Since it's been sort of a slow morning here on the forum, I thought we might do another one of these.

I haven't had this one out in a long time - grandpa's watch. It makes me think about the Doxa tank...



it sure feels............ small.

I'm wearing the Pro today.

I met up with another forum member at the No.Cal. AD this weekend. He had a stunning collection of Doxas - Nymph, DS 600, Caribbean GMT, 750 DS COSC, Mil Shark and 750 Pro. Anyway, we were chatting it up for good long while. I kept staring at his wrist, he was wearing a 750 DP Pro. It occurred to me, I had never seen someone else wearing an Orange face Doxa (my father and brother both wear Sharks). Anyway, his love for his orange Doxa was contagious. I found myself wishing I had one too. Then I looked at my own wrist and saw this.

Meeting up with other Doxaholics makes this all so much more fun. I am truly rediscovering this watch. Thanks John! It was a pleasure meeting you and your lovely wife Kathy.

Sad thing is, as soon as I read this much of your post I knew exactly who you were talking about:-d:-d:-d:-d:-d


John and Kathy are GREAT people, aren't they?? I had the pleasure of meeting them at the CC convention in Charleston, SC. That NYMPH is Spectacular, Huh??

Today, I am wearing the 750T Pro with a GMT bracelet. I am wearing this one while we wait for his cousin (DS GMT) to arrive via Fed-Ex. It always amazes me that Doxa can ship it out on Friday afternoon and it can be here by Monday. Excellent Job Doxa!!

BTW, I just took this pic and realized.........Not only did I totally copy Kev's Pose, I need to set the date:rodekaart:oops::oops:

This weekend I threw on a Brand New Doxa Leather strap with orange stitching onto my 300T Sharkhunter Reissue. Feels like a new watch again!!!

This one one's on the job today. Life's too short to worry about snooty types who don't think an orange dial belongs in the office!

Here Here! I couldn't agree more. You have a really nice glow going on that 300T photo - I still think they had exceptional lume compared to many of my other SUBs...

Hi Thor,
Refering to your Elgin Tank. please take in mind that Doxa makes not only the modern version but on the bay, for less than 100 $ you can buy the mechanical Doxa Tank watches from the nineteenthirties.
Regards,
Adrian.

I'm horrible at taking pics but here's the strap I have as shown on Pete's website.
It's in the upper right corner in the 1st pic.

Below I attached the pic from Pete's site as well.
I just REALLY like seeing wrist shots of that 300T reissue Sharky. That is one rare bird, and I have never had mine on my wrist.o|o|o|
