Mike, is that including the numbers mentioned earlier, or on top of the earlier numbers?

200 ETA 2836-2 and 150 Valjoux 7750. He's busy mounting them. So: There's hope guys.
good news mike. doing the math, my odds look bad still. there are 200 2836 movements to be distributed around the world to fill the DA models. i'll bet most end up in germany. at least that is 100 more then expected. thanks for the update. you must speak with konrad on a weekly basis. :thanks

Excuse my question as I'm pretty new to the watch world. Assuming everything else is ok and mounting is the only task to be performed, is the time scale to completion for, say, 100 units measured in terms of weeks, months, or seasons for Damasko? I suppose it can be rephrased as "how much work does mounting the movements involve?"

Simplified imho!

If you are the only one to mount them (Damasko is still in need of a watchmaker and desperately searching - see web site) and if watchmaking isn't your only business (read my report on the Damasko brand), if you do the quality control by yourself including regulation (which can't be done in a day, Konrad checks every watch by himself), if you have to check all the other orders and work it will need much more time than your question indicates. As you already said, it's not the only task to be performed. We are not talking about Sinn, Union, Limes, Archimede where a lot of people are employed. We talk about a family runned business.

I think all these time, it's the lack of watch movement that is holding the delivery from Damasko.

At least from this current delivery, there will be 350 more happy Damasko owners soon.

Maybe I have not waited for too long, as long as I can get my DA36 in pristine condition, I will be one heck of a happy man. :-!

Too bad they can't find another watchmaker. That would certainly help ease the waiting time and help them catch up with demand. I wonder if Damasko ever thought their product would explode in popularity like this and get to the point where demand would be so high for their product.

so mike, with that being said, do you think it would take a several months to get the watches out to the waiting public? or even longer? o|

I have no clue. Al I know that Konrad is very busy to answer the huge demand. In fact he doesn´t get any support by any other watchmaker. Not knowing on what list you´re on and how many other lists do exist I really can´t say. Sorry.

Mike,
I understand the issues of needing a watchmaker(s) to facilitate construction and getting shipments out the door, but ultimately it would seem that money talks, ie if you pay someone enough they would come to work for you as a watchmaker. I do not know the Damasko business model, aka how much of their revenue comes from the watch end vs. the other areas of manufacturing, my guess is very little from watches or they would be busting to find people. While I realize that this is a captive audience there does seem to be real live demand for their product, it just doesn't compute that they continue to tick away at this snail like pace, while it may not seem possible at some point the consumer will stop waiting for a product that isn't arriving. I give full credit to all you guys on their waiting list you have way more patience than I do.
Good luck to all

I agree with you completely. My patience is running very thin with damasko. It was first the no email responses and then the wait. I do not even know why they have an email account.

If a damasko is not availabe soon, I will proceed to get yet another Sinn.

Annoying to say the least! :-|
