This is such an underrated dive watch it is truly unbelievable it does not get more respect from the dive watch community.
I have read lots of comments about how people don’t like the crosshairs line so common on Damasko watches.
Well here is a diagram of an actual Sub periscope:

it doesn’t get more appropriate as a dial design element.... not to mention the cool as hell submarine engraved between the lugs.
Let’ also consider the tech Damasko has put into this watch with the crown system, Viton gaskets, and submarine steel.
Rolex would charge $10k minimum for a watch with this much tech.
You are underestimating...more like $15K...
But you are correct--they nailed the design elements on this watch...until they went to the DSub2 and DSub3. Why on earth would they, in today's market, ADD a mm to the case size, then take away the crosshairs, then move, and angle, the date window...ah well, they are still amazing watches, but think damasko missed something there on the design elements; hopefully they will go back to the DSub1 design, if and when they come out with a DSub4.
