    Cool Viva Las Vegas - Official Launch of the Project AWARE DOXA SUB!

    This was the perfect opportunity to officially unveil the Project AWARE DOXA SUB to folks outside of the DOXA community, and to say it was a hit is a bit of an understatement!

    We were pleased to unveil this watch with the help of Tiffany Leite who is the Manager for Communications and Outreach for the Project AWARE Foundation. And an advanced apology for the two "SIDEWAYS SHOTS" - I promise the photographer was not drunk! We will get these "straightened out"!






    And we got to connect with our good friend and field tester Karl Shreeves


    What was particulary interesting was meeting up with people who remembered having a DOXA as their first dive watch - and I am talking about DOZENS of people! Needless to say, there might be quite a few new Forum members in the coming weeks




    The Project AWARE SUB is our first-ever co-branded SUB to directly benefit a non-profit/charitable initiative, and the feedback from the folks in attendance was really something. And some new DOXA-HOLICs were born!



    We also got to catch up with some PADI and Project AWARE folks from Europe Jack Lavanchy (President of PADI Europe) and Thomas Sobotta (Manager of Project AWARE Europe) were on hand to lend their support.




    Thomas again



    And as always, it was great to catch up with Karl and catch up on his recent adventures -




    There are several people not pictured here who deserve an extra-special thank-you:



    Jenny Miller Garmendia - Director - Project AWARE Foundation

    Dr. Drew Richardson - President and Chief Operating Officer of PADI Worldwide

    Brian P. Cronin - Chairman and Chief Executive Officer - PADI

    Kristin Valette - Director - Marketing and Communications - PADI


    And once again - a thank you to EVERYONE at Project AWARE and PADI for making us so welcome at the event, and for their enthusiastic support of this project! :thanks

    Looks like you guys are having fun.

    One question....has it been determined yet, how($$) the Project Aware DOXA benefits the cause?

    Hi -

    We actually answered this one before - but for those who missed it - DOXA is donating 9% of every sale to Project AWARE. 9 being the magic number in recognition of 1992 being a pivotal year for Project AWARE and also the reason for the limited release of 92 pieces.

    We are also going to have an auction of two unique Project AWARE SUBs in the upcoming year with all of the proceeds again going directly to Project AWARE.

    Stay tuned for deatails on that one!
