    Longevity of Damasko black coating? Pictures? Comments?

    I love my DA36, and after 3 years of daily wear there is not a scratch on the casing. I'm super impressed with how durable the finish is on the standard gray ice-hardened case. Can anyone speak to what the black Damasko cases looks like after 3 years of daily wear? Wondering how it stacks up. I'd love to see some photos.

    Thanks!

    Damasko black hasn't been around three years. But I haven't heard of anyone disappointed with the durability of it. It's harder than Damasko's regular ice-hardened cases.

    I have my DA36 black since October '11, I am wearing it everyday in different conditions and there is not a single scratch on the case yet , very durable coating in comparison to Sinn 656 S, which I used before and threre was plenty of w&t, especially around the crown.

    Neither of my black Damasko's have any blemishes whatsoever. I cannot say the same for my tegimented Sinns.

    For those of you who have owned a Damasko with a bezel how does the bezel and insert hold up? I'm assuming the insert isn't hardened?

    My DC67Si Black says on the back that Bezel Insert is 60 Rockwell/PVD 3300 Vickers. Guess that's hardened alright.

    My DA46 Black is still perfect after 15 months of every day wear.
