    Re: I know its personal BUT.....

    This won't help you much, but . . .

    I had both the 5000T Sharkie and Carib. I bought them during the first month that each first came out. I ended up selling the Carib first because black is just more versatile. The 5000T Sharkie is dressy enough that I wore it with a suit . . . a lot. I just couldn't see myself wearing the Carib to court or the office every day.



    The day that I packed my Carib for shipping to its new owner, my wife asked, "What did you sell?" When I told her that I had decided to sell the Carib and keep the Sharkie, she exclaimed, "What!!!??? You sold the wrong one." [She was, as always, too gracious to say "You idiot!" aloud ] She thought the Carib was beautiful and the Sharkie was too conservative. Go figure.

    The siblings, on the day that the Carib arrived . . . before they were so tragically separated:


    If I had to do it over again, I would keep the Carib. I own enough black watches already, including a 1000T Sharkie. If however, I had no other watches in my collection and had to choose between owning either a 5000T Sharkie or 5000T Carib as my "one watch for all occasions," it would be the ever-versatile Sharkie.

    Another shot of that beautiful Carib dial, just for fun:

    I like both of them a lot. If I had to make a choice though, I'd keep the Caribbean. I like watches with a little twist, especially if I have other options. I think the blue would look great with a tie with some blue in it for example. Also, why not wear something that sets you apart from the crowd? Then again, I wore my new DS GMT with a suit today. :)

    It really does look completely different depending on the light.
