Default Certina DS Automatic GMT

Happened to be cruising through Jomashop and some Youtube videos of new watch releases and found this gem from Certina.

The watch utilizes the new ETA Powermatic 80 with GMT function. Most ETA GMTs movements are a turn off to me due to their lack of Hour Jump hand, meaning you have to hack the watch to reset it to local time.

Surprisingly looking at a video of another version of this watch, the Hour hand does jump just like on the Rolex GMT movements. A download of the instruction manual confirms this as well!

This watch is a steal at $595 at Jomashop, couldn’t pass up that price, considering all the below features and the fact I already own a Certina DS Action quartz Chronometer and the case, fit and finish is the level of a $4K watch.

Shipping is in 2 or 3 weeks and the price coincides with how much money I won at the Casino last night!




This dude looks like he has a 5” wrist so the watch if wearing super big.



Heres video of it!
