The new DS-1 Skeleton watch combines the minimalistic aesthetic of the classic Certina DS-1 with an elegant and intriguing open-face design. The new range features a round cutaway window in the dial, offering the views of the Powermatic 80 movement beating inside.
In each of the debut DS-1 Skeleton models, the viewer is treated to close-ups of a matt grey frame holding gears, jewels and the balance spring in place, all easily visible through the curved sapphire crystal protecting the dial.
Oversized indexes are mounted on a broad band surrounding the round skeleton window, marking the hours with high-contrast accents to ensure perfect legibility.
The Powermatic 80’s fascinating mechanics can also be admired through the transparent crystal at the back of the watch. The movement has a power reserve of up to 80 hours and features a NivachronTM balance spring.
The Certina DS-1 Skeleton is a classic three-hander in stainless steel with three different dials and bracelets. A blue-dial version is worn with a polished and satin-brushed five-link stainless steel bracelet.
The second variant in shades of steely grey features a Milanese mesh bracelet. Rounding off the premiere DS-1 Skeleton collection is a third version fitted with a classic dark brown leather strap, perfectly matched to the dial’s warm hues.
All DS-1 Skeleton models feature the DS (Double Security) concept, which ensures enhanced resilience, shock- and water resistance thanks to a combination of seals, gaskets and robust materials.
