Certina DS-2 Chronograph Watch

Certina DS-2 Chronograph Watch

Few quartz chronographs can boast the absolute precision of a chronometer (+/- 10 sec. a year). The DS-2 Chronograph belongs to this elite circle, thanks to its ETA PRECIDRIVE movement which displays time with a precision of 1/100th of a second. A watch cut out for this level of performance demands a design to match, and the DS-2 Chronograph clearly belongs to a world of sporting exploits, and motor sports in particular.
