Certina Chronographe DS-8 Phase de Lune Quartz Quartz watches / Swiss Watches

Officially presented during Baselworld 2015 last March, the new Certina Chronographe DS-8 Phase de Lune is a perfect example of a dressy complication watch that somehow manages to combine into a single package an almost stunning exterior, a reliable quartz chronograph movement that, for all things practical blows out of the water almost all advanced electric mechanisms currently available on the market, while spicing all up with a very affordable price.

The watchmakers from Europe and Japan, too, managed to introduce a number of great watches, although there was nothing truly revolutionary neither in terms of design, nor technical characteristics (here I am talking about mass-produced models, not some ultra-expensive one-offs).

Certina DS1 “Double Security” Automatic Swiss Watches

Even though the new Certina DS1 "Double Security" Automatic (ref. C006.407.16.088.00) watch offers pretty generic design, it looks like a nice entry-level model for those high-school graduates still dreaming about their first dress watch with the legendary "Swiss Made" inscription on the dial, which is said to be adding at least +10 to mating abilities and +25 to personal charisma.

Certina DS Podium Ole Einar Bjorndalen GMT Quartz Chronograph Quartz watches / Swiss Watches

The Swiss watchmaking brand Certina has recently presented a limited edition version of its fairly fresh DS Podium quartz watch. Called Certina DS Podium Ole Einar Bjorndalen GMT Chronograph (ref. C001.639.21.057.10), the new timekeeper honors "the outstanding achievements and career" of Ole Einar Bjorndalen, a Norwegian professional biathlete who, according to Wikipedia (not the best source, I know,) won his first title in 1992 at the junior world championships.
