Modern and classic coexist, tasting Certina Diyue series watches

Certina recently launched a series of brand-new DS Powermatic 80 watches. These new works are called the Diyue series in China. Design elements are borrowed from historical watches, so they can learn from this basic three-hand calendar design. , I can see some retro styles. Of course, Certina gives them a modern and modern charm. The series includes a stainless steel case or a gold PVD coated case, as well as a total of six styles including five different color dials. , Watch House photographed these new products in the first time, so today I will introduce them in detail with a real shot picture of a white plate and green belt style.

The design inspiration of this series of watches is actually derived from the UFO replica chronograph that I have introduced to you before, especially on this white plate style. A little comparison shows that many designs are in the same line.

The watch is made of 316L stainless steel. The diameter of the watch is 41 mm and the thickness is 10.90 mm. The size is the gold size of a modern men’s watch, rather than the smaller classic size. The thickness of the shell is also properly controlled. From this perspective It can be seen that the lugs are slightly bent in order to fit the wrist more comfortably.

The top of the crown on the other side of the watch is engraved with the brand logo, and there is a non-slip pit pattern on the whole body. The watch is also equipped with Certina’s DS dual insurance technology, which uses O-ring gaskets on the mirror, stem and crown, as well as special gaskets on the back cover to protect the mechanism from various external aggressions. , Which makes the watch more reliable, and the water resistance of the whole watch reaches 100 meters.

The case is modified by a wire drawing process, and the bezel is polished. The curved sapphire mirror and the arched white disc also make the watch sleek and streamlined. The arrow-shaped time scale and the 12 and 6 o’clock digital time scales of the watch are all derived from the UFO chronograph, but because it does not have a timing counter, a digital time scale is also added at 9 o’clock.

There is a brand double-C logo at 12 o’clock. At 6 o’clock, the word “Powermatic 80” is used. The upper part is modern font, and the lower part is retro-effect. They are presented separately on a plate. There is also a date display window at 3 o’clock, and the bright spot of the entire white plate is the blue steel second hand. The hour and minute hands and round hour markers are coated with Super-LumiNova fluorescent material.

The watch uses a back-through design. Under the transparent caseback is a Powermatic 80 movement. There is nothing to say about the decoration of this movement, but its performance has been relatively good at the same price. The movement is equipped with Nivachron antimagnetic hairspring. The titanium base is not only antimagnetic, but also has excellent seismic performance. The movement can provide 80 hours of power reserve, reaching the level of a weekend watch.

The watch comes with a green NATO strap. The choice of this green braid can also be said to be the finishing touch to the watch, giving the watch a taste of a military watch. The new products are also designed with a quick release system to facilitate the replacement of the strap to meet different wearing needs.

Summary: This disc Yue series white disc green belt style is priced at 6,500 yuan. We have also read it overall. No matter the design or performance, it is very cost-effective at the same level, and although it is a formal model, But take this white plate for example, because the retro style is matched with the green NATO strap, it also has the charm of an old adventure watch or an old army watch, plus the existence of the strap quick change system, it can also be used to change the belt to control the formal wear. Usually the braided belt can be casual and versatile. Looking at it comprehensively, it is indeed a good choice for commuting watches. If you like this watch, you may wish to pay more attention to it. There are also many styles of the same series to choose from.
