About Certina DS

Running, cycling, climbing, diving: every day you are pushing yourself, breaking boundaries, and smashing records, so you need a watch that can keep up with you. You need a Certina DS. In the 1950s, Philipp Kurth worked on designs for a wristwatch that was as durable as possible. The result was the Double Safety (DS) model wristwatch. Achieving this rugged design involved a floated mounting for the entire movement, with an elastic shock absorber ring, an air gap between the dial and the case, additional sealing, and extra thick Plexiglas. A DS chronograph from Certina is the exciting combination of a highly durable watch with precision movements, offering style, accuracy, and dependability. Models include the DS SPEL, so named because it marries sport and elegance with eye-catching results, and the retro Powermatic 80, which offers 80 hours of power reserve and a high-class finish. All of these watches are of the highest quality, as you would expect from a company that celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2013. Enjoy classic style, and rugged durability, with a Certina DS watch, available from the vast inventory on eBay.
