WARNING: the DSSD will ruin your other watches!

I wore my old watch the other day for the first time since acquiring my DSSD. It felt like I had a replica of a watch on my wrist - the weight difference was so substantial and I immediately wanted to drive back home and put my DeepSea back on! Need to really keep this in mind with any potential future watch purchases.

Exactly! That's why my DSSD has become my daily. When I put it on in the morning there is a connection that I just don't feel with my other watches.

I was in Zurich recently and had to get some medical treatment for a flu - the positive part of the experience (other than the amazing Swiss health care system) was that the Doctor also had a DSSD Black dial and he said the exact same thing - it just has a presence on the wrist so that you know it is there even though it's completely comfortable to wear.

Exactly how I feel now. I saw someone wearing a sub at the Apple store and I thought wow that thing looks so much slimmer and smaller now, haha my perspective is totally ruined!

Would not trade or sell my DSSD for anything!

In Rolex terms, it can indeed tend to push the others aside a bit.
At least that's how it played out for me. After the arrival of the DSSD in my life all the other Rolex watches were redundant so had to go to happier homes

I hadn't worn my SS Daytona in a quite some time and when I recently wore it I could not believe how small and light it felt.

Reading this thread made me laugh,

So true after I wear my dssd for a day or two it ruins my subs / omegas .

That said I do have a soft spot for my hulk!

DSSD and Omega Ti PO chrono are my favorites. When I want a small "dress" watch, I go with the SD43:)

Just joined the club!!! The more I look at it the less it looks big. On another note, I have seen the rubber b band but mostly it’s black. Anyone have another colour they can share how it looks? Is there another band rubber or leather you guys would reccomend?

Welcome Xkwazexboy

one thing the owners of a Deepsea have in common. The feeling of privilege and pride to own
the most prestigious Diver

Thanks Gerry62, I got lucky this time. I walked into an AD after dropping my kid at a birthday party and had an hour to kill. It was just sitting in the display. Even wore it to sleep last night hahaha

Can I join the DSSD club please? I just bought a JC DSSD and love it!

I much prefer it to the sub I previously had. Once I got used to it after the first few hours I can't imagine wearing anything else - it's reassuringly solid and weighty!

Quick question will I be safe getting it wet in the shower?
