The DS Powermatic 80, the latest three-hand model in the Certina collection, is inspired by the popular DS Chronograph Automatic from the year 2020.
Unlike its big brother, however, the new three-hander features a 40 mm case in pure stainless steel or with a rose gold PVD or yellow gold PVD finish.
A sapphire box glass offers optimal views of the dial and evokes memories of historic timepieces. The finely worked hands contribute to the vintage impression: the slim, classic blued seconds hand and the Super-LumiNova® coated minute and hour hands.
The lightly domed dials are in luminous white, shimmering gold, or dark blue, green or brown with a refined sunburst finish. The straps, which can be removed and exchanged at any time thanks to the quick-change system, offer fashionable accents: as a modern NATO strap in blue-brown stripes or anthracite, or in light or dark brown patent leather.
Just as the exterior of the watch combines vintage details with contemporary elements, the interior blends the present and the past. The refined construction of the Powermatic 80.611 automatic movement brings the traditional art of watchmaking to life while simultaneously making use of state-of-the-art technologies. The NivachronTM balance spring is uninfluenced by magnetic fields. The watch has a power reserve of up to 80 hours.
The DS Powermatic 80 watch features the same reliability and robustness that characterizes all of the brand’s models. A key factor is the famous DS system of Double Security, which has delivered enhanced resistance since the 1960s and lends the new watch water resistance up to 10 bar (100 metres).
