Certina: Swiss quality with a real sporting spirit – since 1888
Certina takes sportiness seriously. As well as being reflected in the uncompromisingly attractive appearance of its timepieces, for Certina watches, sportiness is all about quality and DNA.
Sport is an amazing way to test your own performance – and this holds true for both people and timepieces. In this respect, Certina watches have traditionally proven themselves to be real top athletes. Because their distinctive sporting spirit permeates every aspect of their design, technology and the brand philosophy. At Certina, sportiness is more than simply a superficial facade. It is all about vitality, progress, reliability and top performance – and represents a basic attitude.
To meet the brand's high demands, all Certina timepieces must comply with stringent quality criteria. These are reflected in the uncompromisingly robust DS concept, first introduced by the brand in 1959 and standing for "Double Security". These comprehensive safeguards in the construction of each individual Certina women's or men's watch, across all collections, are responsible for the legendary robustness and reliability of all of the brand's models.
All Certina watches also bear the "Swiss Made" seal of origin and quality that proves them to be authentic representatives of Swiss watchmaking craftsmanship. Based in Switzerland since 1888, the brand is committed to its historical and geographical roots.
As well as a great respect for tradition, the sports watch brand is also driven by a good measure of curiosity about the watchmaking craft of the future, which it is already playing an active role in shaping. With technical innovations, outstanding movements and functions, Certina causes a sensation time and again. The brand has very deliberately chosen to focus on the different disciplines of modern chronometry. The collection includes watches for women and men, quartz and mechanical models, all brimming with their own individual character - from sporty to a fashionable urban look, from timelessly classic to maritime.
However, Certina's sporting spirit has also made it a constant feature on the world's race tracks and on the wrists of elite top athletes. And its charismatic partners and friends have always been very close to the Swiss sports watchmaking brand's heart. After all, they understand exactly what drives the Certina team: a sporting spirit engaged on a constant quest for new top performance.
