Thread: Sharkhunter question

  1. #1

    Sharkhunter question

    Hey Cats,

    Got into a debate about how to pronounce the name of my watch.

    If I could get an assist please.

    Is it pronounced: Dox (ox) ah
    Or is it: Dough ah

    Would like to put this one to rest.

    Of course the watch in question:


    Peace,
    Preston

    Interesting, I've always said Doxa (ox) but I'm no expert and I've never heard anybody pronounce it in RL.

    Watchmakers and collectors around here pronounce it Dox-ah.

    I agree with that. I always have said it like it's spelled.

    Presumably your alternative pronunciation would make Rolex: ............. Roleigh ?
