    Thoughts on Certina .

    I'm a newbie when it comes to watches. I have a Tissot PRC 200 Chrono Automatic rubber strap, Movado Series 800 Chrono leather strap and a Luminox Navy Seal rubber strap.
    I've been thinking about getting a diver... Of course if I could afford it I'd get a Tudor Pelagos (but I can't).... What is everyone's thoughts on the Certina Automatic DS Action Diver Titanium?

    I have two DS action divers though neither are the titanium version. Great watches at a solid price point. Given my bad watch habit, they are one of roughly 30 watches in the rotation so don't get as much wrist time as they deserve! They are on the smaller end of my watch spectrum but that makes them perfect for when I wear a long sleeve shirt as they will fit under the cuff.

    Lots of You-Tube reviews. Great bang for your buck brand, kinda flying under the radar at the moment.

    From what I have read, Certina is drawing from what they did best in the past and that was making great dive watches that were both affordable and tough. The Certina Automatic DS Action Diver Titanium is a great looking watch. In case you have not seen Fratello's article on the said watch, below is the link:

    The only gripe I have about Certina is that I wish they were distributed in North America (in particular Canada) through authorized dealers.

    Thank you I will definitely read that article.
    And you're right, they don't list North America on their dealer search.
    Are Jomashop and World of Watches reputable online retailers?

    Both are grey market dealers. Another alternative is Chrono24 in which authorized dealers will list their wares as well. Whichever route you choose, I would do due diligence prior to making a purchase.
