Review: Damasko DC 80 Chronograph

Postby koimaster » April 23rd 2018, 3:32pm

Damasko took us by surprise last year when they announced the DC 80 chronograph, a central-minute chronograph with similar functionality as the Lemania 5100. In order to achieve this feat, Damasko developed a largely in-house caliber called the C51-1 including patented features, and built off of the Valjoux 7750.

New chronograph movements are always of interest as they are few and far between, but ones with central-minutes are of special note. After the demise of the 5100 in the early 2000s, central-minute chronographs have become increasingly rare, which is a real shame considering their utility. Since then, only a handful have emerged, and they have tended to be very expensive.

My DC66 is one of the most badass watches I've ever owned. Great company.

This is a very cool watch, like the Sinn EZM1.
