    Vintage Sharkhunter, pics & question from newbie

    Hi members,

    My name is Christoph. I am from Vienna, Austria and collecting sports-watches is one of my big hobbies. Recently I bought my first vintage Doxa - a Sharkhunter with Aqua Lung dial.

    I would like to ask the vintage experts among you if the crown (signed "Doxa") of this model is correct and if the crown should be a screw-in-crown or not. Currently it is a non-screw-in-crown. Also I would like to know if the case-back is correct for this model.

    Hope you like the pictures,
    best regards and thanks for your help
    Christoph

    Your watch seems to be 100% correct with the correct crown and caseback. You have a very nice example there. Congrats.
    Best Regards,
    Jason

    Very rare condition. This is how a vintage Sub should look like, aged but not worn to destruction. No damages, only a few scratches. And with the original bor-band!

    Perhaps you should repaint the numbers on the bezel. Easy to do. Leave the rest as it is.

    Thanks for your info Jason and Holger

    That´s good news

    I really love that vintage look. I had a T-Graph from 2005 with orange dial before, but I sold it in order to go for a vintage one.

    The vintage Doxas are extremly cool watches, as they introduced features other (much more expensive) brands did not have - the helium escape valve of the conquistador-models (as far as I know Doxa was first to offer this) or the way to set the length of the bracelet like it is on my watch (which is btw very compareable to the new Rolex bracelet on the Deepsea-models).

    best regards
    Christoph

    That's a beautiful watch in great condition for its age. I agree with the bezel comment above...repainting the numbers would make the watch "pop." Wear in good health.
