Certina Presents DS Action Diver

DS Action Diver
The power of precision in the wet

Action and water inspire great sporting achievements, especially when CERTINA Double Security (DS) watchmaking joins in. The DS Action Diver has been reaffirming this for years now and continues to meet the stringent ISO 6425 standard for diving watches. Its latest re-issue even exceeds this high internationally-respected mark, with water-resistance up to 300 meters and a highly innovative PowermaticTM 80 movement, to provide the same extreme timekeeping precision, in or out of water.

Whether out surfing, snorkelling or diving among coral reefs, true athletes are most at home underwater. Of course, exploring their favourite element or just busy with everyday life, they want the company of a reliable timepiece, capable of great precision in demanding environments. As a proven diver’s watch, the latest CERTINA DS Action Diver – with its world-renowned ISO 6425 certification, fulfils such requirements with ease. Inside, a celebrated PowermaticTM 80 automatic movement with 80 hours of power reserve, adds exactly the kind of dependable precision needed when that last wave seems to stretch a little longer than expected.

Marine timepieces have long been an integral part of the CERTINA collection and the DS Action Diver one of its most sporty, modern representatives. A robust 43mm brushed stainless steel case equipped with a black aluminium unidirectional rotatable bezel conveys a strong seaside feel, with its toothed, easy-grip surface. A protected Super-LumiNova® marking (at 12 o’clock) ensures that dive times can be easily consulted even in darkness. A screw-down case back, decorated with the historical CERTINA turtle emblem, and a protected screw-in crown give the DS Action Diver great reliability under water.

The high-contrast dial design is colour-matched to the bezel in a slick black-lacquered finish. Generous amounts of Super-LumiNova® on the hands and large indices enhance readability under all light conditions. The sapphire crystal, with antireflective coating on both faces, is just one of the many unmistakable features of the Double Security (DS) Concept that has guaranteed the highest strength and water resistance in all CERTINA timepieces since the 1960s. The new DS Action Diver is equipped with a three-row brushed stainless steel bracelet with a twin-pushbutton folding buckle with adjustable diving extension. An alternative model is available, with a rubber strap or with stainless steel bracelet, and a gorgeous blue dial with colour-matched bezel.
