CERTINA DS Podium GMT Chronograph

The new DS Podium GMT Chronograph featuring new sporty moulded-rubber strap and dual time display brings a double advantage of a second time zone and a 12 hour chronograph. This high precision timepiece is powered with a two time-zone ETA quartz chronograph in a brushed 316L stainless-steel case with beautiful black PVD detailing.

The oversized (42mm) case unites bold contours with select PVD accents for a totally sporty result. Bright tachymeter-scale numerals and the word “tachymeter” stand out in white against the black bezel, and complement the white/red dial elements shown against contrasting black dial areas. The sapphire crystal protects a sporty dial reminiscent of motor racing instruments, in a layout which includes a twin-function counter for 12-hour (on black ring) and 60-min. (on silver ring) chrono timing in a single indicator, a small-second counter and a special 24-hour GMT time-zone counter with a silver-shaded snailed surface finish.

The red central hand displays chronograph seconds against a brightly brushed sloping rim, and a bevelled date window is set inside the bottom edge of the small-second counter, at 6 o’clock for balance and visibility. The broad HM hands, red triangular 24-hour/GMT hand, indices and Arabic numerals are all treated with Superluminova for optimal readability under all lighting conditions. A sporty black moulded-rubber strap with pin clasp rounds out the DS Podium’s no-compromise design―a logical addition to a reliable timepiece which is water resistant up to a pressure of 10 bar (100m). The watch is equipped with CERTINA’s famous DS Concept, a reminder of which can be appreciated through the monogrammed “DS” on the tip of its protected crown.
