I am on vacation at home playing Mr. Mom. This has provided me with ample opportunity to cruise my favorite watch forum (you guess which one). I have had the good fortune to watch the burst-like announcements of Doxa's new "Seaconquerer".
I doing so I have noticed a couple of things.
First, Doxa is giving us a teasing reveal of their new product, and generating a great deal of buzz in doing so. This is a fantastic thing. I for one am a bit of a "Doxa Evangelist". All someone has to do is say "watch" and off I go.
Second, this new product is different than the rest of their line (such as my 750T Milsharkie and my 1000T Pro are different than the T-graph or the GMT). This is Doxa's first real step away from a classic release to something that will grab the larger watch world, not just us niche nuts.
Third, the Seaconquerer hasn't been fully revealed yet. I know what parts of it look like, but not the whole thing. I think that Doxa knows what they are doing, and feel they deserve my patience. I for one will hold off judgment until I have seen their full vision.
Finally, last I checked all of our beloved classics were still available in some form. The yellow of the Divingstar isn't my bag, man, but the Pro was. Maybe I won't be able to resist the Seaconquerer, maybe I will. Maybe my neighbor will buy 2...
The Seaconquerer offers something Doxa hasn't before. This will make them a more successful business, something I for one support.
Figuring things out for ourselves is one of the only true freedoms we have. But lets do so with all the facts.
Thanks for reading my ramblings.
