    Joining the club w/ Sub750t Mill Sharkie!

    Hi All,

    You guys have a great forum, and searching through previous threads was very informative. My first exposure to Doxa was via our friend and adventurer Dirk Pitt. I always thought it said something that Mr. Cutler, made it a point in each book to mention a watch, and what kind.

    As my interest in watches grew, and also the ability to indulge my interests, I must admit I was not sure what I thought of the Doxa "look".

    But after immersing myself here and at TZ, and educating myself, and looking at tons of pics of all kinds of watches....Doxa started to stand out as unique. Then as I looked into them more specifically, I really started to appreciate the many aspects that make Doxa.....well Doxa!

    So...I have made the plunge and have purchased a Sub750T Mill Sharkie from a WUS member who had one for sale (Thanks Ryan!!! ).

    I wont have it till Wednesday, but will be sure to post pics once I do. In the meantime, does anyone have a side-by-side of the 750T and a Sinn U1? Just curious.......I will be sure to post some myself once the watch arrives.

    Thanks for all the info here, and I am really happy to join the club!!!!

    Welcome to the Dark Side - my Military Sharkhunter ("Darkhunter") is my favourite Doxa and is tough as nails. It was also my first, and look where it got me!! LOL!
    I will be very interested in the Sinn U1 comparo - I almost pulled the trigger on one of those, but thought it was too much of the same theme! Great watch, though.

    Steven,

    A belated welcome to the forum and congrats on the new Mil Shark. I met up with a guy with 7-8 Doxa's last weekend. I asked which he considered the prize of the collection. He replied the Mil Shark. It is a stunning watch! I tried his on, it was sized perfectly for my wrist. It was REALLY tough to take off. I'm sure you'll experience the same thing. Please post pics!

    Kev.

    Wow.

    I appreciate the positive words on the watch. High praise from a discriminating group! I really had planned on stopping for the year, until my Stowa 80th Anniversary LE Marine Original arrives in February, but...well...you guys know how it is. Sometimes something just grows on you... and you look and you read (2 key mistakes), then obsess, then worry about IF you can get it, then BOOM...it's on the way and your staring out the window all day looking for the UPS/FEDEX dude, and refreshing the "out for delivery" message on the tracking site every 10 minutes.

    I know I can't wait to get it and put my grubby hands on it.

    Looking forward to posting pics and getting some feedback.

    Hi All,

    Well the watch Arrived and I am liking it very much. Comfortable, solid and very cool looking. Can't wait to get it in the water!

    Here are some pics I promised, comparing it to my Sinn U1. I like the styling on both watches. The Sinn is bigger and heavier, and is dominated by the bezel and watch face. The bezel overhangs the case by just a bit. The Doxa does not wear as big, I think mainly due to the bezel not being as big as the case. This works for the doxa, and gives it a unique look.

    I won't comment on which is better, as they are both very nice and will certainly take anything I am going to throw at them.

    I really like the rice bead bracelet, as again, it is unique and adds to the individuality of the Doxa, where the Sinn is distinguished by it's heft and clean face.

    Here are some pics:
