    Doxa, a long time waiting, but worth it

    Ive been a fan of Doxa ever since reading my first Dirk Pitt novel, but it has always been a long distance love affair. But after many years, I finally took the leap, with the help of MTJO. So hereís whatís new in the collection.

    The first photo looks good, the second shows the bezel that somehow popped off in my car. Back to Doxa for repairs.

    Itís been a long time, with a great deal of patience, but well worth the wait! Love these watches.

    Now itís time to look for a Numa Turquoise, any out there for sale?

    I purchased the Caribbean, and Black Lung first, then about a week later, the DWL. Still pretty excited about getting some iconic Doxas.

    Yes, Michael was pretty patient and helpful. I would definitely buy from him again.

    Beautiful watches.

    Interesting to see the modern 300 Black Lung without the bezel, with 2 holes in the case at 12 and 6 and the one-way inner ring with 4 projections. Is there any chance please of a photo of the inside of the bezel?

    I hope DOXA soon mends it for you. Any idea how the bezel came off? My understanding is that with modern DOXAs the bezel is hard to remove and DOXA use a specialised tool.

    Cheers!

    Re: Doxa, a long time waiting, but worth it

    Hi,

    Unfortunately I never took a picture of the back of the bezel, but I believe it was bare, no holes or notches. But it’s been awhile since I took those shots, so I’m not 100% positive.

    As to how it popped off, I’m not sure. I had been driving my car to several locations, so I was in and out. When I came back to my car I found the notched ring on my seat. At first I didn’t know what it was or went to. Later I glanced at my watch and thought it looked different. Then I realized what the ring went to. I looked for the bezel, but was unable to find in on the seat or floor. I retraced my driving, thinking it had fallen on the ground at one of my stops. But I was unable to locate it. I figured it was going to be an expensive repair with no bezel.

    For some reason, I looked on the floor in the backseat and there it was. I can only asssume I hooked it on the seatbelt or something else that was able to pull the bezel off.

    Not sure if this is covered under the warranty or not, but I’ll just be happy to get my BL back. The lousy part is that, I only had it for a week before I performed my bezel removing trick with no tools.
    Thankfully I haven’t figured out how to repeat the process with my other Doxa.
