Founded in 1994, Damasko produces some of the toughest and most advanced tool watches in the world. 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 57 is Damasko’s pure expression of the modern pilot’s chronograph enhanced with a full-lume dial. 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 full-lume dial increases the legibility day or night. 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 57’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 57 is a modified ETA/Valjoux 7750 caliber. This Swiss-made automatic chronograph is the industry standard for automatic chronographs, celebrated for its reliability and robustness. The 7750 features 25-jewels, hand-winding, day, date, chronograph, 42-hour power reserve, a frequency of 28,800 bph and hacking seconds (the second-hand stops when the crown is pulled out). Damasko modifies the day and date with custom disks that appear offset on the dial, but with the correct horizontal layout.
Watches are hand-built and ship within 2 weeks of order.
