Like hardly any other brand Certina is associated with sports and looks back on a 130 years tradition. Even though modern technologies and requirements have meanwhile changed the character of watchmaking forever, many of its fundamental values have remained. Consequently, Certina is still dedicated with a genuine passion to the high art of measuring time. With the DS (“Double Security”) concept introduced in 1959, Certina achieved a great and long-lasting success. Be it an elegant or a very sporty Certina, all of them are characterized by extremely high resistance.
