    New catch: Doxa Sharkhunter 300T

    Just arrived (after buying it from very poor pictures): a nice Doxa Sharkhunter 300T. Obviously in need of a lot of TLC and a serious bath. Case and hands will be redone, movement serviced, new plexi and perhaps a new (old) BOR bracelet. The current one is from a brand (Expando) which has been delivered on Doxas but I don't think this one was original. It has the expanding clasp though. Bezel is better than expected so all by all I'm happy! BTW: the guy I bought it from found it at a flea market so I assume he had a very nice return....

    It wouldn't have hurt him to take off the bracelet and put a little soap and a toothbrush to it. However, great watch. Who are you going to send it to? No water on the watch-head for cleaning. Little chance of it still being watertight.

    Congrats. Great find
    Best Regards,
    Jason

    Watch will be fully dismantled and be put in of those ultrasonic cleaners so no risk there. I already sent it to the watchmaker I always use (which is a local one in the Netherlands).

    Well: I assume 99,9% of normal people will have no clue it's something special. Watch idiots like us do know

    Man, I never have any sort of flea market luck. Glad it found a good home, though! Would be great to see before and after pics of the restoration.

    That is a cool bracelet. It might not be stamped DOXA on the clasp, but it looks very similar to the Expandro bracelets that came on the Aubry era DOXAs of the early 1980s, like the 600T Spirotechniques. I know it's not what was original to that specific 300T, but it might be worth holding on to.

    Congrats!

    Thanks. Interesting info. Did the 600T have a similar endlink?
