With the launch of the new DS Podium Chronograph Lap Timer – Racing Edition, Swiss watchmaker CERTINA brings the precision and high-speed thrills of professional racing to the wearer’s wrist. In a timepiece capable of measuring tenths of a second in real time and certified as a genuine COSC Chronometer, a lap-timer function adds the final touch that every racing fan will cherish. The yellow-and-black first run of the Racing Edition is dedicated to the ADAC GT Masters series.
For decades the CERTINA name has been associated with motorsport – an engagement not without its share of consequences. A particularly exciting one now comes in the form of a zero-compromise timepiece, the new DS Podium Chronograph Lap Timer – Racing Edition, equipped with the superbly accurate Precidrive™ quartz movement and COSC certification as a genuine chronometer.
The new DS Podium Chronograph Lap Timer Racing Edition marks the launch of a new CERTINA product series to celebrate the brand’s continued commitment to motorsport. Three additional variants will also be produced: brushed and polished stainless-steel case with black dial and either a three-row stainless-steel bracelet or black perforated leather strap, as well as a black PVD case model with green/white detailing on the dial and black leather strap with green stitching. All models are equipped with a twin-pushbutton butterfly closure and, of course, are produced using the famous CERTINA DS (Double Security) Concept.
