In the spirit of Christmas and out of an abundance of jealousy, I thought up this challenge for the potential SUB 5000T owners. . . Assuming these ship early next week, you ought to be receiving your new watch a couple days before Christmas. Anyone tough enough to hold off on even breaking the shipping tape until Christmas morning? :)

Anyone? Bueller? Of course, someone out there is thinking. . . no, I need to see wrist shots! I say to them, don't worry, these 5000T guys are as tough as they make themselves out to be. ;-)

What do you say?

I'm happy to report that, being Jewish, I am under no constraints to prove my toughness by waiting until Christmas. :)

Cheers,

Avi

More than happy to, Kev - although I don't think I'll be the first to get one, as I only put my order in recently. Maybe I'll be opening that box on Christmas after all...:think:

:-d

Cheers,

Avi

I will probably meet the Fedex guy on the curb, not much patience here I'm afraid. This 5000T thing has made me feel like a kid again, waiting for Santa to arrive. I am not sure i can sleep tonight just thinking about it.:-d

Have some sympathy for me guys. I got my 5000T shipping notice today but to save on Philippine customs, it is being shipped to a friend in Connecticut. I will not even see it until January 7th when I come over for a business trip....

:-d After all the Chrismas festivities with family, friends and assorted sniveling children has gone bye bye for the year, I will, in the quiet late evening hours pour myself a lovely fine old cognac and then, and only then will I open my present to myself...a brand new doxa 5000T Pro. And lest I seem truly grinchy to you all let me wish all of you at the WUS Forum a very Merry Christmas and I hope you get the Doxa you truly want especially before the returning customer discount runs out.
Regards
Geoffrey

You ask me how tough I am…. Let me see………. Ok, thought about it for 2 seconds…. I’m not tough, I have no will power, I am “WEAK” the Fedex truck will be here tomorrow, and I am off, so there is not-a-chance-in-He** that I could/would/want to wait…. Heck, I’ll be ripping open the box as I grab it from his hands… Will be wearing it 15min later once it is sized….. So again you ask “how tough am I” I am not tough at all. But that’s ok with me, for tomorrow I will be the proud new owner of a 5000T and loving every moment of my weak self… :-!

No way will I be able to wait 'til Christmas!!!! My wife and I will be leaving for Connecticut to visit family the weekend before X-mas and through the holiday, so I hope it arrives before then so I can take it with me. Sorry but I won't be able to post pics until we get back home later that week.

Great responses from all you lucky 5000T owners! Geoffery wins the "solid as a rock" award for at least planning on waiting. Geoffery, please let us know if you are able to hold out. By the way, that sounds like a wonderful plan for the unveiling. Sort of reminds me of the scene in the modern Thomas Crown Affair movie, when he hangs his newly acquired painting in a cellar, opens a fine bottle of wine and quietly appreciates it in solitude.

Looking forward to the photos guys!

My 5000T is fantastic ... I must have set my 750T wrong, I'm sure it said the 25th in the date window when I opened my box .... maybe the 750 isn't working correctly ... It is a good thing my 5000T is here ... now I don't have to worry about the date window being wrong. hahahahaha :-!
