With its carbon-fiber dial surface and extreme precision, the limited-edition WRC version of the DS Podium Big Size is absolutely race-ready, and celebrates the third year of partnership between CERTINA and the WRC. With the virile good looks of a 44mm case, a broad bezel, branded rubber strap and sporty colour detailing in official CERTINA green, the timepiece is a no-compromise essential for every car-racing enthusiast.
The DS Podium Big Size Chronograph WRC (World Rally Championship) Limited Edition beautifully underlines the ongoing partnership between CERTINA and the famous WRC racing organisation. The solid character of its 44-mm brushed stainless-steel case, polished tachymeter bezel, crown and push-buttons, and the carbon-fiber dial surface tell the story – confirmed by two words in CERTINA green: Limited Edition. Only 5000 units of this special watch will be produced.
Dark chronograph counters with bright, snailed outlines show 12-hour, 30-min. and small-second timing, while two central hands provide 60-sec. and 1/100th-sec. information. The former uses a silver-coloured scale punctuated by dots of Superluminova at each five-minute point, while the latter displays 1/100ths against a raised black outer rim with contrasting white numbers and a bold, green-coloured “100” at 12-o’clock. Timing is sharp and highly visible throughout, thanks to contrasting surface finishes and bright-green detailing on selected items, as well as generous amounts of Superluminova on the nickelled HM hands, next to oversized numerals and facetted indices. A date window is placed at 6 o’clock inside the lower counter.
