Are you a Dirk Pitt fan?

I am.  I don't know if I am necessarily looking forward to the Sahara movie, but the movie did spawn one thing that is really cool: the orange-face Doxa dive watch that Clive Cussler talks about in every Dirk Pitt book.

You can find the watch right here on the Doxa site and it is a full reproduction of the original 1966 model of the watch.  Actually, you can order the reproduction direct from Doxa and save 30% off of the projected retail price ($1,249.00 from Doxa direct plus shipping, which is actually a pretty good price for an automatic Swiss watch with a good depth rating).  Note that Doxa is doing a limited production run of only 3,000 pieces.

Actually I'm looking at my SUB750T right now, and the are a run of five thousand and price from Doxa is about $1,350. Everyone seems to notice it, but the stainless is so soft that it already got many fine scratches on the bezel and case, and I just got it last week.
