An affordable chronograph with flyback and split-seconds functions.

The Bienne-based Swatch Group brand has a prime spot in the affordable sports watch sector.

If you’re looking for an easy-to-use watch to time several things simultaneously without breaking the bank then the DS-2 Flyback Chronograph by Certina is for you! For under 1000 Swiss Francs you get chronograph, flyback and split-seconds functions all beautifully laid out on a well-balanced dial.


It comes in two black models with a dash of colour on the chronograph: sporty scarlet or electric green reminiscent of the brand’s turtle logo. The split-seconds in the middle, chronograph hour and minute hands at 10 and 2 respectively are splashed with colour. The hours and minutes appear in the centre whilst the small seconds stand at 6. The off-centre counter at the bottom surrounds the black-on-white date display.

The 43mm steel case comes with a black bezel engraved with a tachymeter scale. The chronograph is fuelled by a quartz movement designed by ETA and activated using two classic pushers at 2 and 4 on the case whilst the split-seconds function is powered by a button with a colourful ring at 10.

Price: 864 CHF
