    Power of the Searambler

    Tonight I was in the grocery store, looking for some fresh asparagus to go with the red snapper I shot, spearfishing over the weekend. I had just put the asparagus in the cart, when this lady comes up to me. She says, "Do you mind if I admire your watch for a moment?" A bit taken back, I only say, "Okay". She then reaches out, touches the crystal, and says, "What is it? I've never seen anything quite like it". I tell her, "It's a DOXA Sub", and she says, "It's absolutely beautiful!" I told her about it being an old Swiss brand, a pioneer in diving watches, and she stood there silent...mesmerized by the sunburst dial. Finally she disengaged, thanked me, and then moved on. After that I stood there for a moment, smiled, and thought to myself..."Interesting, but that's the power of the Searambler".

    Great story! Thanks for sharing. How come this never happens to me when I am wearing my Searambler? Maybe it was the asparagus! It is a good looking watch!

    In my mind, its the only other non orange faced doxa I'd really like to pick up or afford to get.

    Someday soon I'll find a classy searambler.

    Love my Searambler & the size of the case. People do tend to look at it trying to figure out what type of watch it is. The Searambler is my Grail watch and no picture can show how nice the Star Burst dial looks.

    I agree and great story. I like mine so much when the opportunity came up to own another one last year (NOS!!) I jumped all over it. You know... just in case.

    Totally, stunningly beautiful. This one is definitely on my (newly formed) short list. There's one listed for sale right now on WUS someone should nab. The time's just not right for me...
