Rising to the surface from the dark ocean depths: the new DS Action Diver 43 mm by Certina is dressed entirely in black. And it certainly has depth – as a true diver's watch, it's water-resistant to 300 metres and is ideally equipped for any adventure – on land or underwater. In addition, the black stainless steel case, rotating bezel with matt black ceramic inlay, and a dark NATO strap turn this elegant timepiece into a real style statement.

The DS Action Diver is a favourite of Certina’s international fan club. The latest incarnation of this contemporary diver's watch is particularly easy-going: dressed completely in black, it has a charming radiance. This is due in no small part to a generous coating of Super-LumiNova® on the hands and indexes, as well as on the markings of the unidirectional rotating bezel. The bezel’s matt black ceramic ring serves as a perfect background for the dive time scale, whose numerals have an added touch of lacquer. A PVD coating gives the 43-mm stainless steel case its perfectly matched black colour. Another clear link to the sea comes from the NATO-look black fabric strap made from #tide ocean material®. This sustainable material is made using plastic fished from the ocean, and has a pin buckle closure with black PVD coating.

The DS Action Diver feels right at home in the water – in a Swiss alpine lake, while training in a swimming pool or snorkelling in the tropics. It meets the demanding requirements of ISO standard 6425, which makes it official: it’s a true diver’s watch. Key dive watch features include the unidirectional rotating bezel, the screw-down and protected crown, and the screw-in case back. Together with Certina’s proven DS (Double Security) concept, the watch offers exceptional water resistance up to 300 metres.

The all-black DS Action Diver is powered by a state-of-the-art Powermatic 80 movement with automatic winding and up to 80 hours of power reserve. Its innovative NivachronTM hairspring protects the watch against magnetic fields, a decisive advantage both above and under water – and an optimal basis for lasting precision, no matter where you take it.
