The Damasko DSub1 is the first dive watch introduced by Damasko and made exclusive to Gnomon Watches. Like other Damasko collection, the DSub1 is made in-house by Damasko. The DSub1 is a watch of many first which we will discuss more in depth. The DSub1 will only be produced in limited quantity.
The DSub1's watch case is made in-house by Damasko and is the first watch to be using what Damasko calls “Deutscher U-Boat-Stahl” which translates to be Germany Submarine Steel. The U-Boat steel is a high strength alloy steel and used extensively in the construction of German submarines and navy ships. The U-Boat steel also offers significant corrosion resistance compared to 316L stainless steel. The combination of the steel's properties make this the perfect material for a dive watch. And for those who are asking, YES, the bezel, caseback and crown are also machined from the same U-Boat steel.
Another first is the unidirectional dive bezel that uses 3 ceramic ball bearings ratcheting system, ensures that the bezel clicks into the 60 clicks positively with 0 play left or right. This is probably one of the best dive watch bezel system available in the market.
