The DS Action Diver in a 43-mm stainless steel case is a best-selling Certina watch collection. Now the brand has introduced an updated version that remains faithful to the character of the bestseller while presenting enhanced individual elements. The unidirectional rotating bezel, for example, is now made of polished ceramic, known for its scratch-resistant qualities.
The colour-matched dial is adorned with striking hands and indexes whose generous Super-LumiNova® coating offers superb legibility even in the dark. Depending upon the dial color, the watch features a black, blue or green ceramic bezel-insert.
Certina has proposed seven new models of its DS Action Diver 43mm watch: three in stainless steel, two in steel with yellow gold PVD and two in titanium. The stainless steel versions respectively feature black, dark-blue and dark-green dials.
The brand is offering black and dark blue dial options with yellow gold PVD case. Available in two iterations, the DS Action Diver 43mm in titanium has a black dial with beige Super-LumiNova®.
Among the new models, the first six are fitted with matching metal bracelets with integrated diver’s extension. The seventh model (titanium) comes with a NATO strap.
With its screw-down and protected crown and a screw-in case back the watch is water-resistant to 300 metres and easily meets the requirements of the ISO 6425 standard for diver’s watches. Its scratch-resistant sapphire crystal is an integral feature of the DS (Double Security) concept.
The DS Action Diver’s Powermatic movement promises reliable precision. Exceptionally efficient, the self-winding caliber delivers up to 80 hours of power reserve. The NivachronTM balance spring remains immune to the negative influence of magnetic fields.
The new 43-mm DS Action Diver models with ceramic bezels and NivachronTM balance springs will be available from authorised Certina dealers worldwide beginning in February 2022.
Its retail price range in Switzerland is CHF 880 to CHF 1,055.
