he chronograph and moon phase provide everyday functionality – and are real eye-catchers at the same time. In the new Certina DS-8 model, these complex features are presented clearly within a harmonious and attractive design.
Along with the central stop seconds, the watch has an integrated 12-hour and 60-minute chronograph counter at 2 o’clock, and a small seconds at 6 o’clock. At 10 o’clock the moon travels along its path across a finely drawn starry night sky. A date window at 4 o’clock, discreet and useful at once, completes the array.
The round 42mm stainless steel case sets stylish accents with satin-brushed and polished areas. Adding elegance and clarity is a dark blue dial with sunburst finish; dial versions in dark brown, black or a silver hue are also available. Extensive Super-LumiNova® coating on the elegant Arabic numerals and indexes as well as on the hour and minute hands deliver excellent legibility even in the dark. A black calfskin leather strap with crocodile embossing completes the look. Alternatively, a dark brown leather strap or comfortable five-row stainless steel strap are also available.
Inside the new DS-8 Chronograph Moon Phase is an advanced PrecidriveTM quartz movement, whose precision the independent Swiss test agency COSC has certified as that of a Chronometer. It is securely protected – up to a pressure of 10 bar – by the DS Double Security system, which also includes a scratch-resistant, antireflective sapphire crystal.
