Certina presents DS Chronograph Automatic, a brand new timepiece that reflects the brand’s more than 130 years of experience in the art of Swiss watchmaking. Ultra-classic and exceptionally innovative at once, the design of the elegant DS Chronograph Automatic goes back to a model from the late 1940s. Inside, it incorporates a state-of-the-art silicon balance spring – a first for Certina.
The DS Chronograph Automatic is driven by a new chronograph movement, which is an advanced development of the famous Valjoux 7753. The automatic movement’s innovative silicon balance spring has a particularly regular beat and remains immune to abrupt changes in temperature and to magnetic fields. Given the famous Double Security (DS) Concept and the new model’s comfortable 60-hour power reserve, the wearer can always count on its accuracy.
The DS Chronograph Automatic offers an absolutely first-class appearance as well, its classic lines inspired by a Certina model from the 1940s. The convex, silver-coloured dial with the lightly curved blue hands, is a characteristic feature of classic, high-end wristwatches. The watch glass is perfectly complementary: finely finished, it offers superb views from all sides. The glass is made of scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and mounted on a 42-mm stainless steel case.
The Chronograph functions lend the classic design an understated, sporting touch. The central stop-seconds and 30-minute counters are complemented by tachometric and telemetric scales at the edge of the dial.
The watch is worn on a black leather strap and butterfly closure.
