In 1959, Certina introduced the DS series. Then in 1968, the second generation DS-2 of the DS was also born. There are two versions of the DS-2. 200 meters and 500 meters, and successfully completed two underwater tests. The DSPH200M in this series was first produced in 1967, at the time it was a diving watch. This year coincides with the 130th anniversary of Certina’s birth. Taking this opportunity, the brand aimed at watch fans who love replica diving watches, and launched the DSPH200M replica watches to pay tribute to this history. Let’s enjoy this new replica dive watch together. (Watch model: C036.407.16.050.00)
On the overall model, the brand has not made a major change. From the overall design of the dial, the hands, the bezel and even the crown look almost the same as the previous model, making the charm of the original model, It’s just that the size of the new model has become larger in comparison. The new model is similar to the previous model in that it also uses the original DS double insurance technology of the 1960s and is loyal to the original model.
At the same time, Certina also rejuvenated this timepiece: it uses a round box synthetic crystal watch, instead of the commonly used sapphire glass, and is equipped with a separate assembly ring with a NEX Scratchguard anti-scratch coating. Double security guarantee. The freshman not only floats on the surface, but also transforms the heart. It is equipped with a new Powermatic80 movement, which improves the performance of the watch.

The case diameter is 42.8 mm, made of stainless steel, and equipped with a black unidirectional rotating bezel with graduations. The case is polished by a brushing process to create an exclusive metal texture.
The stainless steel crown is engraved with the brand’s logo and the non-slip texture design surrounds it, which not only highlights the brand’s exclusive aesthetic style, but also facilitates time adjustment.
Although this new watch is a replica, the brand also incorporates modern elements, so it will not deliberately imitate the aging dial of the previous generation. The dial is black lacquered with a red cross hair in the middle, and the seconds hand is also eye-catching red. The hands and hour markers are coated with white Super-LumiNova, which shows the time clearly in the dark. A date window at 3 o’clock adds a useful feature to the watch.
The watch is paired with a more formal brown calfskin strap, which complements the overall retro design and adds charm. A grey NATO fabric strap is also available.
Considering the waterproof performance of the watch, the watch is not back-treated, but the embossed sea turtle relief is engraved on the bottom of the watch. This turtle is not only a classic logo of Certina, but also symbolizes this one. Timepieces are indestructible. The watch is equipped with the Powermatic80 movement, which gives up the fast and slow needles. It uses a common cardless hairspring structure for high-end watches with a power reserve of 80 hours, which is in line with the current long-term power trend in watchmaking.
Summary: This replica diving watch is now a popular model of Certina. On the one hand, as far as Certina’s DSPH200M is concerned, the price is not high, both in terms of value and performance.

On the other hand, the first batch of DSPH200M in China is very small, scattered in stores in various cities, so it also leads to a situation that is difficult to find.
