The extremely thin dial of this watch is lightly domed. In this way it takes up the classic lines of historic models from the 1960s and gives the modern timepieces an elegant retro touch.
Powermatic 80 Movement
Power reserve is the time a fully wound mechanical watch runs until it stops - usually between 38 and 42 hours. The Powermatic 80 calibre makes a power reserve of up to 80 hours possible! So you can leave this watch for up to three days before having to set it anew - if you can do without it for that long...
Great and beautiful
Watch straps made from #tide ocean material® not only look great and are very robust, they also serve a good cause: The high-quality yarn that makes up this textile strap started its life as plastic waste fished from the oceans.
The "Himalaya Special Edition" honours one of the most significant expeditions of its time: the successful first ascent of the Dhaulagiri in 1960 - accompanied by extremely robust Certina watches. The special model features an engraving of the mountain panorama with the inscription "Dhaulagiri, 8167 m, 1960", which can be admired through the transparent case back.
The beating heart of this model is a Powermatic calibre with an entirely new balance spring made of Nivachron(TM). This innovative material has been developed to increase resistance to magnetic fields. The Swiss-Made balance spring has a titanium base and is therefore exceptionally resistant to temperature variations and incredibly shock-resistant.
