    Sorry for slandering the 5000T

    About two weeks ago I received a brand new SUB 5000T Sharkhunter and I rushed to share my first impressions here on the forum. I'm not a 2,000 post guy, but all the same I wanted to participate after spending a lot of time lurking and learning. One comment I made upon my first inspection of my new piece was that "the lume, while perhaps not brilliant, is much better than average."

    This comment got a little attention and as it turns out, deservedly so.

    Since I first got my new DOXA I have taken it in the ocean, gone deep sea fishing off Bermuda, dove off of cliffs, been swimming in Lake Huron, and put it through the ultimate stress-test: worn it to a few pubs.

    Anyhow, my point is that after some real-life time together I would like to retract my "better than average" description. That was wholly inadequate and I'd like to officially upgrade the lume rating to "exceptional." The watch has taken everything I've thrown at it and emerged on-time and still glowing early the next day.

    And...when one of the guys I went to Bermuda with (who was sporting a Cartier tank) asked me, "What is THAT?" I tried not to act too superior. haha

    Sounds like you are really enjoying the piece which is most solid. You're back on my Christmas list also

    No worries. We ALL get excited when a new watch arrives, especially a Doxa.

    First impressions are just that, so coming back with a more thorough observation makes perfect sense.

    Sounds like you have started off well, hope you have many more adventures.

    haha Thanks, Chris. The holidays just wouldn't be right without your Christmas cake being delivered to my door.

    Cheers,
