Partnerships

Certina is passionate about sport, in particular motorsport. The brand has numerous partnerships which bear testimony to this dynamic passion.

Passion for sporting challenges, whether it be excellence in the art of watchmaking or top performance on the rack track, courses through Certina's veins. The brand has long been associated with motorsport, and has been a proud sponsor of the Wilvo Yamaha Official MXGP team since 2018.

With riders Jeremy Seewer, Arnaud Tonus and Shaun Simpson, the Dutch racing team is putting a remarkable trio of highly promising beacons of hope on the starting line. The MXGP seasons runs from March to October and comprises 20 races on demanding tracks around the globe, starting in Argentina and ending in America via Russia, Europe and Asia. The President of Certina, Adrian Bosshard, was once a professional motocross racer himself and follows the action with particular interest: "As a Swiss watch brand with a long history, we are doubly proud that two exceptionally talented Swiss men, Jeremy and Arnaud, have found their way to the highly professional Wilvo team."

It goes without saying that the brand is spurring the team on with more than just good wishes: The Certina logo can be found on the motorcycles and on the shoulders and gloves of the riders – as well as, of course, on the watches on their wrists.

The GT4 racing series celebrate sporty cars, high speeds and nail-biting duels. And the important thing about them is that the dreams these cars inspire are not so far removed from all reality. Certina is proud to have partnered the renowned motorsport promoter SRO Motorsports Group since 2017, at three GT4 championships with stations in the UK, Belgium, France, Spain, Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary and Italy.

The sheer range of different cars that take part in the GT4 European Series, in the FFSA GT Championship (its French counterpart) and in the GT4 Central European Cup is extraordinary. From prestigious luxury brands to series-produced sports coupés, tremendously varied interpretations of "Gran Turismo" come up against each other here.

The GT4 sprint races attract fans from all four corners of the world, who go wild for the racing action. And Certina is never far away. The brand logo is clear to see on the windscreens of the cars and during the victory ceremony, as well as in numerous other places. What's more, the fastest driver is presented with a Certina timepiece on the podium – for passion and precision are qualities shared by racing drivers and watchmakers alike.
