This year, in Basel, a Swiss watch manufacturer, Certina, fascinates public with the new DS Spel Lady watch, created specially for a modern woman with an active lifestyle. Featuring 40 Top Wesselton diamonds, it definitely gives an impression of elegance and luxury. The new timepiece brings an earlier model up to date.
A feminine case, with the diameter of only 30 mm, is crafted from 316L stainless steel, and I must say that brushed and polished steel elements come together in gorgeous contrasts. A round case is a nice change in comparison to square cases of the previous watches from the DS Spel Line. The new watch is adorned with 40 Top Wesselton diamonds set on a stunning bezel, weighing 0.459 carats in all. On the left side of the dial, there is a winding crown. A lovely detailed bracelet flows outward from the tender contours of the charming watch case and it is safely joined by a butterfly clasp with two push buttons. The Swiss watchmaker also presented a model of the new DS Spel Lady without diamonds and with an additional two tone (yellow PVD) detailing on the central segments of the bracelet.
A mother-of-pearl dial is protected by a sapphire crystal and includes hour and minute hands, and triangular facetted indices. Certina also offers two versions of the dial. The first version has the yellow PVD-treated indices, while the second one features black nickelled indices. Arabic numeral 12 is set at the top of the dial, while a date window, at the 6 o’clock position, gives a perfect balance. Under 12 o’clock, there is a black lettering “Certina” and “1888” revealing the year when brothers, Adolf and Alfred Kurth, started to produce watch movements, in a Swiss town, Grenchen.
DS Spel Lady’s watch is powered by an efficient and reliable, Swiss made ETA 956.412 quartz movement. According to a manufacturer, this timepiece from the Lady Quartz Collection guarantees water resistance to 100 meters (33 ft).
With its stylish design and charming elements, this sophisticated piece of jewelry will certainly find a place in a modern female timepiece collection.
