    After years of resisting... Doxa #2 is in the stable!

    I love my 750 Sharkhunter, I really really do. It has been on more dives with me than any other watch, and I will never sell it. But for years I have been haunted by orange. I linger over Pro pictures and then look at my Seiko Monster but it just isn't the same. Finally, after years of hanging around you enablers, I caved and added a gently used 1200 Pro to my stable. Today, the itch got scratched.

    Was that the one that's been hanging around on the SC for a while? I've had to stop myself from caving in and buying that one about a dozen times. Nice pickup, tough to beat an orange DOXA.

    resistance is futile: enjoy the orange.

    This listing was out there for two days when I grabbed it. It'll take a little getting used to after all the years of wearing my 750, but both sizes are very comfortable.

    Congrats. I have a 5000T Pro and have been thinking about adding a 1200T. Can you post a wrist shot of both watches and let us know your wrist size? I'd be curious to hear your opinions on the 1200T size after wearing the 750T for so long.

    Congrats! I like the pic....if you had a third Sub in there, think about the visual impact your pic would have .

    Here you go... the 750 on my 6.75" wrist:


    And my 1200...


    As for how they wear, I like them both but they are different. The 750 has a GMT bracelet on it and it wears big (as you can see) and I am definitely aware of its presence. I forget I'm wearing the 1200, its so comfortable. I've only had it three days, so it still looks small to me, even though it's the better fit for me. I'm very excited to dive with the 1200 and see it at depth.

    Well done, Doug! You bought a winner to go with your Sharkhunter! Cheers, Bill P.
