Chic yet delightfully sporty, the new DS First Lady Ceramic chronograph from CERTINA instantly catches the eye. Its brushed 38 mm case with polished lugs and bezel is adorned with a beautiful rim of white (or black) finely toothed ceramic material along the surface. These bright elements are complemented by polished push-buttons and a ceramic-tipped crown, as well as the historical CERTINA turtle emblem on the case back.
Behind the sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both faces, a smart-looking dial with three counters and gorgeous PVD rose-gold elements against white (or black) is enhanced by a delicate floral background texture for a beautifully stylish effect. Each of the three counters, used respectively for 30 min., 1/10th sec. and small-second timing, wears a fine PVD rose-gold edge to match the hands, Arabic numerals and indices used in this very feminine timepiece. The central second hand is used to display chronograph seconds against a scale of small PVD rose-gold dots set around the dial, next to a matching rim that adds perspective to the watch design. A date window is discreetly placed inside the small-second counter, at 6 o’clock.
Additional versions of the timepiece are available, including an even sportier black or white model equipped with a matching rubber strap, one with a stainless-steel/ceramic bracelet (with matching white or black ceramic detailing) and an ultra-sporty flat-ceramic-bezel model with a plain white or black dial without the decorative floral motif. All models make use of the same twin-push-button butterfly buckle.
