    Ordered my first Doxa!

    After debating for a few weeks the kobold arctic diver or a doxa 1000t military, the military versions were finally added to the summer sale. This morning I ordered a 5000T sharkhunter military. I'll admit, I was introduced to doxa because of season 6 of 24. I missed the 750t military, and the sale on the 5000t military sealed it for me(larger size, helium valve, improved bracelet and ratcheting extension, for less than the 1000t military's price!) I haven't received a confirmation email today though. Should I try to call tomorrow? I'm hoping to have it on my wrist for a night on the town next weekend. Wish me luck!

    Congrats. I like the AD a decent amount and have had Kobolds but none that compare to the 5000t. Better movement and one of the best bracelets out there and it will wear like a dream.


    Speaking of ratcheting clasp:

    Hopefully my order made it through, I'm going to try and call tomorrow. I've heard the 1000 versus 5000 compared to the small and big planet ocean, and I know I like the bigger planet ocean. I'm thinking I made the right decision.

    Pretty good comparison. I think you made the right call. The 5000t is a big time piece and at that price almost unbeatable.

    Re: Ordered my first Doxa!

    Good news is I received my package today, bad news is I was sent a 1000T instead of a 5000T

    Sent an email and will be calling Monday morning as well.

    I'm sorry that you received the wrong watch. I'm sure it will work out. How do you like the looks of the 1000t since you've had a chance to see one?

    I really like the crosshair type dial, and the orange hand. I just don't like the smaller size.

    Re: Ordered my first Doxa!

    Being sorted out! I love companies that reply to emails even on their off days. If the 1000T is this nice, I can't wait to see the 5000T. At first I was upset, but now I've gotten to see a 1000T first hand so it's kind of a happy accident to me. I'm 110% sure the 5000T was the right choice now. The 1000T in person has dimensions similar to my omega SMP's, but alot of that is taken up by the case design so it makes the face too small to me. I wear my gshock at work daily, and it's bigger than the 1000T. 5000T here I come!
