    Need Advice - 1000T sharkhunter or 1200T sharkhunter

    Hi all:

    I cannot seem to decide between the 1000t and 1200t sharkhunter. Has anyone else had this dilemma and if so, how did you resolve it?

    Other than the depth and helium valve release, what differences are there?

    Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks,
    PhillyJeff

    the 1200 has got a thicker bracelet , same style but thicker links and i believe the 1000 has got micro indices (between the second markers) on the dial

    The case is a bit thicker on the 1200T as viewed from the side but overall height of the watches is about the same.
    The bracelet is a little thicker but it is almost unnoticeable. The 1000T came on a thicker bracelet (thicker than the original bracelets).
    If you search the forum a bit, there are a few similar discussions and maybe even some side by side pics.
    Good luck with your decision. I own both models and they are both great watches.

    From your hands-on experience, which wears bigger?

    I say go for the 1200t. I love the thicker bracelet and it feels more snug on the wrist. Can`t really loose either way though, both are sweet watches!



















    Sorry for the picture overload

    I guess RAMBAM's post says it all.
    Great comparison pics!!
    As you can see the GMT bracelet on the 1200T is a bit thicker but really not noticeable in the flesh.
    I really feel no difference between the two. The only difference is in the visual appearance. When you glance down at the watches the 1200T does appear a bit thicker overall. But really, I don't feel the difference. Both feel substantial on the wrist.
    Probably the more important point is that the overall size is good for you.
    I have a 6 1/2' wrist and the size is perfect. If you have 8" wrists, you may find the watch too small anyway. I don't know what size watch you normally wear. Some have purchased the 1200T (and 1000T) and found them too small.
    I, on the other hand, have found the 750 size case a bit too large.

    They are almost identical. The 1200 would be my choice though for sure as it appear slightly thicker. It isn't though, it's just the way they milled the case makes it seem slightly thicker.
