Hey folks, first of all, I apologize for the lack of content lately. It has been extraordinarily busy at work so I have had bits of lurking, I will be contributing more soon. I haven't done videos in awhile so I shot 3 tonight. Sorry if I am a little rusty.

First is a new one I picked up from the Sales Forum last week and received it Saturday (Thanks Nathan) It's of the very first unmarked Mudman, the DW-8400:


Second is the watch that has taken the most amount of wrist time these days, my Tag Heuer Aquaracer 500M.....


And third is my new Doxa Sub 750T Sharkhunter that I received today from a trade....


I am planning more soon, in the meantime....hope you enjoy :-!

The 8400 is a nice catch...

Good to see you're still in the video review business. Can't view them on my work computer, unfortunately.

I always feel like the IT police are going to break down my door everytime I get that screen at work saying I am unauthorized to view a site :oops: funny the perspectives, eh? :-d

Yessir, very impressive piece this Doxa. Never had interest until that meetup, I got sold, just needed the ways and means :-! We shall be in touch, always like our chats amigo.

Great reviews - congrats
Thanks :thanks

Doxa. What did you trade for that?

I still can't believe you let the 300M Marine Master go.
Traded the X-Wind :) The Tag was such a great replacement for the MM. I may have one in my collection again at some point. :think:

Thanks Tribe....let me just clean the coffee off my keyboard now :-d

Let me 'splain.......years ago when I had enjoyed my first bit of career success before I became a maniac with the watches, I wanted to get myself my first nice watch. I went to a more upscale watch dealer and looked at a variety of watches. I REALLY wanted the Tag Heuer the woman showed me, I think it was a 2000 Professional quartz, but I couldn't afford it :-( So instead I got an ESQ quartz.

I had wanted a Tag since then....always loved the style and admired the Brand (yes I know the stigma amongst many WIS, never really much cared ;-)) Earlier this year I saw the release of the AR500 and definitely wanted to see it in person.

When I had purchased the X-Wind at my AD, they had the AR500 sitting there. I tried it on and it felt right at home. It went from wanting to see one to obsessing in my brain on how to develop the ways and means to own it :-! The MM300 was just the watch to do that. I got an offer I couldn't refuse, I negotiated a KILLER deal with my AD for the Tag, and I have to say it is my personal grail :) It has gotten 90% of the wrist time since I got it, and next to my step father's Seiko and my 5600C, it is up there as the safest watch that will never leave my collection.

So for me, it worked out as a great replacement as a long sought after personal goal for me to obtain :-!

Thanks Doug. Very nice reviews. :-!

That Mudman looks great. It's amazing how much that chunky band and bezel changes the look of what is basically a DW-6900 under the hood. I wish it was easier to get those spare parts now.

for a cheap laugh try playing all three at the same time. maybe something crazy happens like when you play dark side of the moon and the wizard of oz at the same time.
