    On the insane bracelet the DA36 is in contention for the top dog in my collection.

    That's a weird perspective shot with your wrist in comparison to your feet.

    It makes it look like your wrist is much higher from your feet than it should be, like you are a towering giant or you have displaced legs and feet.


    Just found it kind of funny.

    I wonder how long it took to repair, and what was done?

    It took about 3 weeks for me to get the watch back. It arrived at Damasko around May 21st and I got it back halfway June.

    Shipping: The Netherlands > Germany and back. Shipping time was 1 or 2 days both ways.

    Damasko replaced the ratchet wheel and some undisclosed small parts. They do not send the original parts back to you.

    It’s been a year since I sold my DA36 before moving to “higher grounds”. I can say without a doubt that I miss it. I loved the fact that even under harsh conditions, I was unable to leave any marks on the case. The bracelet is a different story. In spite of the ravings about it, don’t expect it to be flawless. Desk diving marks will be prevalent on the bead blasted pattern just like on any other regular steel bracelet

    Why'd you end up selling the DA36? It looks like a great timepiece and I'm really enamoured by the steel technology thats being used.

    I suspected correctly!

    After 2 weeks of daily wear, and regular checks on the Timegrapher, the DA36 started showing the same problems that had stopped me wearing it in August last year - low amplitude and a change from +/- 2 seconds-per-day to -30 (and worse) seconds per day - but randomly occurring. I saw amplitudes of 290 degrees followed an hour later be only 126 degrees, with no obvious cause for the change.

    I contacted Damasko about a repair, and it's now on its way back to Barbing.

    Fingers crossed it can be fixed and returned before the Christmas holidays.

    Cheers,
