Certina DS Action - Maritime timekeeping with precision

20-04-2017

Just one day at sea and time simply washes away. But, as no moment should ever be lost, the new CERTINA DS Action is a fitting maritime celebration of Swiss watchmaking. This sporty, stylish three-hand quartz model unites water resistance up to 20 bar (200 m) with genuine, COSC-certified chronometer precision and exquisite good looks. Inside, the innovative, reliable Precidrive™ movement delivers extreme precision up to 10 times higher than seen in comparable quartz models.

Certina DS Action

Water is essential to life – and often one of its greatest joys. At the beach or poolside, water always sets our thoughts adrift to more essential and timeless places. So much the better if one has the company of a reliable timepiece worthy of his trust such as the CERTINA DS Action, with reliable Double Security (DS) and water resistance up to 20 bar (200 m). Any challenge is then welcome.

Inside, the unwavering heartbeat of a Precidrive™ quartz movement tracks time, with the same accuracy in or out of water. This innovative technology now powers all new Certina timepieces and its precision has received the endorsement of the Swiss Chronometer Certification Authority (COSC – Contrôle officiel suisse des chronomètres). The COSC imposes stringent requirements in modern time measurement technics and every CERTINA DS Action timepiece has been thoroughly tested by the renowned institute before receiving its own official COSC certificate.

Having outstanding qualities inside was of course worthy of equal attention to the outside and its superb design. The 41mm polished/brushed stainless steel case and bezel are beautifully complemented by a screw-down case back decorated with the famous CERTINA turtle shell emblem. A deep-blue dial with a fine sunray finish catches everyone’s glance – day or night, thanks to Super-LumiNova® treatment on the hands and indices. Red numerals for displaying minutes match the red seconds hand and give a colourful touch to a balanced design which finds the date window centrally placed at 6 o’clock. The main model is equipped with a five-row stainless steel bracelet with a folding buckle, and alternative models are available, with a black dial, green detailing and a steel bracelet, or red detailing and black leather strap, as well as rose-gold-coloured PVD full-steel models with either a silver-coloured or grey dial.
