    Picture My 750T Mil Shark

    So About a year ago I wanted a watch. Back then I knew nothing about watches. I wanted a durable watch that didn't cost too much so I thought about getting a "issued" military watch.

    I ended up with a CWC G-10 Quartz on a nato strap. I loved it. Then I found this site. Before long I bought a seiko 5 that was an auto look alike to my G-10. I scratched the face of my G-10 in the pool one day and thanks to polywatch it survived.

    However, I was on the hunt of the ultimate pool watch in a hurry. The guys in the dive forum were amazingly helpful. I ended up getting a Black Monster, arguably the best watch for the money in the auto world of dive watches.

    At this point, I started to drool over some of the "nicer" watches. I decided that I "needed" two more watches. A dress watch on a leather strap (I think I'm going to go with a Seiko spirit, but the jury is still out). The other watch I wanted was a hard core diver.

    I wanted a tough watch. I wanted a watch with overkill in depth rating. It had to be an auto . I saw an Autozilla and thought, that is just about right, and perfectly ugly. By ugly I mean, the kind of thing that would never be worn to a fancy dinner, unapologetic in its non-conformity. I showed it to my wife. She told me that it was perfect for me, and that I should buy it. The price never even made her blink. There was no way I could spend that kind of money. I am just too tight.

    Every few weeks I would cruise the DOXA sight and dream. Too many Dirk Pitt novels had me hooked. Then I saw the 750T Sharkhunter, Military ed. It could never masquerade as a suit watch, it was good for 750 m, and it was a DOXA. This was the 30th of June. One more day and the watch would jump in price by $500.

    I bought it. you and see the "crazy watch guy opening box" pictures below. You might notice the Black monster on the side in some of the pictures.

    Oh, and one more thing. I have the best wife in the world.

    I like your series of photos....really tells the story. With all the Mil-shark talk showing up here recently, it's definitely made up my mind as to which DOXA is next on my list.

    Great choice on the Mil-shark!

    I can't enlarge the photos to make them bigger... Are they available in the 640x482 size? Always love looking at photos of other Mil-sharkies.

    Thanks folks, I am going to play around with posting pictures a bit. I obviously am not an adept of the inner circle as mine won't get big!

    Don't worry about it. I've been here a while and I still have trouble linking to some photo hosting sites.

    Congrats on the Mil Shark! That is one sweet score you've made; oh, and the watch is pretty cool too!
