    Finally the one I've been waiting for! Doxa USA said there's a few left (1600 CST) and unfortunately not taking ser. no. requests on this one. It'd be kinda cool to have #300.

    There was a reader comment on the Hodinkee article that addressed the BoR bracelet described in the article, and an editor's reply to that comment that was even more confusing about the folded over metal bead links of the original vintage bracelets that they define that as individual BoR. Let's just hope that they use the same bracelet that the 50th used! Not sure why they would go backwards and go back to fused BoR or fold over links? The 50th bracelet was perfect! Hodinkee also mentioned that the bezel wasn't lumed at the pip which is odd because the 50th ones were at the Orange dot. It isn't as bright of lume as the dial, but it is present. Again in the same comment as the bracelet, Hodinkee said they might have a prototype. Let's hope it is the same bezel as the 50th!

    The Fratello Watch article that Hodinkee linked to in that same reader response I hope also didn't get a few thing's right. They mentioned a non tapered bracelet, and stamped end links (hope that isn't the same as hollow end links). The pictures they posted looked like they had the 50th TAPERED bracelet, so not sure why the contradiction with their pictures.

    One of the articles mentioned how it would have been nice to see a ratcheting style clasp. I agree. Some more updates over the 50th other than a dial icon would have been nice. I also would have appreciated the Jenny fish logo to be dropped from the clasp. (Aren't the 1500T models without the Jenny Fish?) The unbranded Steinhart OVM clasp is a close match to the 50th clasp, but the end with the safety opposite of the Dive extension does not taper like the Doxa, so it is not a direct replacement.

    Nice! I knew about the Sharkhunter/Robert Redford connection, but didn't know about this Sharky reference. I will have to look into that.

    The pip in the lume shot isn't black, like I would expect to see in a regular plastic pip. It's a faint yellow, AFAICS.

    The Orange pip on the bezel is lumed on the 50th edition. Hodinkee said the "Black Lung" didn't have a lumed bezel. So either they got a prototype, or are mistaken. Hopefully, it has the same bezel as the 50th.

    Hey there, I wrote the Fratello article. I'll see what else I can find out. The watch in "my" article was what I received but it was "hot off the press" as a prototype.

    Cheers,
    Mike
