Certina once again brought the best technology and superb design combined with the brand’s tradition since 1888. The new DS Trust watch demonstrates Certina’s sophisticated style and true classic elegance. Remarkable, this retro-looking gentlemen’s wristwatch can be worn with almost any outfit.
Its distinctive square case measures 34 x 34 mm, with the thickness of only 8.6 mm. It is made either of the top-grade 316L stainless steel, or high-quality titanium, and it is accompanied to the matching bracelet with a safety clasp. The case construction incorporates a protected crown, set on its left side. The total weight of this watch is 135 grams.
This model comes with an amazing and aesthetically pleasing dial which features enlarged luminescent Arabic numerals 3, 9 and 12, as well as silver hour and minute indexes, and hands also filled with luminous materials. There is also a date window, at the 6 o’clock position. The dial is protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with an antireflective coating, and this watch has a famous DS (Double Security) protection system, as well. Certina’s DS concept provides high resistance against shocks and water resistance to 100 meters (330 feet), among other features.
The accuracy and reliability of this watch are insured with the inclusion of a Swiss-made Quartz movement.
There are four variations of the model. Models C019.510.11.057.00 and C019.510.11.037.00 are stainless steel versions and they have two-tone bracelets. There is a choice between a black or a silver dial.
The next model, with the referent number C019.510.22.037.00, has a yellow PVD on its bezel, as well as on the central segment of the bracelet. It features the matching indices, HM hands and numerals, and an elegant silver dial. The fourth variation is a titanium watch, with a two-tone bracelet, a nickelled dial and silvered numerals, hands and indices (its referent number is C019.510.44.087.00). The last one is a little bit expensive (approximately $750), while the stainless steel versions are more affordable. These watches from the Gent Quartz Collection are available for about $635 each.
