In response to my really long post about my problems getting a watch I ordered from Doxa, here was the response I received:
From: "DOXA Watches USA" <firstname.lastname@example.org>
To: Ross Hollman
Subject: Shipping confirmation for your DOXA SUB600T professional Dirk Pitt Edition
Date: Thu, 12 May 2005 09:27:55 +0200
Dear Valued Customer,
Your ordered watch will ship today.
Please note that you will receive a free orange rubber strap and a free DOXA baseball cap with your order
Thank you for your understanding and sorry for the delay.
DOXA Watches LTD
I really don’t think I’ll be wearing the hat or switching out to the rubber strap (might have been nice for them to have waived the shipping charge or paid the duty for me). At least I’m finally getting the damn watch.
