    Damasko DA36 vs DA46? Which and why?

    Looking for input from owners - does the overall diameter of the DA46 make it look bigger? Does the dial on the DA36 look any bigger due to the lack of a timing bezel?

    I started with a similar question, tossing up between the DC66 and DC56 - and came to the conclusion that the 66 was going to be too big/busy for me.

    Now I am starting to think that maybe I dont need the chrono at all...

    DA3X vs DA4X is on my mind also. The simplicity of the DA3X appeals to me though I also hear that the damasko bezel is something else so would be a shame to miss out on that.

    Looking forward to peoples input.

    I have a DA36 on MN strap. I love it and it’s the perfect size.

    I also had a DA45 with a 1-11 bezel. It was too big for me and rarely used the bezel function.

    Size 6.75” wrist.

    I don't have a DA36, just a DA 44. so can't comment on how big the 36 looks. If you think you might use a bezel go for it. Then you have to decide do you want hour or minute markers on the bezel.

    I don't own a Damasko but personally I like the one with timing bezel.

    It's really a personal preference thing. I love the looks of all of them, but I've grown accustomed to larger watches. For me, the DA3x seems just a bit too small. But, that's just me. I have a 7.5" wrist.

    On a side note, I remember the first time I heard of a 40mm watch. I was into vintage Omega's at the time and could not imagine how anyone could wear a watch that big. I ended up buying a 40mm Fortis Flieger and have not looked back.

    I debated this when choosing a Damasko too and talked about it quite a bit with Greg at Watchmann. I went with a DA44. The bezel doesn't add much height but does add a tiny bit more width due to the bezel teeth. I don't feel like it makes it look any bigger, but I do think it makes the watch more visually interesting, and lets face it, Damaskos can use a bit of that. The bidirectional bezel is fantastic and I use mine quite often, even with it being the 1-11 version.

    It looks like they both have the same 40 mm case size? I bought a used DA46 and I am patiently waiting for it to arrive. I really wanted a white dial with orange accents, but for the price I will try this used one.

    I chose DA36 over DA46 because I personally don't want the black bezel insert to interfere with the tone of the ice-hardening steel ;)

    Yes, the DA3x and DA4x models use the same 40mmx48mmx20mm case.
