I'm really pleased and proud to announce this one.
Earlier this year I contacted Leigh Bishop to ask him if he would write a chapter for my Diving With Legends book. Leigh is one of the top underwater photographers and he readily agreed to write something. He also put me in touch with a whole bunch of famous divers including George Bass, Joe MacInnis, Richie Kohler, John Chatterton, Martyn Farr and Carl Spencer and I'm absolutely indebted to him.
Leigh along with Carl Spencer have set up Eurotek 2008 which is running November 15 and 16th in Birmingham, England. Incidently Carl who is also writing a chapter for me is the is the only person [other than the single remaining surviving Titanic survivor] to have seen both the Titanic and her rescuer the RMS Carpathia.
I thought it would be a great fit to have Doxa watches somehow represented at the show and put Rick and Leigh in touch. I'm really happy to tell you... well here's the official announcement......

The organsiers of Eurotek.08 are proud to announce that DOXA watches have linked partnership with the conference and will officially sponsor the award for 'Diver of Conference'.
