My son picked up the 5000T Pro at FedEx last Saturday while I was flying back from Phoenix.
My hideously complex "Plan Orange" for minimizing spousal involvement in the delivery was scrapped due to the trip.
Fortunately, Jupiter must have been aligned with Mars because this magnificent timepiece made it into my house and onto my wrist without a hitch.
No threatened divorce. Not even a customs delay. Yes, there is a Santa Claus.
Everything Dr. Pete said about this watch is true. The beautiful face is enhanced by the domed crystal. Tremendous visual impact.
The thicker case is awsome, as is the bracelet. The 2892 seems very accurate. In total, an elegant package.
My thanks to Doxa for an extraordinarily beautiful watch.
BTW, the bracelet tool was a real time saver and scratch preventer. Double head screws in a bracelet can be a major PITA. The tool makes adjustment quite simple - but not foolproof.
After the DS GMT purchase, I knew there had to be an orange Doxa in my future. The time between seeing the first photos of the 5000T and my pre-order was a matter of minutes. The actual watch is far sweeter than the pictures ever showed.
Am I delighted, or what?
Happy holidays to each of you!
