DS Limited Edition Ole Einar Bjørndalen
Not only is Norwegian athlete Ole Einar Bjørndalen the most decorated sportsman in the history of the biathlon with many victories over the course of a 22 year career, he has also been Certina’s loyal ambassador since 2011. In honour to a man whose list of accolades is more than impressive, Certina is devoting a special edition limited to 2014 watches from the DS collection to him. In terms of design, the domed grey anthracite dial features baton-shaped indices, three red Arabic numerals and a central seconds hand, two slim hour and minute hands and a date display at 6 o’ clock. Certina has also added 5 luminescent dots under the date in a nod to the 5 targets in the biathlon. In terms of mechanics, the openwork back showcases the self-winding movement and oscillating weight in the Norwegian flag colours with the champion’s signature. The Powermatic 8011 calibre has an 80-hour power reserve housed in a 40mm steel case. Price: 920 €
