And congratulations on your new SharkHuner.
And congratulations on your new SharkHuner.
JM, great pics as always (no surprise there). Congrats on the Sharkie, thinking of one for myself soon (undecided if PVD or not). Bought a 750T Professional last month and could not be happier.
Looking forward to the review.
A question on the regulator set up, is that a vintage single stage you are using? Only other thing (modern) I could imagine is a re-breather, and I don't think those usually go to those depths (?).
Thanks for posting!
Can dreams be filled by a monitary object?
Some may say no and they would be correct but at least one of my dreams was fullfilled by my New Doxa SeaRambler!!
Without getting into details or specifics of my particular problem I had as that may not be allowed here I have to say Doxa did the right thing. After contacting Doxa which took a couple of attemps and explaining my problem a couple of times and being firm a resolution was made without to much prodding on my part.
Doxa took care of everything free of charge to me and within three weeks from sending my watch I got it back. My concern was addressed and my problem fixed.
I had collected many $100-300 watches over the years and one slightly more expensive watch. I had always wanted a DOXA but never felt it was in reach because of the cost. I sold almost my entire watch collection to get my Doxa. I took watches which to me were not good for one reason or another and basically sold them and raised the funds I needed to get my Doxa. It took me a while and there was a time when I did not know if my dream would come to fruition. Eventually I made my desire a reality and have the Searambler #142 which now lies on my wrist.
It is a very satisfying(spelling) feeling to have succeeded at my goal and then to have a watch that I love every part of, which is flawless in design and execution.
So I am now even more elated to know that not only did I make the right choice to give up so many watches to have one great watch but I also know the company stands behind the product. They service the product in a timely manner. They complete their service with perfect accuracy.
This is my first Doxa and although a considerable expense on my salary not out of reach. When looking at the various fine watches out there actually an exceptional value. So it may take time for me to save up the funds to buy another, Doxa has made a customer for life. As a watch fanatic I will get another Doxa, now the question is which one?????

welcome to the family. Health to enjoy your new Doxa. Great ending to what could have been a very trying time for you.
great pics! was that pool specifically made for dive training?
Hi T Bone , long time since we haven't discussed :)Originally Posted by T Bone
I use two different regulators , a classic two stage Aqualung Legend , but also this Aqualung Mistral : this is NOT a vintage regulator BUT the only double hose regulator available on the market right now , its main advantage is having the bubble on the back and of course it also gives this "vintage" look ;) : I love it
here is a picture of the "new mistral" close to its ancestor the classic mistral (the one on this pic is a 1964 model)
the old mistral was a single stage regulator : a fantastic piece , very simple and rugged , the new mistral is a modern two stages regulator with all you can expect from a modern one (hi pressure and mid pressure output , compatible with octopus, BC and pressuremeter ...)
and before you ask the question YES I also dive with the old one :) ... this old mistral you see on pic was bought by my father and I have done my very fist dive in the sea in 1973 with it
tech note : you can dive deep with modern rebrether , but of course thoses do not use pure oxygen but Nitrox (pure oxygen dive have a limit of about 14 meters) ... I plan to do a rebrether course in the future ;)
yes thoses two pools (the one in Bruxels and in Paris) are specially made for scuba diving training they are reserved to trained divers and free diving is forbidenOriginally Posted by siggy
Now that's what I call a training dive!!! Wow!
I was preatty sure you would like itOriginally Posted by BruceS
have you in the US thoses diving pools ? , IMO that is an excellent diving "simulator" and very different than diving in a regular swimming pool where you do not have the effects of pressure
the diving pool is ideal for a training of the BC or the emergency procedures
I am training here with my wife :
Cool shots JM,
Congrats on the Sharkhunter
