Yeah bezel is about it. Otherwise it looks like a silly mod.

None of the U series owns 40mm case except U200 which is too small. If they can make this one for EZM 3 size it would be more appealing.

You know what would be more appealing than this? A 40mm teg case u212 copy.

I think because damasko finally offers a bracelet they think they're off the hook on design.

Imagine for a minute a watch they designed in hopes for a modern military squadron contract... The ultimate survivalist pilots watch with 200m+ WR, shark proof if you ditch over the Mediterranean, but with that modern flieger flair. Could be on to something...

Not that I'd buy one but I really like Damasko's designs and always thought they should have a go at a diver.

And this is what we get???? No thanks.

Is this the only color combo they are doing?

They almost got the white one right...the dial should have matte markers to tie in the bezel.

You're too kind. It's terrible with a side of bad CS. Clearly a compelling alternative to the market.

lol true or that other brand they have.

The white and black ones aren't too bad, but why would anyone chose those over sinn?

The DC-65 and 66 were great (admittedly not divers)

I love the orange accents on those. The Diver still sucks. Maybe it will be better in black.

Big deception to me, I was really expecting more for the First dive watch from Damasko....

I hope they will correct that for the final production model! I still optimistic ;)
