    Show us your Damasko

    DSub1

    Submarine steel, 300m water resistance, 42mm (43mm inc bezel), 12.9mm thickness and around 98g. All in, a superb watch.

    Looks a Damasko

    Only the DA43 remains though i'd like another Ds30

    I just have this one now & it's the 2nd time I've owned it.



    DC67 number 28

    The first time I owned this watch, I got it directly from Damasko. I'd placed an order before they'd recommenced production many months before & out of the blue got a "your watch is ready for delivery" email. It's one of the very first DC67's they made on recommencement of manufacture.

    I used to have these



    This trio took some effort to assemble. It was done whilst Damasko were not making watches - DA37 number 37, DC57 number 88 & DC67 number 15

    I also had these that I bought on the way to collecting the full lume trio





    Love their watches & if anyone wants to sell a DA38 or DC80 Green, I'm your man.
    Andy

    Wanted - Damasko DA38 or DC80 Green - not the black versions. Bell & Ross BR03-92 Nightlum

    Time was I had a DA37 (Sept 2006) and a DC67, back when Eddie was a Damasko agent and they were like hen's teeth to get hold of. They were both bought privately via the forum. Then I decided I had too much white in my life, and I sold the DC67 to a forum member and bought a DA56 from Eddie (Sept 2009). I wonder if the DC67 (No. 0017) is still on the forum? The DA37 has a nice serial No. (0007) but I don't believe it was ever issued ;-) . I still have both the DA37 and the DC56.

    A DA47 has been my favoured day to day wearer for some time now, despite managing to break the habit a couple of times in an attempt to wear some others more often.

    I've also got this DC56si in black but let a DA46 go a while back. Great value watches if you like the style and they barely show a mark after years of wear.

    My most-worn watch is a Damasko - the DC57 I bought here about a year ago. It's just so legible, I love the timer functions, its robustness, its sane size, and the fact it wears well with any strap I fancy:



    A matter of months later I decided to splash-out on a bespoke DC80 - I love centre-minutes chronos, and this is the most minimalist and simplest to use that I think is possible, DC66 'hours' bezel, red pip, and red chrono hands to order, it's a big watch and heavy, with a lovely bracelet, but also easy to wear:





    If I ever scrape the cash together I'd like a DC56si - possibly another custom jobbie, this time with orange chrono hands:

    Im really wanting a DC57....this thread is not helping!!.

    It is another piece of the watch consolidation jigsaw.

    Is it still a current watch or discontinued?

    Still current.... but more expensive now due to the poundís slide against the euro. Iíd be looking for a used example as they really do age very well!

    Yes perfect! I thought they where miles apart in size but they look quite similar. Do they feel like theyíre the same size on wrist?

    I know exactly what you mean! Itís hardly noticeable to be fair. I think the lug to lug and bezel is 1mm larger on the DSub. Here it is on wrist.

    Similar question.

    How do the Da35 and 37 compare? ( think I've got the codes right)

    Considering picking up a da38 to pair with my DA43.

    Think they're different enough to warrant having both.

    Lovely trio btw

    Thanks! Iím hoping they are different enough. Will see how I get on with them both.

    I think the two you mention would make a fabulous pair.

    They do look quite a lot alike. Iíve been looking at the sub but always thought it was too big, I did already have a da46 though. I guess the sub is back on my list :).

    Thanks!

    Very pleased to add a DC56 to the collection - worn nothing else since it arrived from a forum member a few days ago:



    It had some light scratches in the AR coating - they polished-out with Polywatch, but I decided to keep going and remove all of the AR from the sapphire on the basis that I use these watches for DIY, gardening etc, and it would get scratched again, plus I find the benefit limited: I specified the DC80 to omit it, and have never regretted that. Not a difficult job - used a felt cone in the Dremel for most of it, making sure the crystal didn't get too hot, then a clean cloth by hand to finish the edges.

    Damasko should offer some other bold dial colours beyond the bright blue that they do - red, orange and yellow would all be good.

    Yes I agree, they do a grey dial version! And of course the blue and green second hand/date versions. I was tempted by the blue dial but don't like the Robby strap but I suppose I could have changed it like I did the black one mine came on.

    One of the best looking watches available right now. Let me know what you think of it once it arrives.

    Here is mine.



    Like a few examples on here this is a Frankenstein model made from various elements of the parts bin that I liked. Damasko were quite happy to build it for me for a very small premium despite referring to my initial request as 'highly irregular' - very German and did make me laugh. As many have noted, the bracelet is ridiculously over-engineered but a thing of wonder nontheless. A lovely watch that is worn often and regularly got comments of admiration.

    Interesting both yours and Andy's DC67 already had the 'new' bezel, I always thought that came in later in production. Mine (#11) have the slimmer insert.

    Increased the Damasko collection back up to 3 again with this DC66 a few weeks back. I thought it might be a touch big for me so paired it with a lovely chunky Toshi strap to properly test it and I'm pleased to say it feels great. I think it's one of the less marmite and nicest designs Damasko do and the only problem is that it might mean I wear my other watches even less than I do now!

    Used to have a DC67Si and a DA44 to go with what's now my only remaining Damasko, a DA36 Black.

    I have one of these...



    And one of these...

    Although, Iíve thought about chopping them both in for a DA46 on a bracelet, that would be my ideal watch in terms of size and bullet-proofness! I think it would almost be the catalyst to reduce to a single watch (along with a Garmin and G-shock!)

    This may be of interest: worn and wound visited Damasko and made a podcast. They also go into details of what is done in-house, quite impressive.

    Damasks is such a great brand - definitely on my list to try some day. Does anyone know if the DA series has been discontinued? Not on the Damasko or Jura websites at the moment. Be a huge shame if so since those are what I consider the classic Damasko models with the ice hardened cases.
