The energy and passion of motorsport has always been one of the main driving forces of CERTINA. With the launch of the new DS Podium Championship single-lap chronograph-racing version, Swiss watchmakers bring the precision and high-speed feel of professional racing to the wearer’s wrist. The real-time measurement accuracy of the watch reaches one-tenth of a second, and it is certified as a COSC precision astronomical table. The lap time function even makes friends who love motor sports excited. The racing version of the yellow and black design was first used in the ADAC GT Master Series.
For decades, Certina’s name has been closely related to motorsports-the brand not only actively participates in many world events, but also closely integrates watch culture with motorsports and shares research and development results. The new DS Podium Championship series lap chronograph-the launch of the racing version is exciting, excellent performance and outstanding performance. Equipped with precise Precidrive ™ quartz movement and certified by the COSC Precision Observatory.
The countdown function is tailored for racing timekeeping. For example, the lap time function makes it easy to measure and add track cycle time in a few simple steps. The total time is displayed on a 60-minute counter (located at 10 o’clock on the dial) to match the exact duration of the ADAC GT Masters. Based on the average lap time, the tenth of a second display (at the 2 o’clock position) can hold a two-minute real-time display.
The DS Podium Championship series single-lap chronograph and its 42mm black PVD case also show a very dynamic temperament. In particular, the racing version is wearing the official racing series colors and is committed to creating a partnership between Certina and ADAC GT Masters. The yellow lacquered speedometer scale contrasts with the black PVD-coated bezel. On the dial, the red and white hands and hour markers, combined with the yellow Super-LumiNova® luminous coating, create a strong visual contrast to ensure clear readability. The crown, ergonomic buttons, and smart black sports leather strap with stitching and trimmed yellow embellishment make the sport design style stronger.
