    Orange minute hand for 1000T Sharkie???

    OK guys, here's one for all the thinkers and innovators. I really like the look of the SUB 750T Sharkhunter. I think the black face with the orange minute hand and the orange numbering on the bezel is sharp. But, the SUB 1000T just fits and wears better for me. I don't think it looks bad with the white minute hand, Ijust think it would look better with the orange.

    Any ideas for getting an orange minute hand for a SUB 1000T Sharkie? I've considered sending it off to one of the usual suspects in customizing and having them strip, paint, and relume the originalahnd. Any other ideas? Am I losing it?

    I'm in the same boat with my 750T searambler. I really dislike flat crystals. I figure I'll wait till it's due for it's 5 year service in 2012 or so and have Jack at IWW swap it out for a sapphire domed crystal. My point is, unless you're an instant gratification type of person, what's the rush? This way you have some time to think about whether you really want to blow the pesos on the mod or spend them on a new watch. I figure I have until 2012 to decide whether the domed crystal is something I just can't live without. Besides Doxa may just produce an optional orange handed 1000T Sharkie in the future. Or in my case a domed crystal searambler.

    Maybe they're saving the orange hand for the COSC versions? I went back and found Pete's post showing prototypes from Basel. Here's the link...

    Here's one of Pete's "spy shots" showing the COSC 1000T Sharkhunter w/ an orange hand. I'm hoping they go through with this, so all parties can be happy.

    The Sharkie 1000 with orange hand looks great. Hope it comes out that way. It would allow members a choice of white or orange minute hand. Doxa has really amp'd up their game.

    That would be too bad if they saved it only for the COSC versions when we've all been asking for it, especially on a 1000T Caribbean and/or Searambler.

    Now the Caribbean is out with all white and loses the look - a big disappointment and I've got to believe that the sales will not be there. But I couldn't go with the COSC at that price point just to get the orange hand.
