    Doxa 600T Pro is gone

    Dear Doxaholics,
    I have a big problem: I loaned my Doxa 600T Professional (#797) to another member of this forum last year, and he won't give it back. I don't know what is going on. Here is the problem: as far as I know, he's a good guy. He told me a story several months ago, explaining why he has not sent me back my 600T, but since then, he has fallen out of communication with me. He has been active on watchuseek forums, so I know that he is around, but he has not responded to my watchuseek private messages, or calls to his personal cell phone. If I call his cell phone, he immediately hangs up, and then turns off his cell phone.
    I don't want to out him. I have documentation to my statements. I have his statements, when he said that he would borrow my watch, and then send it back to me. I don't want to embarass him, but not only has he not gotten back to me, but neither has Rick Marei at Doxa, nor Ernie Romers, who I have written emails to (I was hoping that they would contact him, and pressure him). Yes, the guy who has my 600T is a big name in the world of dive watches. He is a popular, well-liked person. I don't want to ruin his reputation.
    Here's the deal: if I hear from him off-line, and get my watch back within 10 days (April 25th, 2013) I will remain silent about his identity. If I don't get my watch back in the next 10 days, I am going to go public. To make sure that I am not shut down by anybody, anywhere, I am going to post that information on my personal watch blog: In Search of the Perfect Watch (I am posting a copy of this letter at the blog). If necessary, I will PM a whole bunch of owners of Swiss watches, to let them know the details.
    I really don't want to do this. If I need to involve the FBI, I will: he is in another state, and our paychecks come from the same entity (part of my job duties is to train local cops, and FBI agents), so I feel no aversion to calling the guys in Westwood, and asking for their help.
    Honestly, after I get my watch back, I'm probably going to close my account at Watchuseek.

    Why not rat him out? Seems like he is a thief and using his 'reputation' to run rampant behind the scenes.
    Why would you send an expensive watch to somebody with out any recourse?

    This is terrible.

    I hope it gets resolved soon.

    This sucks! I really hope that there is a plausible explanation to why the person
    hasn't gotten back to you and that he (I assume it's a guy) comes to his senses
    and return the watch soon. I also hope that this incident won't cause you close
    you account here on Watchuseek, that would be sad.

    Tom, that is terrible. It is also theft. I hate to say it but it looks like reporting him is your only course of action. I've borrowed a couple of watches from Doxa and some of the forum members over the years but getting them back to them safe and sound has always been priority number one. I expect that is the same for everyone. Well maybe not everyone after reading about your plight.

    I hope this has a happy ending.

    Good luck

    Pete

    I'm so sorry this has happened to you...somehow I bet you aren't this person's first, or only victim. While I certainly hope your Doxa is returned, I'm also hoping someone has the courage to end this person's "career"....at least within the WUS community.

    I may have this seen this watch offered for sale either on eBay, here on WUS, Timezone and/or Watchnet in the last couple of months. I do not know if it is the exact one that is yours but if you search, you may find a copy of the listing/posting. You have to do what is required to retrieve this watch. Recently, someone else was had parted a Doxa Sub as a trade to a Polish man in Belgium who did not send the other watch to him and after two months, the authorities caught up with him and the watch was returned. So, you need to expose this man and proceed to the appropriate stages. There is no other way. I hope this matter is resolved in your favor.
