Certina DS Action Diver Sea Turtle Conservancy 60th Anniversary Watch Review
Wednesday - 01 May 2019
60 years is definitely worth celebrating especially with two anniversaries falling in the same year. Certina looks back to 1959 and all that has been accomplished in six decades with the launch of the DS Action Diver Sea Turtle Conservancy 60th Anniversary edition that is devoted to these incredible sea creatures. It was the year that the Sea Turtle Conservancy committed to protect sea turtle and their habitats and Certina released the DS Concept with its turtle symbol.
Wearing the colours and the logo of the animal welfare organisation, Certina are extremely proud of their partnership with the Sea Turtle Conservancy who make it their mission to guarantee the survival of the species. The sea-blue seconds hand and the ‘Diver’s Watch 300m’ lettering that sits underneath the name of the watch at 6 o’clock stand out against the black dial making a subtle reference to the organisation.
Turn the diver’s watch to find the turtle logo – an unmistakable nod to Sea Turtle Conservation group. Presented in a Certina DS turtle shell box with a matching key ring and anniversary badge, the maritime watch truly is a special piece that will help the work of the organisation with a percentage of the proceeds donated to the Sea Turtle Conservancy.
Not only is the robust diver’s watch designed with a conscience, it also meets the requirements of the IS0 6425 standard governing diver’s watches. The 60th anniversary edition is fitted with a unidirectional rotating bezel, coated generously with Super-LumiNova, features a screw down crown and case back and is water resistant to 300 metres – the perfect companion for exploring the magical underwater world.
The 43mm stainless steel case houses the automatic Powermatic 80 movement that features an impressive 80-hour power reserve and a date display at 3 o’clock. Simply fasten the stainless steel bracelet or black rubber strap with a fold-over clasp, two pushers and a diver extension to the wrist and dive right in.
