The fascinating underwater world poses significant challenges for people and materials. The new DS Super PH500M presents itself as a reliable companion who is in its element everywhere. Like you Sister model from 2020, it confidently combines maximum functionality with sporty style. It scores with a black dial and an innovative NATO strap made of #tide ocean material® based on recycled plastics. Its anti-magnetic Nivachron (TM) spiral spring makes the mechanical high-performance diver’s watch the ideal partner on land, just like for any underwater mission.
The DS Super PH500M models go back to a timepiece from the 1960s that stood out for its reliability in the well-known Tektite I underwater research project. The latest addition to the family remains true to its roots in many ways. The black aluminum bezel, for example, can only be turned on one side by applying slight pressure, which avoids accidentally changing the dive time. In general, safety is particularly important with this model. The watch was developed with divers for divers, meets all the requirements of ISO 6425 and is also water-resistant to 500 m.
But the DS Super PH500M also cuts an extremely good figure on firm ground. The new version comes entirely in black, with a diameter of 43 mm, a screwed back, screwed crown and anti-reflective sapphire crystal. Generous coating with luminous material ensures clarity on the black dial. The black and gray NATO strap is made of #tide ocean material®, a pioneering textile based on recycled plastic waste that was fished from the sea.
A modern Powermatic 80 caliber strikes inside the watch. The automatic movement has a proud power reserve of up to 80 hours, and thanks to its Nivachron (TM) spiral spring it is insensitive to magnetic fields – a decisive advantage in everyday life such as diving, as the magnetic attraction can seriously impair the accuracy of a mechanical watch. The classic DS concept from Certina is supplemented by a very modern security measure.
