Few things in life are certain. Luckily, the Certina DS Action Diver Automatic Chronograph Watch is one timepiece you can count on for excellent quality, especially when under duress. Built to survive any adventure and look great at the same time, the DS Action Diver keeps its high-end watches at a low cost.
The DS Action Diver is a solid piece that opts for simplicity and solidarity in place of pomp and sparkle. Don’t mistake this watch for a boring piece meant for the boardroom: the Action Diver is designed for the extreme-sport adventurer who doesn’t waste time with frivolities.
That’s not to say that the watch doesn’t look great—in fact, the brushed steel case and polished links add a sleek look to the watch, hinting at the power of the mechanics it supports. The bold bezel and strong font choice for the indices all reinforce the idea that this watch can withstand whatever its wearer will throw at it.
With ETA 7753 automatic movement, chronograph and date functions, and precise mechanics that keep you running on the right time down to a millisecond, the DS action Diver will give other diving watches a run for their money.
No diving watch worth its salt is made to be anything but durable, but with 200m water resistance, an anti-reflective crystal dial window, folding buckle and diving extension, and Certina’s history of extreme reliability for the extreme adventurist, this watch more than lives up to its expectations.
There are also a lot of little details of the watch which make it a great choice for the intrepid explorer. All of the features of the watch are on the larger side, from the broad bezel to the buttons to the easy-to-read dial. The size makes the timepiece easy to handle for fingers stiffened by the cold of dives or encased in gloves.
The white, Superlminova markings making the timepiece incredibly easy to read even in dim areas, the protected screw-in crown which only adds to the watch’s durability, the large buttons which make the watch easy to manipulate in all situations…the list goes on.
Certina is so confident in its abilities to produce quality watches that will weather all the elements, that their commitment to that standard is etched into the dial, certifying that the watch has passed the high requirements to withstand the pressures for diving.
The Certina DS Action Diver Automatic Chronograph Watch is a polished, sturdy piece with unequaled reliability both in and out of the water.
