This current model Cerina DS Podium is still on sale at £510.  This example is less than half of that price.  Model reference C001.639.11.057.00

HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?

While this watch does have the box and papers, the paperwork was not completed with the date of sale (they also got the model number and reference number the wrong way round).  However we have a receipt for a new battery on December 2018, and presuming the original battery lasted two years we think this watch was made circa 2016.

CONDITION

The DS range for Certina has been in their catalogues since 1959, and this DS Podium is a high specification watch.  The case is stainless steel, the crystal sapphire.  The movement is a Swiss ETA, and it has both a 12 hour chronograph as well as a second time zone dial.  The bracelet is solid, and the whole watch was designed to be waterproof to 100m when new.  Stylistically it works too – the sub dials are at different levels, and the GMT dial at 10 is much deeper than the dial.  This depth makes the dial more interesting.  The hands and hour markers are lumed, but this is not as strong as say a Seiko.  The bracelet has been cleaned on our ultrasonic bath, and the battery will be renewed before it is sent out to you.

This watch will be supplied with the original presentation box, papers and our Certificate of Authenticity.
