50 Brands of Basel: Certina

Certina DS8 Chrono Moonphase rose

Certina’s sartorially sound DS8 Chronograph Moon Phase gets an even more elegant suit of armour in time for this year’s Baselworld.

Dressed in a new rose gold PVD coating, Certina’s feature-packed chronograph is more of a crossover watch than ever before. Thanks to its thermo compensated Precidrive quartz movement the DS8 Chronograph Moon Phase is as well-equipped to time a sporting event as it is to wear to a special occasion.

The heady combination of rose gold-tone 42mm case, black sunray dial and croc-finish leather strap offers a glamorous choice.

Certina has also imbued the DS8 Chronograph Moon Phase with an innovative method of displaying information to its owner with numerical 12-hour chrono window set within the 60-minute counter and self-contained moon phase indicator opposite.

The DS8 Chronograph Moon Phase is also equipped with sapphire crystal glass, with anti-reflective coating on both sides. The watch is water resistant to 100m and the caseback is stamped with Certina’s historic turtle logo.
