Innovative
today as in the past
60 years
of DS Concept

Since 1959 the DS Concept has stood for maximum resistance. For sixty years we have made every effort to make watches capable of meeting all of life’s demands. Over the years the concept of Double Security has repeatedly been adapted to reflect the latest technical standards.

The DS concept has literally taken Certina to unprecedented heights. Thanks to their remarkable resistance, our timepieces have repeatedly found their way onto the wrists of daring mountaineers and deep-sea divers. Through sophisticated research projects and extreme stress tests, the DS concept has consistently proven itself anew – making it the ideal companion for everyday adventures in the modern world.

The DS-1 Big Date 60th Anniversary steps into the limelight with an innovative Powermatic 80 Caliber fitted with a paramagnetic Nivachron™ balance spring.
