    My Sharkhunter has been running for 9 years non stop!

    So I bought my Sharkhunter 1000T approximately 9 years ago, maybe a few months shy of that. Always wanted a Doxa and finally did it. Well, I was a one watch guy for almost 9 years. I wear my watches 24/7 including sleeping. I wear it riding a motorcycle, kayaking, swimming in the ocean, kayaking down rivers. Skiing. You name it. Everything. I only take it off when I’m doing things that would be bad for the watch like chopping wood, mountain biking etc. I have rarely taken it off at night, and if I do it’s back on before the power runs out. Watch has never stopped since new. Runs at -5 seconds a day and have never had an issue. This thing has taken a beating. I don’t treat it bad it’s just 9 years of constant use. Only issue is the paint has come off the bezel. I want to repaint the markers at some point. Hell of a watch. I love it. Lune is still a torch.

    It will need a service soon but I am totally impressed
    Thanks Doxa. Will buy another soon.

    It's actually pretty cool to see a modern Doxa with that much "patina". It still has plenty of years of service left in it. What is your next purchase going to be?

    My next Doxa will be a Searambler. Probably a 1200T or a tgraph re issue. The two register one. Iím always confused which one that was. Was it the 40th anniversary? And Iím never sure if itís the 200Tgraph or a 600Tgraph

    Other watches will be a no date Rolex sub or Fifty Fathoms or JLC master compressor memovox. Love that Alarm

    Hopefully Doxa does another Tgraph soon. I canít find them used anywhere. And I donít want vintage. I use my watches!

    The 40th (2007) 600 T-Graph was the 2-reg, and it came in Pro, SH and SR. The 2005 was the 3-reg, which came in Pro and SH. I personally like the 2-reg best, and with SR dial. The 200 is the original. This is mine:

    That sir is the exact watch I was talking about. I think that will be my next Doxa. If I can ever find one!

    Very nice!

    Hopefully Doxa will release a 50th anniversary 200T-Graph this year.
    We are many who have our fingers crossed for that.

    Re: My Sharkhunter has been running for 9 years non stop!

    Congratulations man. I have bought my Doxa 5000T Sharkhunter somewhere in 2010, so this year it will have 9 years of almost continuous working. Indeed, it went with me in all seas, all mountains, all adventures and all the ups and downs I had. It also runs a little slow (around 5 minutes in one month or so), but I am too scared to send it to be serviced at Doxa. Or maybe I do not want to stay without it for a couple of weeks. Anyway, good job Doxa!

    And, of course, I can state that Doxa knows how to grow older with all the dings and scratches. I actually do not intend to repaint it.
