It was at the beginning of WWII when it was decided to change Certina's name, with a much larger body, easier to remember and a more "hook".

The term Certina does not come from the imagination, but is a deviation from the term certificate, whose meaning in Latin is true.

In 1959, the system, which still brings to life many Certina collections, DS system.

Review of the Swiss brand

In the world of Swiss watchmaking, Sertina has never been on the catwalk, but she intends to conquer it. Longines and Omega have become models that continue to offer very high quality and in this case, although Certina does the same, it will be returned along with Tissot, Hamilton or Mido, among others.

That doesn't orinan it's good or bad, it's just different. For this reason, many opinions arise when they reflect that the Certina brand may have lost some of its original essence.

In conjunction with quality of what it offers, absolutely nothing to blame, especially after the advent of Divers and different calibers.
