DK37 with orange second hand for me!I'd be very happy with a DK37 Black, so patiently waiting until Spring
I doubt this will happen (and don't know if possible due to the movement), but a slightly smaller DC80/82 would be great. I don't mind the 42mm diameter so much, but would prefer a 20mm lug width.
That's possibly the best info we've had in ages!Today I phoned with Damasko to ask them, if they could possibly build me a DA37 from old stocks. As I expected the answer was no.
Then I asked them about their upcoming models and - also as expected - they wouldn't disclose concrete details, but one info I got was, that they will show their new releases (or some of them, whatever) in May.
And the most interesting to me was that they plan to bring some of their classic models back with the new movement.
(Knowing that they didn't like to go into detail, I didn't ask if they meant 'models' or 'designs' and if those came ice-hardened or in submarine steel.)
I remember the dk200/1, always admired damasko making their own movement though never quite understood why they didn't go with a traveller gmt as opposed to the independant gmt hand. Also wasn't the biggest fan of the genta influenced design as personal I just really like the smooth bezel DA series. Dial was cool though I my opinion, and really liked the idea of the smaller 24 index.Wasn‘t a limited run, valid for both, DK 200, DK 201. For what you got, in-house movement (A 35-2) with silicon spring and anchor, weight balance wheel, ice-hardened case the price was adequate. However, the demand was low so at a given point Damasko decided to stop production. Every time I meet Uli Kriescher, a Damasko dealer and master watchmaker, I'm sorry I didn't buy the DK 200. Uli is wearing his on a red leather strap, an eye-catcher.
I hope I am not being hopelessly hopeful as well... as much as I want a damasko (preferably something like a da36 with an inhouse calibre), at some point I'll have to scratch the German made/toughened case/etc watch itch with something ....I have to think there will be some more new models upcoming?? Or am I being hopelessly hopeful??
The first post from Damasko says "In spring 2022 you can expect new models and novelties of our existing watch models again". The "new models" part is why I'm hopeful.
Haha, and dekla seems to be about to add a date to their turbulenz model too!Dekla and Sinn are calling.
Personally. I like the idea of damasko doing an inhouse movement and would pay for it.Well in theory they could offer a sellita variant at a lower price point next to the inhouse one.
Many people seem to balk at the $400-500 or so extra for the inhouse movement
