000T searambler.
What is it about rarity that makes me want to get it? I guess I like to know that I'll probably never see anyone else with it on. I guess that is one of the reasons I love Doxa. I said 'one' of the reasons...
I can't wait to get the stats on how many of each of the 750T model were made. This info should be coming soon.

Enjoy that one. I like your idea of keeping the bracelet pristine.:-!

Subkrawler,
Congrats on the Searambler, I do love that sunburst effect on the dial.
I was expecting to hear that you had ordered a 750 COSC DS. You seemed to be crazy about them when we were in Cayman.
As for the pretty lady in the picture, how did you ever snag a looker like that:-d, and one that lets you go galavanting all over scuba diving with perfect strangers, and doesn't tear you apart for buying watches.

I only have one question does she have a sister that likes fat old men?;-)

Take care Randy

Diverj, if you want one, you better pull the trigger soon. Imagine how sick you'll be when DOXA makes that announcement "The Searambler is sold out" and you were so close to placing the order.;-)

That's how I felt when I read the same thing about the Milshark. I was wanting one of those too, screwed around and missed the boat. I wasn't about to let that happen with the 'Rambler.:)

Another thing....if you're a lume freak, the lume is awesome on this watch. Makes my Caribbean look pale and dim in comparison.

Oh, and about rarity. I'd be surprised if they made more than 100. My guess is somewhere around 75.

Thanks and about that mistake......you screwed up big time!:-d:-d:-d:-d:-d The good thing, is that there's still time to rectify. All you have to do is hit the "Place Order" button.:-d

Thanks Joe, this is a club that I'm very proud to be in. I have no doubt, that this is one that I'll enjoy immensely!:-!

You'd better listen to what Subkrawler says. From the looks of the new Doxas like the 1000s and 5000s they're going to make runs of 5000 per model. This is it for the 750Ts. If you wait for Doxa to publish the numbers you'll have waited too long cause Rick has said that they aren't going to give out numbers till they're all sold out. So You'd better pull the trigger and get a returning customer discount while they last.|>


Joe

PS That's the best enabler spiel I can come up with:-d:-d:-d. I got my Rambler You need to get yours.:-d:-d

750T Divingstar? What Divingstar?;-)

How did I snag the Mrs? Good question. Well, if it hadn't been for a bit of dumb luck, and my old friend Jack Daniels(providing me with a little liquid courage), I never would have mustered the nerve to even go talk to her. Once the ice was broken, you know...the rest is history.:)

Before we were married, she knew there were two things that she'd never stop me from doing. One was riding my HD and the other was diving. Those two things predated her by many years, so she knew there was no point in trying.

Can't help you with the sister thing, since she doesn't have a sister. Just a brother who goes for Middle Eastern chicks.:-d:-d:-d

Ty - first off, congratulations on snagging what must be one of the most unique and beautiful watches out there.

Tell the brother-in-law to give me a call - I know a thing or two about Middle Eastern chicks, having been raised in the area. They're gorgeous, mysterious, beguiling and INFURIATING. Gotta love the spicy ones. :-d:-d:-d:-d

Cheers,

Avi

:-d:-d:-d Quite right Avi, though not all of them drive you up the wall! :-d

Congrats on the Searambler subkrawler. Sweet piece. Put myself off ordering one for a long time now because of the 750 size but last week put in my order. Now anxiously waiting for the shipment confirmation. Post us some more pics will ya! ;-)

Since I bought my Searambler, it has become my favorite - over my Professional and the Sharkhunter. I would love to know the exact number that were made.

Congrat's Ty.

I had a similar experience today. I've been eyeing the regular 750T Sharkie ever since I got my Mil Shark. I knew they were coming close to the end so i placed an order last week. Today, FedEx made their money once again with the delivery of an identical box to yours right to my office here in Kabul. So, I snuck away for a few minutes to open, size, set and put on my new prize.

These things truly are addictive aren't they...just out of curiosity, are the 750T COSC Carribbeans still avialable or are they all gone?

WHEW!!! Is that opening a can of worms or what:-d:-d:-d

I will defer this answer to Ty as he is the only person in the world to own 2 of these and is the resident expert on the topic;-)
