I noticed there hasn't been much written up on this particular piece so id thought id post up some first impressions. Not really a diver but i thought it appropriate to post here
It was a toss up between the Certina Auto Action diver and the DS First, but im glad I ended up with this. Has a load of great features for the price (approx USD550). Made the purchase through horademoda and I found the service friendly and quick!
It's always a struggle trying to find suitable watches for my twig like wrist. At 40mm, the watch wears very slightly larger than the figures suggest but it is comfortable as hell, especially on the stainless steel bracelet. As stated in another thread, this watch is definitely "a tool watch in a sexy disguise". The DS First ticks all the features i was looking for in a watch:
-Solid Stainless Steel bracelet with SEL
-Sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating
-Automatic ETA 2836
-Screwed-down crown + DS (Double Security feature of Certina)
It is not exactly a Sinn 556 (which i miss terribly) but i am well happy with this and can see this as a great daily given its versatility. Pictures:
