    Which one to keep?

    Hi damasko fans!
    I haven't decided to move one of them, but if I pick up another watch, it may be one of these to go.

    So, which one? I like them both. The DB4 I purchased new, it's limited and it's number 1 of 50 which is pretty sweet. I got a custom strap for it by bcatt straps which raises the level of the watch, in my opinion.

    Next is the da46 on bracelet. Serviced last summer and customized with red seconds hand and pip. Sweet look.

    If I had a preference I'd keep the da46, but that's just my personal taste. Only you can decide.

    I really like the DA46 too, but I'm a sucker for that awesome Damasko bracelet and bezel. I use the bezel so often that it's hard for me to go back to watches without it. I actually like the red accent more than the blue too. Anyway, neither one is a bad choice! Happy choosing.

    I almost pulled the trigger on that custom da46 when it was for sale, amazing dk look on the perfect tool watch, but have moved on since. And the le db4 does look stunning on that strap and it is also a special piece. I would suggest you hold on to both and purchase a new watch when you save the funds for it ;)
    The db4 is dressier and the da is toolier, both fit perfectly in any collection. Wear them in good health.

    Definitely keep the 46, the black on the other week scratch eventually. The bezel on the 46 is also more useful and of course the bracelet!

    If you like the same both, I would keep the limited edition: more likely could rise its value. Btw, both are great but I prefer the one with the red hand

    Re: Which one to keep?

    I've got the Sinn 103 limited edition blue and that has a rotating bezel. I tend to prefer watches that have rotating bezels. I'm not a dress watch guy and the db4 is the dressiest watch that I have. I love the bracelet although I would be lying if I didn't say that it has been a little bit hard to find the perfect fit. I love the red accent. I got rid of my Sinn UX to pick up the damasko da 46.

    I also have a Seiko turtle Blue Lagoon, but that's one of these watches that I'm a keeper I'm a flip down the line so I don't want to consider it as a main part of my collection.

    Someone has a sinn 903, which is their version of the navitimer, and the gentleman may be interested in one of my damaskos plus cash for a trade. That's an incredible looking watch.

    Personally, I would keep the DA46. I just don't think I could give up the bracelet.

    You our could try putting one away completely, like it is gone. And wear the other one for a few days. Then switch them out and wear the other one for a few days. It might give you an idea of which one you missed the most.

    Re: Which one to keep?

    I think only you can decide but the DB4 is a Timeless limited edition, not a Damasko limited edition correct? Still, being #1 of a very limited edition run of 50 is worth much consideration before pitching.

    The DA46 looks better on your wrist imho; I believe that's your keeper.

    PS-If it were me I'd pitch some other watch and keep these two.
