The Certina DS Winner Chronograph was clearly designed to appeal to petrolheads.
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
The Certina DS Winner range was launched at Basel Watch fair in February 2008, so we estimate this watch was made in 2008 too.
The stand out feature on the Certina DS Winner is the distinctive bracelet. It is designed to look like the chain used on a motorbike, linking the watch to the many motorsport teams Certina have sponsored, and does this very well. The design also allows for it be to be very flexible, so getting comfortable isn’t a problem. The them is carried onto the watch too, with ‘rivets’ on the unidirectional bezel that look like the rivets holding a bike chain together, but these also help turn the bezel if you were wearing riding gloves. The DS range was launched all the way back in 1959, and the ‘Double Security’ was allowing the watch to be waterproof and shielded from shocks, so the motocross look of the watch suits the engineering too. There is a trick though – should you wish to change the appearance of the watch the drill lugs allow for any 20mm strap to be fitted. The movement is an ETA G10.212 movement with quick set date and a 60 minute chronograph, including 1/10ths of a second for those quick laps. A new battery will be fitted before the watch is sent out to you. Condition wise, this is in very good shape with no staining to the dial, no paint loss on the bezel and no signs of damage on the case or bracelet other than fine surface scratches. This is excellent value for a Swiss sports chronograph watch.
This watch will be supplied with an original Certina service case and our Certificate of Authenticity.
