According to FedEx tracking, my brand new, first DOXA watch will be arriving sometime tomorrow.
I didn't learn about DOXA until recently: I had been looking through my old watch magazines from 2005 and I came across DOXA's ad for the Dirk Pitt 600T. The ad included a quote from one of Clive Cussler's novels and photos from the movie "Sahara." I was intrigued by the look of the watch, as well as by the books and the movie (neither of which I had heard of before). The URL given in the ad - www.doxawatches.com/sahara - returned a 404, but it did get me to the DOXA website.
According to the folks at DOXA, the only currently shipping DOXA sub that is the same size and color as the original 300T and 600T is the 1000T project AWARE DOXA sub (the COSC and Pro having both sold out). I considered getting one of the larger models, but I have a small wrist and I prefer the original look of the watch. I also wanted to keep with the orange dial and the stainless steel (non PVD) material.
I asked if there were going to be any more 1000Ts after this, or if it would be replaced with another 42.7mm watch. I was told that there would be no more watches of this exact size - that it will be replaced with a new watch that is 42.7mm, but that will be thicker than the 1000T and possibly have a helium-release valve.
So I ordered one of the few remaining AWAREs.
NOTE FROM DOXA -
Hi everyone, to be clear the upcoming Searambler on pre-order is not necessarily a replacement for the 1000T (i.e. only the Searambler version is being talked about right now and the numbers are very limited), but it is very similar of course to the 1000T, save for a thicker bracelet, slightly thicker case and HRV.
