Rising to the surface from the dark ocean depths: the new DS Action Diver 43 mm by Certina is dressed entirely in black. And it certainly has depth – as a true diver’s watch, it’s water-resistant to 300 metres and is ideally equipped for any adventure – on land or underwater. In addition, the black stainless steel case, rotating bezel with matt black ceramic inlay, and a dark NATO strap turn this elegant timepiece into a real style statement.
The DS Action Diver is a favourite of Certina’s international fan club. The latest incarnation of this contemporary diver’s watch is particularly easy-going: dressed completely in black, it has a charming radiance. This is due in no small part to a generous coating of Super-LumiNova® on the hands and indexes, as well as on the markings of the unidirectional rotating bezel.
The bezel’s matt black ceramic ring serves as a perfect background for the dive time scale, whose numerals have an added touch of lacquer. A PVD coating gives the 43-mm stainless steel case its perfectly matched black colour. Another clear link to the sea comes from the NATO-look black fabric strap made from #tide ocean material®. This sustainable material is made using plastic fished from the ocean, and has a pin buckle closure with black PVD coating.
The DS Action Diver feels right at home in the water – in a Swiss alpine lake, while training in a swimming pool or snorkelling in the tropics. It meets the demanding requirements of ISO standard 6425, which makes it official: it’s a true diver’s watch. Key dive watch features include the unidirectional rotating bezel, the screw-down and protected crown, and the screw-in case back. Together with Certina’s proven DS (Double Security) concept, the watch offers exceptional water resistance up to 300 metres.
The all-black DS Action Diver is powered by a state-of-the-art Powermatic 80 movement with automatic winding and up to 80 hours of power reserve. Its innovative NivachronTM hairspring protects the watch against magnetic fields, a decisive advantage both above and under water – and an optimal basis for lasting precision, no matter where you take it.
The new DS Action Diver in black will be available starting in June 2023 from all authorized Certina retailers.
