The DS-8 chronograph from Certina adds a new complication indicating the mean duration of the cycle and quarters of the moon. So as to position this function at 10 o’clock, the high-precision PrecidriveTM movement offers an original layout of the chronograph counters. While the 12-hour display appears through an aperture inside the 60-minute counter, 60-seconds timing is done by a central sweep-seconds hand.
These indications are attractively displayed on a sunburst satin-brushed anthracite dial also featuring a small seconds subdial. The Chronographe DS-8 Phase de Lune features a 41 mm diameter and includes Certina’s famous DS (Double Safety) concept. It’s Certina’s system for the protection of the watch movement against all negative external influences, such as pressure, temperature, moisture, shock and dust.
All DS watches are characterized by strong technological advantages to insure flawless operation and precision. The movement is protected by thick sapphire crystal, while the stem and crown is equipped with O-ring seals that guarantee absolute water-resistance. Additionally, DS watches feature specially-reinforced cases and back structures.
