Certina DS-1 Himalaya Powermatic 80


The Watch

This very well designed Certina has it's core rooted in their history. In 1960 Certina equipped some of their watches for the first time with the DS Concept, that watch accompanied the climbers of the first successful decent of Dhaulagiri in the Himalayas. That is actually the mountain you see on the caseback of this watch, another nice touch! One the dial you have a two-tone white and rose gold dial, bold rose gold sword hands with contrast against the two tones of the dial perfectly making for easily legible reading.

This is all being powered by the infamous Powermatic 80 which is an automatic movement boasting an impressive 80 hour power reserve! When you consider how incredible this full package is and then you see the price, it really is a no-brainer!

Points of Mention

This watch was purchased in May 2017 and was part of a large collection in which it was rotated regularly, the watch does bare some minor signs of wear but nothing major at all. Overall I would say good condition. The watch comes with it's full box, paper and receipt, even the handtags are included.

Personal Note

This watch celebrates part of Certina's history and they celebrated it in good taste, they didn't plaster the front with images or words referring to the feat... They put a very nicely decorated photo of the mountain on the caseback, well played Certina!
