    C'est arrive'

    Received my 750T Mil Sharkie today from Brian and it was even nicer than I expected. Couple of comments: the PVD is satin finish not flat as on the Fortis- not sure which I prefer; the case back and inside of the clasp are plain stainless not PVD. But it seems bigger than my 600T and while it is more understated, it still stands out with the orange hands and outer bezel. Overall a rather spectacular watch.

    paul Sorry for the poor photo!

    NB: DOXA what was the reasoning for the lack of PVD on the caseback and inside the clasp? You do not see it but it bugs me a bit knowing it is there.

    Congrats on the Mil-Shark!

    I agree the Doxa PVD is more glossy than most. Some like it, some don't.

    From what I've heard, the first points of wear for PVD are the clasp and caseback. Perhaps this has something to do with the Doxa design.

    Overall, I'm a huge fan of the 750 series. A PVD 750 would be dreamy.

    Enjoy!

    Welcome to club Milshark! Seating for 100 :oops:, make that 125!

    Hopefully, Doxa will expand the club further in the future and make even more PVD watches. They certainly are good at it!
    Regards, T Bone.

    Yes as long as they ONLY make 125 of these 750T Mil Sharkies. Any others should be different and not a part of the limited edition.

    But I still wish they would have done the case back and inside of the clasp.

    Thinking I might try one of Howards black with the orange stripe Zulu straps. Might look good.

    If I could cough up the jing, I would ask Shane to give me something wild that would bring out the orange and white on the dial.

    So many thing to get for next year. And I still want the Baume ey Mercier Capeland XXL.

    oh well, the Sharki looks good. Only watch I have that coulf=d get me to sell my DOXA600T.
