    I used to wear an old Tag Formula 1 midsized that my parents gave me. Ironically I started collecting dive watches after I stopped (hopefully temporarly) diving. My last dive was with a "Reef" watch that broke the next day from hard use. :) I would probably end up using my Citizen as it has a depth meter on it.
    From another former cold water wreck diver (and Citizen watch/depth gage user), take it from me. You'll thank yourself when you get back to diving. I was away for about 15 years give or take 2. But if you've got a Doxa, I'll bet you'll end up getting it wet too!

    Re: How many of you Doxa guys dive ?

    loads of dives... been frogman since 1992... over 1000 dives,
    naui, bsac and padi certified....

    once was a divemaster.... but now just dive for myself and my buddy :)

    my 750gmt sharkhunter has done about 300 dives in the tropics.

    its more than a little worn and may go back to the factory for a revamp soon.

    Doxas rock!

    happy christmas

    The jungle is the place to test one's mettle and one's skill. It is a place for personal and individual adventure. To tackle the adversary on the ground of it's own choosing and to outwit it in it's own game of woodcraft is the real joy and thrill of hunting. Always remember that hunting is not just killing animals, it is much more than killing; Killing is the least important part of it.

    I guess I can call myself a "Doxa Guy" although mine is still in the mail....I dive both for recreation and I am also a public safety diver on a dive team...(very different diving for those who know)...when mine lands I will definitely be gettin' her wet.....( the watch, the watch!) I wonder if it would be smart to change the seals and get it tested first.....it is used.

    Congrats on the new Sub. Probably wouldn't hurt to have it pressure checked, but I've never had my used ones checked before diving. So, which one did you get?

    Yup, I saw that...thanks. With it being a 600T, I'd go ahead and get it checked. If it were something newer, like a 1000T, I probably wouldn't bother. Nice score, btw, and be sure to post dive pics once you take it down.
