The larger 43mm size range of Certina’s popular DS Action Diver Powematic 80 diver’s watches was renewed and got new color combinations.
The DS Action Diver Powermatic 80 range is available in two different sizes. The smaller 38mm collection quickly grew in popularity alongside the 43mm collection previously on the market. Now, Certina has updated her larger collection to the same design language as her “little brother,” while bringing in new color combinations, of which the most interesting is – by permission – the highly Bond-inspired titanium model.
DS Action Diver 43mm
The most significant improvements in the revamped DS Action Diver range include the replacement of the aluminum bezel with a more scratch-resistant ceramic bezel, and the upgrading of the spiral material of the 80-hour Powermatic 80 to an Nivachron-titanium alloy for better magnetism and temperature resistance. This has improved the reliability and accuracy of the watch.
The Certina DS Action Diver is a full-blooded diver’s watch with a bezel that only rotates counterclockwise, a screw-locking crown and a water resistance of 300 meters. The watch meets the international ISO 6425 standards for diver watches, which is also mentioned on the dial.
The physical dimensions of the watch have remained unchanged in the reform, i.e. the diameter without the crown is 43 millimeters and the thickness is 13.1 millimeters. The DS Action Divers have always adapted perfectly to the wrist, which is also the case with the new model.
The new 43mm DS Action Diver range was launched with seven models, the most interesting being the steel model with a moss-green bezel and dial, and the titanium model with a vintage-inspired color scheme. Both models fit well on a 17-centimeter wrist, with titanium being a notch more comfortable to feel due to its lightness.
The DS Action Diver range has long been Certina’s commercial success story, combining technical reliability and performance with a timeless design packaged in an attractive price tag for consumers.
The potential customer base of the collection expanded with the 38 mm watch models, bringing more trendy steel-gold color combinations to the collection. This trend is now shifting to larger watch models and is clearly driven by the manufacturer’s desire to offer consumers the same color combinations in two different sizes.
Deliveries of the new watch models will begin in February. The cheapest steel model is available for 915 euros and the most expensive full-titanium model costs 1,095 euros. So we can talk about a Swiss diver’s watch that is attractively priced for the consumer.
