CERTINA DS Action Chronograph

Equipped with either a moulded rubber strap or a three-row brushed stainless-steel bracelet, the new DS Action Chronograph is a stunning timepiece. Its broad bezel and oversized, skeletonised hands, indices and indicators make reading the time an easy matter in all conditions, enhanced by the uncompromising accuracy provided by its cutting-edge PrecidriveTM movement. The DS Action's sporty dial comes in either black or blue, to satisfy all watch lovers.

The brushed 316L stainless-steel case of the new, Precidrive- equipped CERTINA DS Action Chronograph is slightly oversized at 43 mm and makes a truly distinctive design statement. Its broad, polished unidirectional bezel wears large, highly-visible numerals, as well as a stripe of Superluminova along the first quadrant from 12 to 3 o’clock. Further Superluminova treatment on large dots at five-minute marks, inside the bold triangle-tipped indices at 12, 3 and 9 o’clock as well as on the various hands, ensures optimal underwater readability. Behind a sapphire crystal treated with anti-reflective coating on both faces, the black dial is home to two chronograph counters, for 30-min. and 1/10th-sec., and a small-second counter, each one highlighted by a silver-coloured outline. A date window is conveniently placed at 6 o'clock.
Safety features and famous DS-Concept (Double Security) assembly make the DS Action Chronograph especially well-suited to very demanding environments. A screw-on case-back, screw-in push-buttons as well as a protected screw-in crown inscribed with the letters "DS", allow a high level of security. The timepiece is water-resistant up to a pressure of 30 bar (300 m) and the presence of the historical CERTINA turtle logo on its case-back is a constant reminder of the DS Action’s outstanding quality.

Other versions of the DS Action are available to suit different occasions. A three-row stainless-steel bracelet version with a twin-push-button buckle and diver extension, a rubber-strap version with the same twin-push-button buckle with diver extension, and a titanium version, equipped with a matching twin-push-button diver-extension buckle.
