    Gift OH MY GOD..... you will all hate me.... its here

    Guys, I'm sure you will all want to stick pins in a little doll but the courier guy just knocked at my door and handed me the Super SUB prototype.

    Holy smackaroonie. What can I say. It is awesome. My wife's first words were "it looks very expensive"

    Big, heavy, stylish. It really is an incredible watch. Amazing presence. I'm resizing it now. The photo I saw if it months ago made it look kind of rough and unfinished. I can't believe it is the same watch. Have no fears over the metal markers and new bracelet. Most positions make the markers look dark and in keeping with the classic Doxa style. The luminous material must have been put on with a shovel, there is so much of it I guarantee this dial luminosity will show the Orange Monster standard bearer the road.

    Will there be people who won't like it? Sure. It is a big heavy watch. Very similar to the T.Graph but in fact it hugs the wrist exceptionally well. OK, OK gotta stop as I'm waiting on a Taxi to the airport. More thoughts when I hit Seattle, this evening.

    One bag of lemons please to take the smile off my face And before you ask. Sorry no pics until 10/10 then everything, comparative shots with other SUBs, Rolex, Omega etc etc.

    Rick, what can I say. Thank you just isn't enough.

    Pete

    I was skeptical but hopeful... starting to feel a bit excited now.

    It will take a beauty to win out over my 750 COSC Pro.

    I'm enjoying the slow introduction of the Sea Conqueror. Financially, the longer they push it out the better.

    Given what you know of the pricing, will the new Super Sub become the premium model while the 750 / 1000 are more entry level?

    On the one hand, cheaper means fewer arguments from my better half when I buy. On the other hand, too little premium for SuperSub doesn't bode well for the 750 / 1000 retained value.

    I could see this analogy.

    So far this does not hold true. If you look at every release of the previous subs, they increase in value once they are sold out. Have you seen what they have been selling for on Ebay lately? Just a few short months ago the Mil sharky was substantially less on the sales venues. Now, it is selling for $1600 - $1800 USD.

    The 300T Reissue more than doubled in price. (the Pro was $799 now will sell for $1800+ if BNIB)

    Only time will tell, but as the Sub gains more popularity, but the early subs will still increase over what they are selling for used right now.

    JMHO.
    Best Regards,
    Jason

    Hate is a hard word. Maybe hate you because you did not post a pic of it.
