    Christmas arrives a week early............

    FedEx delivered my new Doxa SUB 5000T Seaconqueror Sharkhunter yesterday morning. 3 day delivery from Switzerland to my door! Sized it last night and it fits like a glove. I haven't had a chance to shoot any decent pics yet so here is the one from Doxa.



    All I can say is this watch is impressive! Fit and finish are remarkable. The second hand sweeps like butter. The deep flat black dial is absolutely gorgeous with the faceted hour markers. The lume is also amazing. If you are a lume kind of guy, this watch has plenty of it, we're talking Monster lume! Beautiful AR coating on the sapphire crystal. Nice heavy screwed link bracelet is very comfortable. The new ratcheting dive clasp is an absolute machined work of art.

    This watch comes to as close to perfect in my tastes as I've seen. A true high-end dive watch with modern design but still retains the vintage characteristics that Doxa is known for.

    With my hectic schedule here before the Holiday, and being out of town, I won't be able to shoot some really nice shots until next week. Check back the end of next week and I will have lots of new pics.

    Happy Holidays,

    Dave,
    Looking forward to your pictures. Take some lume shots if you can, I'm one of those lume freaksThe more the lume the better. No word on my order yet, hope it gets here soon!

    Any word on how the lume compares to the Kenzo?

    Thanks guys. I am very happy with this watch. It's going to be THE only watch I take with me to travel to Connecticut when my wife & I go to visit family for Christmas.

    I'll shoot a lot of pics when I get back. Shots from all angles, wrist shots and lume shots as well. I should have them posted by Friday next week.

    LateApex I hope you hear on your order soon. Oh yeah, this thing's lume glows like a torch!

    Hi Dave, looking forward to your excellent pics. You mention AR coated crystal. Is it on the inside or inside and outside?
