Diving Season Is Here, What Better Choice Than A Turtle

Outstanding Achievements in Sixty Years: The STC Turtle Conservation Organization has been committed to protecting sea turtles since 1959. In the same year, Certina first introduced DS double insurance technology and the turtle logo. To celebrate this double anniversary, Swiss watchmakers have launched a watch made for these amazing marine creatures. As a true diving watch, the DSAction 60th Anniversary Special Edition of the STC dive watch complies with the ISO6425 standard. The watch uses the color scheme and logo of this animal protection organization (Certina is a partner of the organization), and will be launched in 2019 in a unique special edition packaging.

   The 60th Anniversary Special Edition of the Kinetic Series diver’s watch STC combines two major themes of Certina: outstanding sturdy timepiece masterpieces and unique turtle logos. Relying on a unidirectional rotating bezel, bright Super-LumiNova® fluorescent coating, screw-in crown, screw-down case back, and water resistance up to 30 bar, the watch can easily meet the ISO6425 standard for diving watches. Claim. This special edition watch is powered by the Powermatic80 automatic movement, which has a power of up to 80 hours and a 43 mm stainless steel case. The date display is located at 3 o’clock on the black dial. A black rubber strap with folding clasp, two buttons, and a diving telescoping device ensure that the wrist fits comfortably on and off the water.

   The sea blue seconds hand and the words ‘Diver’sWatch300m’ use the theme color of the STC Turtle Conservation Organization; the bottom cover is also decorated with the turtle logo of the organization. In 2019, when Certina and the STC Turtle Conservation Organization both celebrate the 60th anniversary, this diving watch will be launched in a unique special packaging: the watch box uses the famous CertinaDS turtle shell shape, with the same key ring And elegant anniversary badges. In addition, part of the sales proceeds of the watches will be donated to the STC Turtle Conservation Organization to support the important work of protecting sea turtles and their habitats.
