Certina DS Furious

Certina DS Furious, a retro grade Chronograph model was one of the new models unveiled by Certina in 2008.Driven by the spark of a new challenge, and the quest for perfection in movement, modern life rides on from one stimulating extreme to the next. Every instant defines its essence through perpetual tempo at the frontier of each man’s limits. The creative impulse at Certina follows this extraordinarily dynamic pace, and its goal of bringing outstanding timepieces of the highest quality to an ever-wider public remains central to its philosophy.

Such is the motivation behind the new DS Furious line. This retrospective gents’ chronograph catches the eye with its markedly youthful edge. Cut along a distinctly extreme-sport orientation, the new DS Furious strikes a note of high modernity through a design that is both daring and technocentric, in which the brilliant interplay of textures and surfaces is instantly noticeable. Its satin-finished watch case is equipped with a black PVD bezel, and its carbon-fibre dial scores a spirited geometric composition along the lines of motorsport cockpit dashboards.

The chronograph timing pointers run in an original, reverse direction and reset once their cycle has completed. The 30-second indicator runs along a 180-degree counterclockwise arc, while the 5-minute indicator follows its own 120-degree semicircle. The 60-minute counter runs a graduated course in a clockwise direction through 144 degrees, to complete this brilliant show of technicality and verve. The crown is protected by two solid projections on the case, and sports a small bright orange rubber knob on its end. The chrono system’s two push buttons feature a clever black PVD detail along the side, for visual balance.

Owing to an imaginative lengthwise slotting of their surface and their brilliant orange pointers, the hour and minute hands make clear the uncompromisingly sporty orientation of the DS Furious. Set to meet any kind of challenge, this daring timepiece is equipped with a black rubber wrist strap, and is intended for young and forever-young sportsmen with a bent for extreme sports and high-action lifestyles. The DS Furiousis available in a variety of models to suit all wearers: black or silver-colour dial, blue-colour chrono counters and also in a steel bracelet version. It also comes in a three-hand model.
