Damasko Swiss DS30 Automatic with a 39mm Bead-Blasted Submarine Steel Case #DS30

The DS30 gives you the Damasko German quality and design in a new smaller sized 39mm case. The case is made from bead-blasted submarine steel with surface hardening, making it scratch and corrosion resistant. The thickness is just a tad under 10mm so it should slide under your shirt cuff with ease.

The knurled screw-down crown and mechanism is fully hardened and along with a screw-in case back, provides you with a 200-meter water resistance rating. A sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both sides gives you increased clarity when viewing the blue dial with white hands and markers. The hands and markers are also treated with long lasting CL1 SuperLuminova for reading the time in low light conditions. The dial is very easy to read.

    Outstanding Service Very good for the product.

    Outstanding service and quick handling and shipping. I would have given the product 5 Stars if it came in the Damasko watch box. Unfourtunately, it came in a travel pouch and hence the 4 stars. I would have liked to see a picture of the packaging in the product details. Something I recommend IW to take into consideration.

    I bought a second one!

    I like it so much that I bought one for my son to cheer him up after some bad news. He's an fanatical fly fisherman and this should be a good watch for that.

    Just what I was looking for!

    Posted by digger on Mar 16th 2020

    The watch itself was just what I was looking for! I really like the clarity of the dial; that along with the hand shapes and lengths make it easy to get a precise time. I have a slender wrist, 6.5", and was concerned it would look too big given the narrow bezel, but the long radial lines for the hours and minutes tend to draw it in and make it look smaller than it is. A thickness of less than 10cm also helps in that regard. As far as the dial and markings go, I like that the date window does not interupt the symmetry. I do have two little niggly things. One, the lume looks good, but I would like it brighter. Second, I really like the look of the band with the blue back and edges, but it is very stiff and have to wear it a little tighter than I would like to keep the watch from rotating around my wrist. I'm hoping it will soften up some over time. Despite those two minor things I'm glad to have the watch and like having it on my wrist. Now... I'm looking at the DSUB2...

    Damasks DS 30 blue dial

    Posted by Harry Weiss on Jan 19th 2020

    I happened to be looking at Mark’s promotional ad for this watch when my wife came into my office and saw the picture on my computer screen.She immediately commented on how much she liked it. As she has no interest in my watch obsession and has never commented on any of my watches except to say “it looks like all your other watches’, I knew I had to have this one. I was initially concerned that the diameter would look to small but it is actually a great size for me and the beautiful dial and generously sized hands and markers give it a lot of presence. I also really like the Hirsch performance strap that matches it perfectly.It appears to be accurate to within a couple of seconds a day. Great light weight and comfortable.My first Damasko and now I am looking forward to getting another one in the near future.
