Swiss watch brand Certina has created the DS Action Diver Sea Turtle Conservancy Special Edition watch to cement its partnership with the Sea Turtle Conservancy (STC), an organization that devotes itself to the conservation of the sea turtle and its habitats.
The Florida-based organization has been advocating the conservation of the sea turtle since 1959 – the same year in which the premiere of the Certina DS Concept was celebrated in Europe. The DS Concept lent the modern art of watchmaking new levels of reliability, durability and precision, and nowadays, is an important and sought-after feature of every Certina timepiece.
The DS Action Diver Sea Turtle Conservancy watch meets all the requirements of the ISO 6425 standard for diver’s watches. Its automatic Powermatic 80 movement with a power reserve of 80 hours is housed in a stainless steel case with a 43 mm diameter.
A unidirectional bezel, extensive Super-LumiNova® coating, a screw-down crown and screw-down case back complete the ultra-resistant DS Concept and ensure water resistance to depths of up to 300 metres.
The satin-finished stainless steel bracelet comes with a folding buckle with twin push-buttons and diver extension. A blue second hand and matching “Diver’s Watch 300 m” lettering are a reference to the colour of the Sea Turtle Conservancy, and the organisation’s turtle logo is featured on the back of the case.
