Another forum that I'm a member of has a thread regarding a single-brand three-watch collection. This was my entry:

First, the "collection" game is a "game" I play with my collection all the time. Dividing the watches into sets and subsets. It's likely why I continue buying, nothing ever leaves, and the collection just grows. Everyone one of them "belongs" and I can't break up the set. With this question having been posted, i realized a new set and it's the one I'm going to work on in the near future.

It will consist of the Damasko DA46 w/12hr bezel. I bought this one about four years ago. I've toyed with selling it but I think I have to keep it. It makes a good travel watch for me as it has a date and makes it easy to keep track of a second time zone. I have it on the Damasko DA bracelet right now.

DC86 Orange w/5-55 bezel. The DC86 uses a modern movement that operates quite like the Lemania 5100 which is a great chronograph movement in most people's eyes. It just makes sense. I will probably buy it on the bracelet to save some money and additional hassle later. Would really like the black one on a bracelet but no black manufacturer's bracelet yet.

The DSub50. Every collection has to have a diver and DSub50 is certainly worthy.

I closed with the observation that Damasko has some neat technology and I like the designs. These particular watches are not pretty or dressy watches but they serve their purpose. At least for me.

Thought this might interest some.

If I had a Demasko collection, the DC86 Black/White & DSub50 would be in it. I’m not sure on the 3rd model.

Only thing is, I think they're all capable of functioning as a diver.
Oh for sure. They all have adequate ratings. I was classifying them based on the manufacturer's description.

DC86 is enticing, particularly since EZM10 prices have officially surpassed my interest in that watch. I just wish Damasko had did a hardened titanium case like the Sinn.

Same here. I also can't find anywhere to actually see an EZM10 in person. At those prices, I feel that's kind of necessary for me. Having the DA46, I know what a DC86 will feel like. And it's less than the EZM10.

The DA46 is, in my opinion, one of the Damasko greats. It exemplifies Damasko’s design language (the characteristic crosshairs, the coloured secondhand that 'pops', and distinctive bezel-action). But the DSub50 is another work of engineering art. What a great collection!
That's what I've come to realize. Just in time, too!

I have the EZM10 as well as a dc82. The Sinn wears large yet lighter. The Sinn feels much more modern because of the integrated pushers. I can't decide which one I love more.

I also have a tutima m2 (to keep in line with German watchmakers who make toolwatches with a reworked 7750 -> 5100) and that one feels cheaper, wonky, weird. And it's sliding chrono minute hand versus the instant tick over of the Sinn and damasko.

On topic.

My ultimate 3 piece damasko set?

Dk105, as a dress watch.
DC86, as my tricompax chrono with timing bezel
DC72, as my stealth chrono that looks like a time+date only at a glance.

No divers for me. I dislike divers.

I have now a set of 3 Damasko’s that could play that role:

  • DA373 on bracelet - great daily watch. Actually looks good on a suit as well. Wore it on several business trips, won’t scratch bumping into things when traveling and looks sharp.
  • DK105 - recent addition daily watch that can be used dressed. Though to be honest I prefer my Nomos for those occasions
  • DC82 green - sporty chrono

In principle this would be sufficient buuuut… in addition I prefer to wear my Sinn U50 or Seiko Tuna for swimming.

For my upcoming holiday trip (first one since the pandemic) it is a toss-up what I will wear: DA373, U50, Tuna, MKII Paradive or Tudor GMT.

All of the watches mentioned form most of my fave watches.
