    Lum-tec VS Damasko

    Hey guys! I was very much tempted to pull the trigger on Damasko DC56 when I found out that Lum-tec has released a limited edition super combat B3.
    So now I am in a dilemma which one to get. Hope to hear more advice/opinions that will help to reach a decision!

    I think the Damasko is the better watch and the better looking watch. Damasko is an easy choice for me.

    Both cool and I like the display back, but I think I find the Damasko more compelling due to the hardened case etc.

    Re: Lum-tec VS Damasko

    I don't like many Lum Tecs, but that's a pretty cool looking watch.

    But these two are hugely different sizes. The Lum-Tec is a 45mm case, 55mm L2L, and only 12mm thick.

    The DC5X series are 40mm cases, with a compact 47mm L2L span and ~14mm thick.

    Depending on your wrist size, one or the other will fit you better.

    The Damasko case is loads more durable, not to mention the anti-magnetic rating and cool crown / pusher tech the Damasko has.

    But these two are apples / oranges size-wise, not to mention one is a chronograph and one isn't. What are you really after?

    I prefer the Damasko, but you need to be aware that the ice-hardened case can be permanently magnetized, and while the soft iron core prevents the movement in the Damasko from being affected, it can magnetize your other mechanical watches nearby.

    Wow, never knew that about the ice-hardened case. Anybody had a chance to test this and see at what distance this would affect other watches? Once I decide to get a Damasko, I may need to keep it in a separate watch box away from my main box.

    If you see both in person, the Damasko, no contest.

    Re: Lum-tec VS Damasko

    I would also like to know more about this. Is it a real danger to your other watches?

    Re: Lum-tec VS Damasko

    Both good quality seems to me, based on looks the Lum-Tec, don't much care for the Damasko aesthetic of that model. Selfishly wish the Lum-Tec was smaller . . .
