Nowadays we have so many devices/gadgets on us that, in addition to their main functions, also tell us what time it is. Gadgets like phones, tablets, and laptops are just a few examples. But there’s still something special about wearing a watch; sure you can buy a smart watch or you can opt for the traditional and old-fashioned quartz/mechanical watch. These watches may not come with fancy apps, but they’ve been around for over a hundred years and it’s always nice to feel a little nostalgic.
One of our favorite watch companies is Damasko watches, a company that offers attractive watches in a variety of styles, for pretty good prices. The company was founded in 1994 and over the last two decades, the company has patented over 20 different materials for their watch cases and components. In 2010, the company also started making in-house automatic movements (Calibre A35) and the company can produce over 90% of the watch’s components in-house.
The Damasko watch company offers a wide variety of watches, ranging from dressy watches to sporty watches and watches with chronograph complications. One of our favorite watches is the Damasko DA34 Black Automatic watch.
The DA34 watch is powered by a Swiss ETA 2836-2 automatic movement, which is shock proof and anti-magnetic. The case is made out of stainless steel and measures 40mm wide and 12mm thick, attached to a black calfskin leather strap with a folding clasp. The case also comes with an AR coated sapphire crystal on the front and the back.
The dial has a very simple layout with 12 hour indices and the three standard hands with the minute and hour hands coated with white luminous material. The dial features a day and date window by the three o’clock position.
If you’re looking to buy one of these stylish watches, you can buy the DA34 watch and other Damasko watches at Page and Cooper.
