I like it over the standard Doxa diver. The shark is cool on the dial too but they could lose the Carimica lettering. I would buy one in a heartbeat for the right price and it would be the first Doxa I have even considered buying. Very cool!

there is some sort of disconnect between what we've known as Doxa and the asian market Doxa. i'm still waiting for someone to explain the difference....

Yes, it is the same people.



Take a look here.....youll notice the watch at the top is the traditional doxa diver we all know.

Apparently, the Doxa in Asia is a way for Doxa to produce cheaper knock off type watches, that they sell in China, and certain other parts of the world.

New info. Click here to read - DOXA Shark Ceramica XL (forbidden diver)

These watches won't ever be available to anyone outside mainland China . . .

Regardless of where it is or is not available, or who is making it - commenting just on the design/look of the watch - It is to large for my current tastes but that being said I do not hate the design or look of the watch, especially the top one with the orange accents/markers.

This may not be the most original design, but I LIKE it. Although I will never own one, the size is perfect for me, and I actually like it better than the traditional Doxa case. The color combo with the orange is great, but I could do without the Ceramicaandlimited edition lettering. I think the design kinda screams TagAquaracer, but that isn't a bad thing, many watches share similar qualities and it isn't a copy, just similar. IMO, for what its worth. If it were readily available, it would definitely be on my radar as a "want to own", but seeing as I don't have any chinese export contacts, I guess it is a moot point.

You plan on diving down deeper? Years ago, most dive watches were only 200m water resistance, it was very rare to see anything more...Now everybody is looking for a 1000m diver.

Not my cup of tea, too large and too much going on, like a soupped up Invicta at tihs point.. well that's what I feel like when looking at it, first thing that comes to my mind...
To me Doxa should stick to the classic subs..
