CERTINA DS Eagle Chrono Automatic

Created to meet the requirements of the most demanding watch lovers, the new DS Eagle automatic chronograph features a large, expressive 46-mm case in brushed/polished PVD rose-gold. First, sporty-looking screws strike a rhythmic note over the contrasting black bezel. Additional ones bring similar beauty and function to the crown guard, strap lugs and see-through case back, whose surface is equipped with a large CERTINA turtle symbol skeletonised against the glass, which lets watch lovers appreciate the fine workings of its high-quality ETA automatic movement.

The textured black dial and strong, prominent elements, colour-trimmed chronograph counters and broad, skeletonised HM hands add to the originality of the design and make reading the time both clear and highly precise, through a sapphire crystal treated with anti-reflective coating on both faces.
The tachymeter scale is placed along an angled outer rim around the dial for best viewing. To enhance readability yet further, even in low-light conditions, a generous amount of Superluminova has been added to the rectangular indices and the HM hands. The main model wears beautiful PVD rose-gold treatment over the main case areas, crown, push-buttons, HM and small-second hands,as well as on the indices and various fastening screws, in bold contrast with the black bezel, crown guard and rubber strap.

The DS Eagle Chrono includes full chronograph functions through its three coloured hands, in red or green according to the model chosen, over two 6-hour and 30-min. counters and through the central second hand, and a date window is comfortably placed at 3 o’clock. Matching coloured details are used on four of the indices as well as on the stem of the screw-in crown. The letters “DS” on the crown tip are a reminder that the DS Eagle is assembled using the reliable and well-known CERTINA DS Concept, to ensure maximum protection of its vital components.
The timepiece is water-resistant up to a pressure of 20 bar (200 m). Its contoured and textured black rubber strap is held in place by four PVD-coated black screws on each side and fastens through a large and reliable pin-clasp buckle.

Other versions of the DS Eagle are available, including a mixed brushed/polished natural stainless steel and black model, or a fully-black version with handsome green chronograph hands, crown trim and small counter detailing.
