A change in perspective on the wrist
The mechanical DS-1 lends Certina’s watchmaking tradition a modern, urban face, as the latest versions prove with great flair. Three dynamic models appear in powerful colours – dark blue, grey and brown – each equipped with two different, easily interchangeable straps. One presents a totally new option: a high-quality fabric strap made of #tide ocean material®, which is based on plastics fished from the ocean – the ideal accessory for an eco-friendly style.
Timeless and stylish: three powerful colours for the DS-1 Powermatic 80
The clear design of the DS-1 makes it the modern classic in the Certina collection. The 40 mm stainless steel case now frames domed dials in dark blue, chocolate brown or light grey with a sunray finish and faceted indexes. Each of the three versions has its own character. The brown variant with yellow gold accents is complemented by a stainless steel Milanese bracelet and a dark brown leather strap. The light grey DS-1 Powermatic 80 offers a pure, modern look. Silver-coloured hands and indexes are set off by a Milanese bracelet and a grey fabric strap in #tide ocean material®. The blue version is the trendsetter of the trio, with rose gold-coloured elements, a five-link stainless steel bracelet and a blue fabric strap in #tide ocean material®. Common to all three models are the quick-change system for the straps, a domed sapphire crystal, transparent case back and, naturally, the Double Security (DS) concept.
Sustainable and clever: a new generation of watch straps
Swiss precision and innovation go hand in hand with the new DS-1 Powermatic 80. Working together with scientists from the OST – Eastern Switzerland University of Applied Sciences, #tide ocean material® developed an award-winning method, based on a mechanical up-cycling principle, of processing waste plastics recovered from the oceans. Certina shares their commitment to greater environmental protection and sustainability. The result: a new generation of high-quality, robust and beautiful fabric watch straps.
Modern and mechanical: the Powermatic movement with NivachronTM balance spring
The beating heart of the new trio is a modern Powermatic movement with a power reserve of up to 80 hours and a NivachronTM balance spring. Its anti-magnetic qualities and resistance ensure maximum precision and longevity for the filigreed mechanism at the heart of the watch.
A pathfinder with class. The path of history is marked with names and dates at significant points along the way. In the records of Swiss watchmaker Certina, the year 1968 marks one such milestone. At the time, the DS-2 set new standards in terms of resistance. Today the brand brings the striking look of the 60s back to life, adding a state-of-the-art automatic movement…
