Dear members, I want to remind those, who wanted to purchase a SUB750T military Sharkhunter, that we are 5 pieces away from being entirely sold out. This model has come to its end of life.

DOXA S.A.

What a great looking watch. I always wanted one but just couldn't come up with the scratch i.e. too many other projects to fund. ;-)

That's one of my favourites, and is a current daily wear - So Doxa, for our interest please could you advise how many were eventually produced?

I feel certain that it is only a matter of time before Doxa comes out with something that is even BETTER in PVD. IMHO it may just take a little while because Doxa has come out with more models than EVER in the last 12 mos.

It will only get better from here on out.:-!

For any who just have to have a 750T in PVD (are the last 5 now gone?), let's not forget that some AD's will/may/do have the COSC version in stock ;-). I recall the Searaider's post mentioning seeing them in Grand Cayman. And I heard a rumor there might be some at an AD right here in my own neck of the woods, who is being stocked possibly this week or next! (Gotta go up and pay them a visit, see what's in stock.... at least I'm certain I can see a 1000T in the "flesh").

Please keep us posted as to whether this AD exists. More and more seem to be popping up all the time...........A very exciting time.:-!

Oh, they exist! I just got off the phone with them, a delightful fellow (the owner) spoke with me a bit. They got some in stock yesterday, will go on display probably tomorrow (the display they've got ordered is not in yet). He's not sure of the models, but knows he's got some 750T (probably COSC) including PVD coated, and also has some 1000T's. And he's got more coming :-!.

Gotta say, the guy really impressed me. Has a total love of the business and watches in general. Also they do their own in house repairs. Finally, I may have found a watch maker I can trust for some things (have a vintage Hamilton that was the first watch my father gave me in bad need of restoration, sounds like they may be the place!).

Maybe this move to retail will be something I can begin to like! Doxa seems to have found a good one with this particular AD b-).

Gotta agree; Love the MIL Sharkhunter 750T! Best watch purchase to date. Anyone have any idea how many were actually made?

As I understand the numbers, there was an initial mentioned run of 'about 100' - then a subsequent batch of 25 was made, which makes 125 Military Sharkhunters out there. it'll be nice to have this confirmed by Doxa. :)

guys, never understook this one!! anyone out there ever in the military?? two major problems never addressed!! when did you ever see a true miltary watch, diving or otherwise without 24 hr. time!! last no us, canadian, german etc gov. issued military diving time piece (they use the 2824-a2 movement in auto. versions) have the out of date, non gov. allowed lume - all use h3 tritium same as gun sites. that baby glows under any conditions without turning on a light to make it work for a few hours. it has a life of 20 years. i own a 750t and soon a 5000t but i dive a marathon g-sar. that is a real military tool watch.

Well, first and foremost, it's a name. Perhaps marketing went a bit far with the pics (which could be paramilitary), but it is a name pure and simple. Of course this was hashed out to death around 2 years ago.

As to "current issue", you may be correct. But I'm wearing my Marathon SAR (original style) which is from the November '04 contract (Canadian Military). There is no tritium, and there are no 24 hour time markers. And this was several contracts into the watch. And there were additional contracts after that. BTW, the original SAR dial is essentially the same markings as a Benrus Type I dial (huge military history). The Type II went to arabics and addressed the 24 hour marking issue. Which is essentially the dial on your G-Sar.

Also, my CWC Royal Navy Diver is exactly as issued by the Brits circa 1981. No 24 hour markers (it's an MOD dial). True, the next year they went to quartz, but kept the same MOD dial.

I do know of at least one professional (private) operator who wears a Doxa 750T Milshark in places such as Afghanistan and Iraq. For me, (a lowly construction worker), I bought mine directly on my return from Iraq. It's a great looking watch, tough as nails, and my second favorite Doxa (gotta go orange first in my book).

JMHO, YMMV. Void where prohibited :-d.

Sold out, almost sold out, in either case, I, like all you other owners, love my 750T Mil Sharkie. I really like my 600T Pro in orange but the mil sharkie has it beat. I know I am in the minority and keep beating this dead horse, but if it could have somehow incorporated Tritrium vials, it would be possibly, the baddest assed watch out there.

But no matter, as long as i can find the bathroom, who cares what time it is.

I think I put mine on at least once a day, no matter what other watch I end up wearing, just to see it on.

Right size, right shape, more WR than I can ever use, and looks *****in.

May never get another DOXA but will keep this one.

paul:-!
