    800Ti, some requested comparison and lume shots

    I did the thickness side shots as best I could as I don't ever remove bracelets unless I have to. I also did some times lume comparisons.

    But first . . .

    After a night of wearing it, I'm even more impressed. Good weighty feel without feeling like I'm wearing a training weight. I could see the time easily all night and at dawn (lume is usually exhausted by then) sans eyeglasses. The twin tubes show as one larger light source in the bleary hours, and there is no trouble distinguishing it from the hour hand.

    Looks like I've find a new travel watch so I can see a trusted time source in dark motel and guest rooms as we will be back and forth looking for a second home this year.

    Time now, to start taking photos of what I'm flipping to finish funding it . . . and flipping to fund the 800Ti Pro.

    I bought the Sharkhunter as I didn't have a SS Sharkhunter, only a PVD model. My old OCD requires me to have a Doxa with each color dial that they make, but I think the Pro is nicer looking- in some respects. I might even consider trading my 5000T Pro.

    First, is a shot of the 750 and 800 side by side:



    I added my 5000 to the pile:



    Next to another new favorite for comparison:



    And now, the lume face-off:

    The combatants:



    I charged the 5000T for thirty seconds with an LED flashlight and set them in semi-darkness. You can follow the time elapsed on the dial.









    Finally,
    I covered my photo-booth to make it as totally dark as possible.

    Amazing!!! Thanks for reading my mind-I was just wondering how thick the case side is, and it looks great! Looks like this is the Grail watch for me-finally, a Ti Doxa with thick case sides

    EDIT: Is the fish on the crown different?

    thanks for the great pics, mr. boots! disregarding the weight, is it my imagination or is the 5000T thicker than the 800Ti? does it " wear " thicker? i know that the specs say they are equal in terms of thickness...but sometimes there's no substitute in terms of actually wearing and viewing with one's own eyes.

    cheers....

    Great shots!

    It is really cool seeing those side views of the case. Much different than the 750T.

    Re: 800Ti, some requested comparison and lume shots

    5000T certainly seems thicker and the 800Ti has the nice low profile of the 750T. The 800Ti does sit closer to my wrist than does the 5000T.

    They're both absolutely great watches. In this case, beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder.

    Mr. Boots .... does the 800Ti have a flater caseback than the 5000T and that is the diff??? Just wondering because I have a hard time wearing the 5000T with long sleeve shirts.
