Certina is a Swiss made brand has since been a classic in the Swiss watch world. The brand has made multiple classics during their time, the most technically advanced one is by far the DS series. DS stands for double security. Throughout the whole history of Certina Swiss quality for a reasonable price point has always been a key point for the brand.
Early 70's hand wound Certina DS 2, a true tool watch by heart. Beefy case, a shock absorber and a reliable movement. Great classic vintage watch with an extraordinary look. The case is beefy but due to the hand wound movement is the case rather slim compared to the automatic brother. This enhances the wearability of the watch.
Running on a freshly serviced hand wound movement with a date. A reliable Swiss movement that can easily be maintained.

Patina spots on the dial
White hour and minute hand, red detail in the seconds hand
