We’ve seen such countless promising pieces this year from more modest Swatch Group brands, it was a joy. From Tissot, Longines, Hamilton and obviously Certina . A year ago when we previously visited the brand we didn’t have the foggiest idea what’s in store. In 2018 notwithstanding, things went in a new direction. I tend not to take a gander at online media during the reasonable. I don’t need other associates’ presents on ruin the shock for me. Be that as it may, I saw the new Certina DS PH200M and I was unable to stand by to put my hands on it. At last, Certina additionally chose to take motivation from one of their to a great extent fruitful vintage models and the outcome is extremely satisfying. We generally connected Certina with extraordinary plunge watches that join earth shattering detail. It’s nothing unexpected the new Certina DS PH200M likewise strolls this path.
Certina DS in 1967
The first Certina DS (Double Security) PH200M saw the light of the without precedent for 1967 under the reference 5801 117. It had a programmed development (Certina type 25-651) that Certina previously utilized in their past DS models. That model was water safe up to 200m, had a screw down crown and a pleasant crosshair dial with painted lists. The width of the watch was around 40.5mm. Generally huge in those occasions obviously, we are discussing an apparatus watch. The watch is really uncommon these days and in the event that they do come available to be purchased they typically bring a chunk of change, as it were. Reedition this model is an extraordinary move for Certina, a brand officially known as a passage to mid-level inside the Swatch Group range that sold decent looking however for the most part present day timepieces.
The new DS PH200M is a genuine replacement of the vintage model with vintage-like look and detail. The case is just somewhat bigger at 42.8mm, actually water impervious to 200m. The case finish is brushed with a turning jumper bezel, screw down crown and case back. The back, coincidentally, has a similar turtle logo as the vintage model. Inside the DS PH200M is the Swatch Group most loved ETA Powermatic 80 development which has a date (at 3 o’clock) much the same as the first, and the celebrated 80 hours of force hold. The dial is lacquered dark and has a similar kind of crosshair theme as the vintage model, both in red. That is a similar shading the second hand is painted as well, while the first DS PH200M had a white second hand.
The watch comes in a pleasant defensive case-looking introduction box with an additional tie. You have a nato and a calfskin calf lash. DS isn’t just a sign coming from the vintage model. Certina actually utilizes a comparative innovation to shield the development from enormous stuns. DS innovation permits to the development to move inside the case if there should arise an occurrence of an effect, sort of like a suspension. In spite of the fact that the best thing about the DS PH200M isn’t all the above however the value point Certina will offer this model: the retail cost will be (German retail cost). The watch will be accessible around September this year. It is somewhat late yet it’s because of the way that Certina needs to recreate a similar DS innovation in the watch which isn’t common in the business nowadays it would take time.
