Resistance to extreme conditions
Throughout its history, the Certina firm has pioneered many technical advances. In 1959, he introduced the first waterproof watch “DS” (Double Security), which has been one of his most popular watches. This design includes a double sealing system that protects the watch from moisture and shock. In 1960, Certina introduced the first Swiss electronic watch. In 1970, the brand became the first to use the quick-set system in its watches, allowing wearers to set the time without having to move the minute hand.
Currently, one of the most popular models of the brand is the Certina DS Action diver. This Certina watch is designed to withstand extreme conditions, and features a unidirectional rotating bezel for diving, water resistance to 300 meters, and a stainless steel strap for durability. The DS Action Diver also features a sleek and sporty aesthetic, making it an attractive watch for both everyday wear and special occasions.
