Since 1959, the DS, Double Security, Concept has symbolised the uncompromising requirements of the Certina sport watch brand. It makes the timepieces extraordinarily robust, adding another layer of safety and protection. The genius behind the DS concept lies in the elaborate security features that the brand have included. They have made sure that all parts of the watch are covered so that there is no weak links for potential damage etc. From the scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass to the complicated system of seals on the setting stem and crown. This makes the DS concept integral to all Certina watches, sporty, casual or elegant, all watches benefit from the added security. This philosophy of utmost reliability is reflected in the symbol of the turtle shell, Certina’s brand logo which can be found on each timepiece.
