DS Dream

Sporty enchantment and elegance

Certina is pleased to introduce the new DS Dream, a timepiece of brilliant elegance and glamour. With its polished case and bracelet, and a delightfully feminine mother-of-pearl dial framed by a bright bezel adorned with ninety Top Wesselton diamonds, it is sure to earn a special place in a woman's favourite accessories.

With the DS Dream, CERTINA designers have created a statement of great feminine harmony and character, in an exclusive product line where every model wears diamonds, on either the dial, the bezel or both. In a watch suited as much to everyday use as to classy evening outings, CERTINA brings together the great elegance of Top Wesselton diamonds and contemporary design elements, inside a fully polished 316L stainless steel case with a matching polished steel bracelet. With a mother-of-pearl central dial area inside a broad white rim that wears special Arabic numerals at 9, 12 and 3 as well as a date window at 6 o'clock, the DS Dream is spirited, and also quite original. Behind its sapphire crystal, the raised numerals are punctuated by eight delicate and nickelled black chatons, each with its own diamond. The hour and minute hands are also nickelled black and treated with Superluminova, for those tender late hours. The DS Dream is equipped with a 'DS'-monogrammed crown to remind wearers of its great reliability, with a guaranteed water resistance up to a pressure of 10 bar (100 m). Its three-row fully polished stainless steel bracelet is beautifully crafted to look like a five-row design, and is fastened by a butterfly clasp with twin push-buttons, to ensure that the DS Dream remains with you at all times.
Other versions of this timepiece are available, including one with an enigmatic fully-black dial inside a bright, fully-polished stainless-steel case, a bicolor (steel/PVD gold) model and a titanium version. Something special for every occasion.
