CERTINA DS Eagle (New Models – 2014)

Specially designed for the lovers of extreme sports, the DS Eagle is an outstanding sports watch perfected with exceptional finishing and powered with a highly accurate Swiss-Made ETA Precidrive quartz movement. Rubber detailing on the bezel and gorgeous brushed/polished finishing strikes up a rugged, virile design around a stainless-steel case with PVD rose-gold and black.

The ETA Precidrive quartz movement ensures full precision under the most demanding circumstances. The large (44mm), eye catching PVD rose-gold brushed/polished case opens onto a broad dial with a sporty, technical feel. Behind a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both faces, a central textured area complements the strong geometrics of the case. Large skeletonised HM hands treated with Superluminova, a contrasting red second hand and a date window at the six o’clock position report time with great legibility.

Over the PVD black stainless-steel bezel, an innovative black moulded-rubber overlay with white numerals reinforces the dynamic nature of the DS Eagle, along with a PVD black stainless-steel strip bearing the CERTINA name and fastened to the left side of the case with two PVD black screws.

Balancing this sturdy design, are two crown protection elements also in PVD black steel and held by similar screws, on either side of the screw-in crown, trimmed with a sporty red line. The watch is water-resistant up to a pressure of 20 bar (200 m) and is equipped with a screw-on case back that shows an embossed CERTINA turtle motif, past and present symbol of water-resistance, robustness and long life for the brand.

The DS Eagle is equipped with the DS Concept, as evidenced by the monogrammed letters “DS” on the crown tip. The timepiece wears a handsome textured rubber strap held in place with PVD black screws, and a large pin-clasp buckle.

Other versions include a two-tone (stainless steel/PVD black) model with a black rubber strap, as well as an all-black version with a black rubber strap, a black dial and black and Superluminova white indices.
