Blue is my favorite color in the spectrum, but against a black dial the contrast is too low for my old eyes.

I just ordered a LHV with 12 hour bezel and a blue minute counter. I switched to sword hands too.

My thinking is that leaving the second hand white will balance visually a bit more with the hands stowed at 12 O'clock.

I ordered from WatchMann with a 6-8 week delivery period.

I am very excited as I am left handed, and I don't like date complications because I cross the date line frequently while working. It is always a hassle to set the date. The DC80 is a purist's tool.

I changed my mind and switched to orange. 👍

Seen one in red on Facebook... looked gorgeous. Mine will be probably green on black damest, being highly influenced by the Damasko picture with aurora borealis... or the black/white panda with sword hands (customised) .

I have my doubts if it’s either possible or desirable. And isn’t the lug-to-lug more important than the diameter?

Any idea if Damasko will make a smaller (40mm) version? Is it even possible with the movement?
Doubtful there is enough demand for a smaller case to merit the cost of re-tooling.

A 7750 movement has a diameter of 30mm (Damasko modified a 7750 movement). Therefore I assume a smaller case is a physical possibility. The smallest case I have seen with a 7750 movement is the Hamilton Linwood at 38mm. Proportions make it look like a miniature hockey puck.

I think both are about equally important. Lug width can actually make a watch appear bigger too. Take the 36mm Rolex Explorer, for example. The large (for its size) 20mm lug width along with its bezel-free design makes it look like a 38-40mm watch.

Actually I think there might be sufficient demand. Look at the success of the Sinn U50. It's 40mm and selling like hotcakes.

Agreed, I’d be very interested in a slightly reduced version and the only thing holding me back from the current model is the size. And I did purchase a U-50 and love it!

I'm definitely looking at smaller watches these days, specifically sub 40mm. Damasko's design is just so legible and bold, I think it lends itself to small pieces even better than most brands.

I guess we’re all different — otherwise WUS would be boring — but I wouldn’t buy anything under 40mm. And 42mm seems reasonable for this type of watch.

But I love that yellow secondhand! It’s a suave splash of colour.

I think I will order the left handed DC80 with orange accents later this year. I waited for the DC86 for so long, but the left h anded option is unique

Too bad printing dials isn’t cheap and easy (I presume). It would be nice to have the option for LHD across the DC8x model line!
