Expertise

Certina watches can do more than just look good. Our watchmakers pay just as much attention to technical finesse, excellent workmanship and the highest precision as they do to a harmonious sporting design.

  • Precidrive™

    The name of an innovative technology which ensures the utmost accuracy at Certina. The timepieces with Precidrive™ quartz movements achieve real chronometer precision. With a rate deviation of +/-10 seconds per year, a Precidrive™ timepiece is around eight to ten times more accurate than traditional quartz timepieces.

  • 1/10th of a second in real time

    Each chronograph is equipped with the tenth of a second feature. Selected Certina models visibly depict the tenth of a second in real time at 2 o'clock on the auxiliary dial – with ten increments per second. It is displayed when you press the related push-button, and stops automatically after one minute, while the chronograph continues to measure the time accurately down to a tenth of a second.

  • 1/100th of a second in real time

    The hundredth of a second measurement is not only an extremely rare display, it also ensures that real time is shown on the dial. On Certina's models, the hundredth of a second is displayed in real time by a coloured hand, while a second central hand simultaneously counts the regular stop second. The coloured hand stops automatically after one minute to save energy – but the chronograph continues to measure the time accurately down to a hundredth of a second.

  • Powermatic 80

    In addition to being highly accurate, the innovative Powermatic 80 automatic movement has a power reserve of up to 80 hours – almost twice as long as comparable models. This means that a fully wound watch left unworn for three days – for example, over the weekend – will still not need resetting, as the Powermatic 80 mechanism continues to keep time.
