The new DS MULTI-8 All-black version by CERTINA is equipped with the unique ETA 8-function analog-digital movement as the original DS MULTI-8, housed inside a sporty black PVD coated case. It brings a highly useful array of features to this timepiece, such as twin “time-swap” time-zones over its analog HM hands, and full calendar-week information, alarm, timer and chrono functions over its digital display.
Professional and action-ready at first glance, the DS MULTI-8’s technical nature comes alive at the push of its three control buttons, which also activate the sharp backlit display.
In a gorgeous, oversized 316L stainless steel case with PVD black coating in contrasting finishes—finely brushed lugs next to polished case sides and bezel—the DS MULTI-8 is at ease in any dynamic setting, business environment or sporty escapade. Its sapphire crystal is treated with anti-reflection coating on both faces, to ensure optimal reading of hands and digital display.
Its black dial is sporty and modern, and a generous amount of Superluminova on its HM hands and Arabic numerals, ensures perfect readability under all conditions. The DS MULTI-8 sports three beautifully finished push-buttons to operate its various functions. The upper and lower buttons are slightly smaller while the central button, larger and thicker, carries the symbolic ‘DS’ monogram upon its smoothly rounded tip. Equipped with the CERTINA DS Concept, the watch is also water resistant up to a pressure of 10 bar (100 m).
The DS MULTI-8 All-black comes with a black carbon-fiber-look leather strap with matching black PVD twin-pushbutton butterfly clasp.
