Swiss watch CERTINA presents DS Podium Valgranges Automatic, a new addition to its best-selling DS Podium range.
The DS Podium saga has been an on-going CERTINA success story since 2004. The new DS Podium Valgranges Automatic comes to life with distinct brio, proud of its sport-tinged class and with a boldly original design. Its generous case bespeaks a deep elegance and masculinity, detailed in the precious and most longstanding CERTINA tradition.
CERTINA’s masterly watchmaking vocabulary flows around these significant words: Style, Reliability and Precision. The Swiss watchmaker’s latest chronograph, the DS Podium Valgranges, underlines these rare and valuable principles, and boldly innovates, with a new timepiece whose outstanding outer dimensions reach beyond the commonplace.
A colossal 44 mm case houses the ETA Valgranges Automatic Chrono movement, specially designed for use in ample-cased watches and intended to bring together the highest technological qualities.
The new DS Podium Valgranges expresses cutting-edge sport-classical values in a pure, highly aesthetic form. Its satin-finished steel case carries a contrasting polished steel bezel with clear and bright tachymeter markings.
The sporty basic-black dial face and its outstanding attention to detail are protected by a sapphire crystal with anti-reflection coating, on both sides of the glass. Chronograph timing is shown by red-coloured hands, large seconds, hours and minutes over round areas with delicately machined concentric circles. A silvery border brings a gentle highlight, at the 3 and 6 o’clock positions.
A transparent watch case back reveals the superb finesse and artistry of the exceptional Valgranges movement, for all to see and behold. The DS Podium Automatic Chrono is available in different configurations.
One model carries a stylish brown leather strap, while another version has light silvery chrono counters, and a satin-finished solid stainless steel bracelet, for an even sportier note.
