    Doxa Sharkhunter 11804

    Wanted to share this early Sharky. I hadn't seen one before but found an Italian ad with a picture, so not a Franken. Same case as the Eberhard Scafograf and similar to the SM300, including the nice domed crystal. Probably from before Jacques Cousteau got involved and created the Doxa we all love today.

    Thanks for posting. I've not seen a Shark dash Hunter before, either. Nice dial, hands, bezel...and I love those lugs! Wish there were photos of the crown and back.

    I love those pre-Sub Sharkhunters, and it would be awesome if DOXA reissued a series of those.

    I agree. Doxa has a number of really cool watches from their past that they could reissue. The Sub is obviously the coolest - but if they were to put out a limited run of these (especially at a lower cost than the Sub), and I'd be really tempted.

    Definitely more inline with skindiver's watches of the 60s than the sub...it would be a interesting $1000sh reissue project for Doxa.

    Unreal. I'd love to know more about this as well – sounds like it pre-dates the Erschle-developed orange dials then?

    Most of the skindiver watches I've seen are in the 36/38mm range. This is in the 42/43mm range, similar to the SM300.

    I agree with using this as a reissue project for Doxa. They could provide another option to their current lineup, since it has such a beautiful classic dive watch case and clearly a Doxa.
