Certina steps up support for padel with a sporty, elegant and stylish new chronograph, the DS-7 Chrono Padel Edition by Marta Ortega. Designed in collaboration with Marta, the watch is powered by a Swiss made chronograph movement with Precidrive technology. The black dial presents precise sports timing results in a clear, easy-to-read format: watch dial and 1/10th of a second display are framed by a green green circle, and the hour/minute hands and indexes feature Super-LumiNova highlights.

The new DS-7 Chrono Padel Edition by Marta Ortega celebrates her achievements and the vibrant spirit of this fast-paced, popular and exciting sport. The black PVD coated stainless steel case frames a dial made from carbon fibre – the same material used in Marta's padel racquet. The padel connection is further highlighted by a subtle detail on the dial: a small padel tennis ball at 6 o’clock.

Certina CEO Marc Aellen commented, “We’re big fans of Marta and Padel, and it’s both a privilege and a pleasure to work with her. I’m really happy with the result of our collaboration. The new DS-7 Chrono Padel Edition by Marta Ortega pays homage to La Doctora’s drive, determination and extraordinary success. With her outgoing and dynamic personality, she’s a fantastic ambassador for Certina – and for Padel.” 

Marta herself had this to say: “I’m delighted to see the DS-7 Chrono Padel Edition with my name on it. I had a lot of fun working with the creative team at Certina. They’re so supportive and they care so much about excellence, I can’t think of a better partner. I’ll wear my new Certina with great pride.” 

Certina has been an enthusiastic supporter of Padel since 2021, and Marta Ortega is a brand ambassador since 2023. The 27-year-old Spanish star is one of the most exciting players in the game today. Currently ranked number 6, she is determined to take back the World Number 1 spot she first captured in 2019. Her relentless pursuit of excellence and teamwork embodies the core values shared by Certina, the players and Marta’s fans. And with her signature impressed on the back of the case, the renowned Swiss watchmaker and the padel star are set to make their mark on precision sports timekeeping and padel at once.

Sporty, stylish and unique, the DS-7 Chrono Padel Edition is certain to inspire fans and followers of Marta Ortega and Certina alike. The watch will be available from authorised retailers beginning in May, 2024.
