Certina DS PH200M C036.407.16.050.00
Robust automatic watch with leather and textile strap / 20 ATM
Certina DS PH200M - Back to the future
With the DS PH200M presented at Baselworld 2018, the Swiss watch brand Certina is reviving a historical model that has lost none of its relevance. The DS PH200M seamlessly builds on the timeless design of its predecessor and combines it with a powerful automatic caliber of the latest generation. Certina has always enjoyed getting to the bottom of things - not only in terms of precision and durability, but also in exploring the oceans. In the 1960s and 1970s, Certina demonstrated the robustness of its timepieces in a series of high-profile research projects and expeditions. These journeys took the watches not only to dizzying heights, but also to the bottom of the sea. This experience inspired the brand to develop a new timepiece dedicated to life underwater: the DS PH200M.
Its 42.8 mm diameter stainless steel case features a graduated, unidirectional rotating black bezel. It frames a black dial from which SuperLumiNova-coated hands and indices stand out perfectly even in the dark. As before, the back of the watch features a relief of a turtle, the Certina brand symbol. The model is rounded off by a supple black/grey NATO textile strap with a pin buckle and, for elegant use, a brown calfskin strap. The similarities with the original are more than superficial: like its predecessor, the new DS PH200M features the original DS concept from the 1960s. Unlike modern Certina watches, a curved Hesalit box glass with one-sided anti-reflective coating and scratch-resistant NEX Scratchguard coating as well as a separate suspension ring ensure double security - and water resistance up to 20 bar. The precision and mileage of the mechanical timepiece are still decidedly contemporary. An innovative Powermatic 80 caliber ensures accuracy and a power reserve of 80 hours. The new, old DS PH200M bows to the past and at the same time looks resolutely into the future!
