Hi Simon,

Hi Thor

Thanks ! I have to admit I spotted this on flebay. It belonged to a retired dive master who never went under the water but looked after 8 divers from the top. One of his divers gifted it to him in early 70s. Local horologist gave it the once over - oiled,greased seal,free off bezel,replaced z springs in strap,black wax on inner numerals. He recons its woking ok and does not need a full service. Amazing condition for its age. Andy at doxa recons early 70s. Lucked out for my first doxa, been trying for one for about two years but with limited funds you know how hard it can be ! Still cant stop smiling. Simon

Hi Andy

I had a hair trigger over loads of Doxas but not enough courage but when I spotted this vintage one I had to have it ! Sorry mate ! Simon
