CERTINA DS Action Diver Automatic Chronograph

The new CERTINA DS Action Diver Automatic Chronograph is a logical extension to its previous DS Action series of extreme-sport timepieces. Uncompromising in both appearance and function, it is produced along the stringent ISO 6425 standard for diver’s watches.

The DS Action Diver Chronograph stands out instantly thanks to its 45.2 mm brushed steel case and polished, massive bezel: broad, large-toothed and easy to handle in any setting, its Superluminova-treated face and oversized numerals ensure clear reading even in deep underwater darkness. Additional amounts of Superluminova on its wide hands, indices and inside a large dot punctuating the white and red central second hand, ensure maximum readability against the contrasting black dial surface. A sapphire crystal with anti-reflection coating protects this impressive timepiece from all underwater perils.

This DS Action Diver Chronograph is equipped with an ETA 7753 automatic movement, for precise and worry-free timing, with small second and 30-min counters, hours, minutes, central seconds and date, whose quick-set push-button is placed at 10 o’clock. The high reliability of the DS Action Diver is assured by the DS Concept, as well as production in accordance with the ISO 6425 specification, as confirmed by the inscription ‘Diver’s watch 200 m / ISO 6425’ on the dial face. With a protected screw-in crown (monogrammed with the letters DS), 3 screw-in push-buttons as well as a screw-on case back, the DS Action Diver is water resistant to a diving depth of 200m.

A stylish touch is given to the push-buttons, with clever detailing in black PVD coating on selected angles. In a wink back at history, the solid case back sports a turtle logo, symbol of extreme water resistance in Certina timepieces in the 50s and 60s. A beautifully detailed three-row fully-brushed stainless steel bracelet with a folding safety buckle and diving extension ensure that your DS Action Diver stays with you at all times.

A further version is available with a two-tone rubber strap neatly inscribed with the words CERTINA, DIVER and the former Certina logo, and equipped with a folding safety buckle and diving extension.
