Well, summer is almost over and I'm feeling the urge to take the plunge before the sale ends. Currently I only have 2 Doxas in the stable -- my Sharky GMT and a Deco. I have given this a lot of thought, probably too much. At this point, I just can't make up my mind so I thought I'd seek some forum input.
Here are the issues I'm having --
1. I'm not sold on the 5000T, as the dial just doesn't look right to me and I love the rice-bead bracelet. That said, I can't say the 5000 is totally out, either. Primarily I'm looking at 1000T's, though, although like many others, I am a little concerned about the size. In my mind, my 750 GMT is the perfect size for my 7 1/4" wrist.
2. My first choice was the Pro, as I have no Doxa orange (except for the trim on my GMT). However, it's sold out and the Project Aware is a non-starter for me as logos rub me the wrong way. So which color? Almost all of my watches are black-dialed, as it seems to go with everything.
3. I am only looking for ONE right now. I know many helpful sorts will say "just get one of each," but it's not in the cards at the moment.
Wrist shots would be very helpful, but not the typical ones I see here. It doesn't do me much good to see a close-up of the watch on a wrist, where you can't see the hand and arm. I'd like to take in the whole look. Anyone have good shots like that? Also, I don't think I've ever seen a wrist shot of the 1000T Carib, except for the one Jason's wife wears. My wrist is, um, decidedly more masculine than hers.
This is a bit of a quandry for me. It seems like every time I have my mind made up, I start to lean in another direction and the decision process starts again.
So...that's the challenge. Dazzle me with pictures by all means, but help me make up my mind!
