Being i Seiko guy, I've secretly been drooling on a Doxa for quite a while. However I couldn't really justify the price, until I noticed the summer sale a couple of weeks ago.. (yeah I know, I'm probably the last one to notice the sale)
I jumped the gun and ordered a 1000t caribbean and it arrived on Friday! :D The watch was everything I expected it to been, and then some! I absolutely love it, and I predict it won't leave my wrist for quite a while.
However I have a couple of questions:
I just read the user manual (CD) and there it said the watch is waterproof to 750 meters? I thought the 1000t was waterproof to 1000 meters? If so, the CD-rom is erroneous..
Another thing I noticed is that it said you shouldn't shake the watch to get it started (if stopped) because that can ruin the movement? Whats the difference between a hack/handwind movement and one that doesn't hack/handwind? The latter you have to shake to get started, so why is it so dangerous to do the same to a movement which handwinds? Doesn't make sense to me, but what do I know. Please explain anyone :)
With that said, I'm really satisfied with the watch, and unfortunately I don't have any pictures as I don't have a camera at the moment.
Oh, for those curious, my watch is gaining approx. 20 seconds a day, is that normal?
