    it depends on which model you are looking at. most of damasko models looks similar in terms of design other than then the GMT and handwinding models.

    if you notice the dials of some of the models, they are basically very similar and the hands as well. this result in that using a standard base dial and hands and change the color a little here and there, you get a new model.

    if you prefer fuss free servicing, then damasko as most sinn models have argon gas which may needed to send to germany for service.

    i would take a sinn over damasko for the following reasons

    1) various designs and models
    2) case - tegimented.

    I was deciding between a Sinn and a Damasko awhile back too. The Sinn U1 and the Damasko DA44 specs are about equal and shares a similar kind of look too.

    The U1 looks more like a tool watch rugged and hardy to me, whereas the DA44 looks like a nice and sleek dress watch.

    Tough choice

    Hardened case - I go damasko - the ice hardened case still like new over the years especially the pvd black case

    Design - sinn, personally I love the submarine steel colour, u1 unique hand n bezel, ezm series

    Damasko design repeating
    Only newer models hv different

    Movement - earlier damasko well regulated then they hv improved silicon n ceramic kind of techs vs Sinn diapal n
    now with high tech in house, damasko win by far

    So I will choose u1 for design
    N in house for technologies

    Recently I am looking at Longine Legend Diver. Price is around Sinn U1 and slightly more expensive than the equivalent Damasko. The LLD is a beauty, very cool vintage looking diver watch. The internal bezel and use of Super-Compressor case is quite unique too.

    think it is not fair to compare a longines against a Sinn. very different in terms of case material, size for a start.

    Can't compare with longines

    Swiss vs German
    Historical vs modern
    Classic elegant vs toolish

    No offense, I'm big fan of longines , beside the lld u mentioned, I love all the heritage line
    Particularly - Czech pilot, over size crown, mono pusher ... Bargain deal with backing history
    Longines nvr push the heritage line, not their core, they produce more than Rolex omega yearly! Heritage line market too small for them.

    Just read new gmt from damasko
    No hour hand setting individually, but saw their new beautiful case. Combining polish n brush finish is tough, the case is made of highest grade steel, no other company can match
