Extremely inspired and totally outstandingBASELWORLD 2013: The CERTINA DS Eagle Chronograph
The new DS Eagle is a timepiece for watch lovers with a taste for the unique and unusual. With a broad face and solid screwed-on bezel with beautiful carbon-fiber detailing, the chronograph is ready for any extreme situation, in sport or everyday life.
Water resistant up to a pressure of 20bar (200m), it is equipped with a textured screw-fastened black rubber strap and red-trimmed push-buttons—very sporty indeed, and its 24h GMT second time-zone will help to keep your work and travel schedule in perfect time.
The DS Eagle Chronograph brings extreme-sport inspiration and finish to a timepiece with a fantastic quality/price ratio. Contrasting brushed and polished surfaces in 316L stainless steel, and racing-inspired semi-circular carbon inserts on its screwed-on bezel give it a distinctly modern, sporty character. Behind the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflection coating on both faces, the 12-hour, 60-minute and 60-second chronograph counters are bold and clear against the dial's textured finish, thanks to smart contrasts of red and white against black. All hands other than the central seconds indicator are skeletonised for a stylish design touch, and a large date window is ideally placed at 6 o'clock.
Legibility is further enhanced by generous amounts of Superluminova on the large indices and HM hands and in the arrowheads added to both the 24h and the central seconds hand. Black PVD-coated screwed-on side guards neatly frame the design, while also providing additional protection, especially for the red-trimmed push-buttons and screw-in crown—monogrammed with the letters 'DS' to highlight the use of the Double Security Concept. The screw-on case-back brings a further reminder of the DS Eagle's exceptional reliability and water resistance up to a pressure of 20 bar (200m), with the display of the CERTINA turtle logo, a longstanding symbol of great water resistance, robustness and longevity. Black PVD-coated screws fasten a textured, contoured black rubber strap and its sturdy pin-clasp buckle to the beautifully sculptured case.
The DS Eagle Chronograph comes in special packaging, and comes in two additional versions: an all-black PVD-coated model and a two-tone black/rose-gold PVD-coated model, both with a black rubber strap.
