    The waiting for a watch is always painful. I'm a newbie here, but not to watches, but have been lurking for a while slowly becoming more and more entranced by the whole Doxa thing...damn they are fine watches.
    So...just ordered a 750 Sharky Miltary. Now the pain is mine again. But hopefully not for long.

    Interesting that it seems several of the latest newbies are drawn to the Mil Sharky. I think you are the third one lately to go for that one as their first Doxa

    Jason,
    It was a close thing. I initially was hooked in by seeing an orange Sub 600 on another forum, and started looking...and here I found myself. Then saw all the options. Orange is still on the list, just loved the look of the Mil Sharky so much. Believe me many hours were spent in the decision. T-Graph or GMT are on the wish list, although seeing some of those Carribeans... I do like my blue watches too!!

    Welcome Cyclopath. You've chosen well. In case you missed it, there were only 100 Milsharks made too....

    Ric, what do they mean "Awaiting payment of charges?

    I was one of those newbies who picked the Mil Sharky as their first Doxa. I've had mine for less than a month. I was taken with Doxa for the history, the uniqueness, the quality, and having read a little Cussler as a kid.

    I was looking for an unapologetically Fugly watch at the time. I wanted something to wear that was tough as nails, reliable, and wouldn't get the "hey isn't that a (insert name brand here)" from everyone I met. The classic orange just looked too damn pretty for that. So when I saw the Mil Sharky, I knew that was it. It also helped that I was cruising the Doxa site the last day of the old prices.

    I was so taken with the quality of Doxa watches, that I ordered the 1000T Pro to get my fix of orange in a slightly smaller package than my behemoth 750T. Don't get me wrong, the size of the 750T is great for what I want it for.

    Oh, and since I didn't have a dress watch and can no longer live with myself if I wear a digital with a suit (I really used to do that) I ordered the Deco as well.

    Hi guys received it today, had to pay £31 customs fee ($62)

    Anyway as much as it is a beautifual watch, as soon as i put it on my wrist i realised its just not quite suited to me,

    I have now posted it on the sales corner ready for its 3rd owner

    Cheers! Ric
