Precidrive – This innovative technology ensures the utmost accuracy at Certina. The timepieces with Precidriveâ„c quartz movements achieve real chronometer precision. With a rate deviation of +/-10 seconds per year, making it 10 time more accurate than traditional quartz timepieces. DS Concept - Certina’s international reputation as a sports brand has been founded on the DS Concept since 1959. This system makes the watches extraordinarily robust. The secret of this Double Security (DS) system lies in the elaborate security features – scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, a complicated system of seals protecting the stem and crown, and a reinforced case back.

Magpie | Mon 30th April 2018 |

This rather magnificent timepiece has a muscular, masculine look about it, reassuringly weighty without being overly chunky and cumbersome the term “Understated elegance” comes to mind. The watch has a very clear dial with red detail picked out on the sweep, second hand. I’m especially impressed with the push button operation on the clasp of the sturdy, stainless steel bracelet. Forgive me for using my favourite phrase yet again, but the item really does “ooze” quality and a very high degree of craftsmanship. Logos and symbols have been kept discrete...it’s a real looker, yet built robustly enough to withstand pressures down to 300 meters. I’m delighted with my purchase.

The Certina DS Action Precidive is a great looking, high-quality watch, designed with serious divers in mind, but equally suitable for other sports, casual wear or more formal occasions. In other words, it’s a great all-rounder and I highly recommend it.

THE BRAND:

Certina wasn’t a brand I was very familiar with, but it’s a Swiss maker with a long heritage. The brand is currently part of the Swatch group one of its ‘middle range’ offerings, alongside Tissot and Hamilton, but the company’s origins date as a movement manufacturer date back to the 19th century. They’ve been making wristwatches since the 1930s, and their DS line of rugged sports watches date to the late 1950s. I love the company’s turtle logo which is supposed to symbolise their tough nature.

THE LOOK:

The watch has a clean, minimalist look similar to many of the classic diving watches. The face is jet black, with large clear markers, and features a black bezel. There is no logo on the face the company’s turtle symbol – symbolising the watches’ tough nature – features on the back of the case, instead there is text saying ‘Certina 1888’ in a stylish modern font. There is smaller text on the bottom half of the face which reads “DS Action Precidive 300m/1000ft”, but none of this interferes with clarity or readability. The hands are simply designed, with a splash of red on the second hand. There is lume on the hour indicators, the ends of the hour and minute hands and a dot on the second hand. The luminosity is reasonably good, and glows slightly aqua-green. The date dial replaces the 3 o’clock marker and features a black numeral on a white background. The bracelet is stainless steel and is finished to a high standard.

COMFORT AND FIT:

The watch is very comfortable to wear, and the bracelet Is easily adjustable. It feels nice and heavy on the wrist, though you get used to this very quickly. I’ve taken it out on long runs and have found it very comfortable. Before I got the watch, I was a bit worried that it might be too small for my wrist. The case is around 41mm, but the large bevel makes the face look a bit smaller. I usually prefer larger watches, and I thought this might look a bit too small. It still looks a little smaller than the watches I would usually prefer, but I’ve grown to like the size there is an automatic version which is bigger, but it is a bit more expensive.

TECHNICAL & QUALITY:

The watch has a really solid and high-quality feel. For serious divers, the watch is internationally certified ISO 6425, which means it has passed a range of tests to ensure its reliability and utility as a diving watch, including resistance to water, shock, magnetism and corrosion as well as strength testing. The DS in the watch’s name stands for Double Security, a range of features to enhance the watches water resistance and durability. It is water resistant to 30 bar roughly equivalent to 300m, which is standard for a good modern dive watch. It has a quartz movement, with a Swiss-made ETA F07.411 calibre found in a lot of watches in this price range, which is listed as being accurate to +/- 10 seconds a year. The “glass” is scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. The bracelet is high quality stainless steel and features a push-button clasp and a diver’s extension for wearing over wetsuits. It can be easily adjusted to fit most wrist sizes. The unidirectional bevel is very firm and well-made, though it can be slightly hard to move. One negative for me was that the second hand doesn’t line up exactly with the indicators on the watch face. The watch comes with a 2-year warranty.

PRESENTATION BOX:

The watch comes in a high-quality and stylish presentation box – black on the exterior with a cream interior.

OVERALL:

This is a great watch. It’s really well built, stylish, comfortable to wear and should be robust enough to take a few knocks. Overall, this makes it just as suitable for outdoor activities as for the office. It has a clean, clear design which is almost military in look and for 007 fans, it’s quite similar in look to the military-style diving watches that have featured in the James Bond films.

A quality watch that looks much better in the flesh. The dial is set off by the large round hour markers and the red second hand. The bracelet feels quality and allows fine adjustment on the clasp. I looked long and hard for a robust day to day watch which was accurate and smart and I eventually found it in the Certins DS
