    Smile How come.....

    the models in the doxa line up with name's ie 750T, 1000T represent in terms of what there water resistance is in metres corosponds to the model name, then the 5000T is what it is in feet, why the change from m to ft

    Just wanting to find out as much as i can before taking the leap.

    Also did anyone ever purchase a doxa without ever seeing one in the flesh? as that is the position i am in.

    also is the hacking second movement on a doxa exactly what it sounds like? it hacks instead of sweeps.

    Re: How come.....

    That's a good question which I believe has never been asked on the forum...although I could be wrong. I would say though that it is just pure asthetics. 5000 looks better than 1525. Just my guess.

    I have purchased three Doxa's direct without having seen or held one previously. Good luck with your decision.

    No, it sweeps.

    As I recall, Doxa said the 5000T was made with the imperial system since that was their biggest market of sales. Just something a little different IMHO

    A "hacking" second-hand means that it will stop when the crown is pulled all the way out to set the time. This allows the user to set the time more precisely.
    Best Regards,

    The majority of us did. Few have been disappointed.

    Yup i think most were bought without being seen in the flesh, they are definitely not so common.

    But if you tell us where you are there may be someone nearby who you can meet for a look.

    Re: How come.....

    I bought my 750T and i only saw pictuers. I was not unhappy we it showed up......I would say I was really happy.

    My brother in-law just bought his first Doxa the 800ti unseen and he was very happy with it.
