I like the colors and Soxa look. The price is cheap, but before I throw my money away, I thought I’d ask if anyone has any experience with tactical frog and is it good or bad? I’m having trouble finding reviews online, usually I’m pretty decent at finding stuff, but this eludes me. I’m only seeing stuff on Facebook and no real horror stories, I’m seeing nothing on forums though.

Watchdives is a reputable site. Never heard of the brand but I hope they are good. They look nice

Looks like the same factory to where the SteellDive and San Martin watches are made. I would sport one of those for the DOXA look at pennies on the dollar. Seiko movement. Why not!

Typical brand you see like Heimdallr, etc. It's funny the AliExpress store name they use. Not that it means anything in many cases, but three years warranty extend the tooth pulling period. Good luck if you take a shot.

This one just came out when the last AliExpress video was dropped. WOW ! Finally, I have been waiting forever for this homage to come out!
As mentioned, AliExpress does now charge tax at point of sale, the websites mentioned do not BUT it is your responsibility to pay the import tax!

add discount code "PRIMEDAY" for an additional $10 off on the WatchDives website.

No tax and free shipping.

Thanks. I was trying to talk myself out of it, but curiosity and a cheaper price got me. If I don’t like it, I can always play around with mods or gift it.

It's amusing how ten dollars either way can nudge someone. :hmm:



Well if money makes a rich man
Then I might never make the grade
I'll be a small time operator
If I just get the landlord paid
But if time is an indication

Well, I was waiting to see if there was any first hand info from anyone. Then seeing free shipping, no tax and 10 off…. I said what the heck. I’m curious about it and it isn’t much money to play with. I’m sure I’ve had worse for more.

One thing is certain .. It's priced better than this one.

Dreadful bezel action. There's too much play, worst one I've seen in a watch. Not sure if it's the entire batch or just mine but it's bad!
They all have, according to the factory. They even sent me a video "proving" this. Needles to say, wasn't amused. Well friend, just send it back! Sure, shipping cost almost half the price of the watch.

So escalated it into a dispute, made a video myself showing the horrendous play the bezel has, and asked for half the money back.

Aliexpress quickly approved and now, for the price, it's okay. Maybe try something like this as well ;)

I will say AliExpress is good that way and making things right with refund options. They notified me last night that two of the three packages are showing delivered. Normally it can be 70 to 120 days depending on the seller to make a claim. Once they get notification of delivery that gets trimmed down to fifteen days to make a claim. They are good with notifications. That was on me for not logging in to play my part and let them know everything was OK and mark those two orders as received with no issues.
