Other than the Pro, has Doxa released photos of the rambler or sharkhunter?

Sharkhunter for me. After switching three times (which they've graciously accommodated with no issues).

Sharkhunter looks great. I love the all white hands. I think that's the most versatile of the three.

These look great. I know I'd he unhappy with the size and tiny dial, though.

I'm probably going to sell mine unworn, if anyone here who's still thinking about getting one wants to work something out. I ordered a Pro, but that can be changed to any option. I still love the look of the watch, but I've been hit with one unexpected expense after another..

I think there is a serious misunderstanding via messaging, bro. :lol: Buy Jeff's! :whistle:

I think it might be called for, but it's not definite yet.

$1990, same as they still are. Supposedly they'll go up to $2490 if they don't sell out before they're released.

Doxa is one of the ones that tend to do pretty good on resale that is for sure.

My buyer decided to pass, so my pre-order slot is available if anyone who's thinking of ordering one would like to work something out. I'm waiting to hear from Doxa if my deposit can just be transferred to a new buyer, but I have confirmed the warranty is transferrable, so it'll be the same as buying new.

Edit: I think I'm just going to keep it, I know I'll regret it otherwise..
