Certina has just released a rather lovely new version of their 2018, DS PH200M, which will be available to buy from the fall of this year.
The watch is based on a 42.8mm Stainless steel case – this has been beautifully enhanced with a convex rotational diver’s bezel in dark blue ceramic with a gold-accented dive-time scale.
In addition to the dark blue bezel inlay, there is a dark blue dial, high-lighted with Super-LumiNova on its hours and hands, and once again on the bezel.
Sapphire crystals are present front and back, while the movement features an anti-magnetic Nivachron™ balance spring for improved resistance.
Along with the traditional DS Concept, the screw-down crown and scratch-resistant Sapphire crystals protecting the front and back of the watch ensure water-resistance up to 200m.
While the see-through case-back affords a view of the Powermatic 80 (ETA Powermatic 80.611) automatic movement –
with said Nivachron™ balance spring making it impervious to magnetic fields and exceptionally resistant to shocks and changes in temperature.
The watch (ref. C036.407.18.040.000) comes on a gray-blue NATO strap, priced 880CHF.
