People who love fast-paced sports and life want to have excellent travel equipment. They want precision, durability and irresistible appeal. This is especially true for pioneers who are keen to surpass themselves. The latest CERTINA DS Podium 1/10 second chronograph uses a firm and stylish NATO strap and a reliable stainless steel buckle, which perfectly matches customer expectations. These elements fully show the dynamic personality of this chronograph. Thanks to Certina’s strict watchmaking standards and excellent performance guarantee, this watch can reach 1/10 in various harsh use environments. Timing accuracy in seconds.
The name of this special strap is derived from the ‘NATO article number’, which was the term used by the British military in 1973 to adopt this durable and woven strap. Over the past few decades, the quality of these outstanding materials has been tested by countless battlefield smokers and is also very popular among the public. They are tear-resistant, water-resistant, provide excellent security and avant-garde appearance, and they are very stylish with slightly matte details. In this new addition to the DS Podium chronograph family, Swiss watchmaker CERTINA mixes a precise and reliable movement with a wild NATO look.
The CERTINA DS Podium 1/10 second chronograph offers amazing accuracy and exacting accuracy. At the push of a button, the chronograph at two o’clock begins to display real-time timing accurate to 1 / 10th of a second. To save power, the chronograph dial automatically stops displaying after sixty seconds, but continues to count in the background with the same accuracy. The innovative Precidrive ™ quartz movement is loyal at the centre, giving this outstanding watch excellent precision.
The CERTINA DS Podium 1 / 10-second chronograph uses an avant-garde speedometer scale on the slightly chamfered bezel. The 41 mm diameter black PVD-plated stainless steel watch, sporting silver hour markers and numerals shine against the black surface for a more eye-catching aesthetic. The hour and minute hands are coated with industrial-grade Super-LumiNova®, ensuring outstanding readability even in the dark. Like other CERTINA products, the well-known DS (Double Insurance Technology) complements meticulous Swiss-made quality, ensuring high durability and consistent accuracy. The black and gray striped strap coincides with the origin of the army. It has a comfortable wrist fit. It is wrapped around the wrist under the case, and is fixed with three sets of steel ring buckles and a solid pin buckle. Provides reliable security. The brand also offers another equally sporty watch with a matte and polished case surface, a black dial and red and black stripes.
