Certina DS Automatic GMT Change of order!
 
Ordered the Stainless steel model of this watch thinking it would be more versatile. The more I looked at it, the more I realized it looks similar to almost every other Stainless sports watch I own.

Decided on a Change up Pitch and cancelled the order and ordered this one instead! Costs a couple of hundred more, but the color combo is fairly versatile as well.

So red and black became orange and black, why a couple hundred more?

PVD case and the vintage-looking lume I guess, looks a lot different and unique then the stainless model.

Need something different looking, since nothing, ever, is going to be the Ultimate "Grail" watch that is going to end this sickness for me! :smile-thumb:

that red and black is pretty sharp.

hard to beat at $600 for an auto GMT from a brand like Certina.

And a true GMT at that. It has the hour jump hand that can move the time forward or backwards to change time zones to current location without having to hack the minute and seconds hands.

The Rolex GMT models have this feature, as does two of my Seiko Kinetic GMTs, and also.my Breitling Quartz Chronometer Chronograph, which isn't even a GMT!

Oh nice Chaz, just watched that video a few minutes ago that you
put up about the PVD version. :o But didn't realize you were actually
changing things up, and going for one ! :cool: ..Think it was a really great
decision.

Now you will have a watch that stands out in the collection, and in
a crowd sir ! A changed up big congratulations this time to you !!!

Cancelled this one as well, contacted Certina and they told me this watch, and the stainless model will not fit my 8" wrist :(

Why are they making bracelets smaller?
I took out so many links out of my helgray I swear it would fit an 8.5 inch wrist with all the links

The Swiss watch industry is catering to the Asian customer with smaller wrists.

Oh wow, sorry about that Chaz. ..At least now you can start looking for
the next one now, and one that you know will be, or fit just right ! :thumb::thumb:

But shortening bracelets? I can see shorter leather straps, but you can always take links out of bracelets if you have smaller wrists.
