Swiss watchmaker Certina presents a contemporary interpretation of its iconic DS-2 watch. This new timepiece is equipped with Cal. ETA Powermatic 80.611, a modern automatic movement with anti-magnetic Nivachron balance spring.
Introduced in 1968, DS-2 was equipped with the tried and tested Certina Double Security concept for ensuring optimum water resistance. Inspired by this 1970s watch, DS-2 POWERMATIC 80 features a tonneau-shaped case in stainless steel. The soft corners and edges are combined with a round dial and sapphire crystal.
The new DS-2 is available in four versions, with dials in matt black and satin-brushed silver, blue or black. Rectangular hands and indexes with Super-LumiNova highlighting underscore the vintage look of the watch. The stainless steel case (width 40mm, length 38 mm) is worn on a Milanese mesh bracelet or a NATO strap made of #tide ocean material®, which is based on plastics fished from the ocean.
The current model features a state-of-the-art automatic movement with up to 80 hours of power reserve and an anti-magnetic NivachronTM balance spring. Visible through the sapphire crystal case back, the ETA Powermatic 80.611 automatic caliber reliably drives the hours, minutes and second hands, along with the date display at 3 o’clock.
Equipped with a screw-down crown and the Double Security (DS) system, the watch is water-resistant to 20 bar (200 m).
The new DS-2 Powermatic 80 will be available starting in February 2022 from authorised Certina dealers around the world.
