Over the past 24 years, Damasko has pushed the durability of the mechanical watch to its absolute limit, through in-house developed, patented technologies. The DC 56 Si exemplifies this by passing extensive Airbus endurance testing, earning status as the official watch of German Eurofighter pilots.
The DC 56 Si is Damasko’s pure expression of the modern pilot’s chronograph, with an enhanced movement and silicon hairspring. The dial stays true to the core principles of the pilot’s watch, featuring easy to read, bold numerals and markers, as well as large hands and their signature offset date. The chronograph functions add a layer of technical complexity but not distraction, as they’ve been well-incorporated into the design. At 40mm it’s a comfortable all-day size as well. In true form, the DC 56 Si’s modest appearance belies the bounty of tech it holds, including an ice-hardened steel case (the black version also features their DAMEST® coating), magnetic field protection and Damasko’s patented crown and gasket systems.

Powering the DC 56 Si is a modified and enhanced ETA/Valjoux 7750 caliber. The 7750 features 25-jewels, hand-winding, offset day/date chronograph, a frequency of 28,800 bph and hacking seconds (second-hand stops when the crown is pulled out). Additionally, Damasko adds an in-house rotor w/ ceramic bearing, EPS® Silicon escapement and reinforced barrel for increased, 52hr power reserve.
