The collaboration between the Swiss watch manufacturer Certina and the Swiss Sauber F1 Team started in 2005. To mark ten years of this unique Swiss-alliance, Certina is launching a limited edition version of its 1/100th seconds DS-2 chronograph.

Certina CEO Adrian Bosshard said:  “In Formula 1 as in watchmaking, the true power of timing comes through its unfailing accuracy. Inside the DS-2 Sauber F1 Team chronograph, a Swiss-Made ETA Precidrive quartz movement with 1/100th sec, 12 hours, 30 minutes and 60 seconds functions ensures that timing is never open to question. This cutting-edge movement offers the precision of a chronometer, in a sporty timepiece with design influences issued directly from the world of Formula 1.”

Indeed, the new DS-2 Sauber F1 Team Limited Edition timepiece, with its sporty attributes such as a carbon-surfaced dial and red-stitched rubber strap, now further celebrates this great partnership. The 41 mm 316L brushed-polished stainless-steel case wears a black aluminium tachymeter-scale bezel and a lightly rounded anti-reflective sapphire crystal. Against a black carbon dial, the nickelled HM hands carry a thin central line of Super-LumiNova, also applied to the indices, to enhance readability and underscore the sporty character of the DS-2.

The new DS-2 Sauber F1 Team Limited Edition is protected by the Certina DS Concept and is water-resistant up to a pressure of 100 m. Its case-back shows a mention of the ten years of Certina partnership with the Sauber F1 Team, as well as the timepiece’s unique, limited-edition unit production number. A rugged, handsome rubber strap with red stitching and a pin-clasp buckle complete the design of the chronograph.

Certina CEO Adrian Bosshard added: “The new DS-2 Sauber chronograph will be produced in a limited edition of only 2014 pieces, to highlight ten years of exciting collaboration between the two companies. It is delivered in a special watch display box with a certificate of authenticity.”

  • It is a shame to see the troubles Sauber F1 team had and has for the last 12 month. Not sure if this also hurts a bit Certina lately. Tissot is far more seen here in Malaysia maybe this has to do with their success in Moto JP racing? But have to say though this limited edition looks stunning.
