It's a good size, it has got Roman numerals and the structure on the dial is nice:

So why have I only worn it three times since I bought it 2 years ago? Maybe I should find a nice leather strap...
I like the look of that; would probably look better still without a date window. What size is it?

Have not worn this for a while. Tried to get my wife to wear it last week on a honey brown suede strap, told her it was from her birth year, she wore it for a few hours and then decided it was too big for her.

It's 36mm, but it wears a bit larger. Actually I don't mind the date window, as it blends in rather nicely.

Ah, and now I remember why I never wore it: the bracelet sometimes feels too lose (watch sliding down the wrist and crown digging into hand :problem:) and sometimes too tight...

No one guessed - I got a custom shell cordovan leather zulu made for my Damasko. It was stuck with the postal service due to snow in Austria for several weeks but made it through finally. I think the Damasko wears well on leather nato types and the cordovan is like butter. I even got my initials punched on the back :)

Damasko is still fully scratchfree, I've even tried deliberately scratching with the springbar tool now. :problem:
