Rating Breakdown (Average rating: 5 / 5)

Rating: Excellent (5 / 5)
A very brief overview of Certina, the brand. Certina is the official timekeeper for the WRC, and is part of the Swatch Watch group which also own Omega and Longines. Swatch Watch group also own the ETA movements which are outsourced to other watch manufacturers. So Certina the watch brand has heritage and is made by a credible company.
The Certina DS Podium looks an impressive watch, echoing the more expensive Tag Monaco. The case is stainless steal with polished bezel and brushed case. A window on the back of the watchs case shows the ETA 7750 movement, which is nicely finished. The bezel is numbered allowing the wearer to measure speed tachymeter. The chronograph buttons have a good solid feel and offer a decent amount of resistance, limiting the chance of the chronograph being activated unintentionally.
The Ds Podium is a decent sized watch, sitting quite proud of the wrist. Although heavier than other watches I have owned, it is by no means an uncomfortable watch to wear.
The Certina DS Podium is designed as a sports watch, but I feel it just as well suited as smart or dress watch. Personally I think the watch is to nice to be worn as sport watch.
The dial is easy to read, but the luminova is not super bright nor long lasting. My only other gripe is with the stiff watch strap. The clasp only allowed me to fasten the watch tight against my wrist or loose enough that it would move around on the wrist. I purchased a leather strap with red stitching and the standard buckle and loop as a replacement.
The Certina DS Podium is a nicely designed watch that is not overtly in your face. It is however a watch that will receive a subtle glance or query from watch fans or people who just appreciated good design. I am really very pleased with this watch.
