DS-1 Powermatic 80
This “DS” has nothing to do with a certain games console; it stands for “Double Security”, a system designed by Certina fifty years ago. It uses various joints positioned around the case to provide excellent shock and water resistance. The 40mm polished satin-finish steel case (including a rose gold PVD-coated steel version) houses a Powermatic calibre. The self-winding movement provides an 80-hour power reserve and brings to life the time and date functions. The dial is available in black or anthracite grey rimmed with black or silver and a black or grey graduated chapter ring with the minute track. The nickel-plated luminescent hour and minute hands and slim central seconds lie in the middle of the dial. The 12 indices also have a phosphorescent coating. The white date display lies at 6 o’ clock. Price: 860 CHF – 1,100 CHF
