This Certina New Art is just the right combination of funky 1970’s stainless steel case, and conservative dial that can be worn everyday.
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
From the serial number on the case back we can accurately date this watch to being in 1970.
Certina made watches in a range of materials, including plating, but this is the more desirable stainless steel version. The unusual case design sits well on the wrist, helped by the slim case and recessed crown. The dial is clean, but unusually has black hour markers at 4 and 10, whereas the rest are a bronze colour. The black also features on the hands, so maybe this was a styling thing? If you know more please contact us and explain. The acrylic crystal has been polished, and the leather strap is new. Inside the case is an calibre 25-66 manual wind movement, which is running well and like most Certina watches is beautifully finished.
This New Art is one of the last stainless steel Swiss watches with an in-house movement which was built for quality, and that is still affordable to a lot of people. A comparable Omega would be double the money, but not double the quality.
This watch will be supplied with our branded presentation box and our Certificate of Authenticity.
