CERTINA DS Sport Chronograph

The CERTINA DS Sport, with its Swiss Made Precidrive quartz movement, brings chronometer-level precision to a pure-sport timepiece with a name you can trust.

With a brushed 316L stainless-steel case and a polished crown and push-buttons, the DS Sport chronograph is fitted with cool, matching three-row bracelet in brushed stainless steel which flows beautifully into the sporty lug and case design, with accents added to the upper lug surfaces for maximum visual effect. The CERTINA turtle symbol is embossed in relief on the case back, a reminder of the timepiece’s reliability, strength and durability.

Inside, the DS Sport chronograph is equipped with a Swiss Made ETA Precidrive quartz movement which gives the watch the accuracy of a chronometer, +/- 10 sec./year. Against the black dial surface, behind a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both faces, time is displayed with clever andoriginal aesthetics. Green is used for the chronograph central 60 sec. hand, as well as the 30 min. and 1/10th sec. chronograph counters, to match green detailing in the upper-right quadrant of the bezel.

The 30 minutes and small-second counters, respectively at the 10 and 6 o’clock position, are rimmed with a solid, bright border to enhance readability, while the 1/10th sec. counter and its black background emulate a sporty automotive aesthetic, reminder of CERTINA’s strong link with motor sport.

A contrasting date window is placed at the 4 o’clock position. The nickelled indices, HM hands and large ‘12’ dial numeral are treated with a generous touch of Superluminova. The DS Sport is built with active lifestyles in mind and sports all the reliability features of CERTINA’s well-known DS Concept. The watch is water-resistant up to a pressure of 10 bar (100 m), and its three-row stainless-steel bracelet is held fast by a butterfly buckle with twin push-buttons. A further model is also available, with red hands instead of green, and an uncompromisingly sporty black rubber strap, embossed with the CERTINA name.
