Lovely Certina DS-1 (DS1) chrono. 43mm case, sapphire crystal, 100m WR, exhibition caseback, all solid steel bracelet with double locking clasp and 4 x 2.5mm micro adjustments. Full set with original box and books. The fit & finish is superb (as is the bracelet) and it has a nice mix of brushed and polished surfaces, including bevelled lugs. It has great wrist presence and oozes Swiss quality.

Original papers are dated Feb 2013. I bought it from the original owner in June 2014, but didn't wear it much - and then only on leather - before I went on a spree and bought other pieces. I've been meaning to sell it for about 4 years so it has been stored away for that long. I doubt is has clocked up more than a year of running time in it's whole life.

Runs perfectly of course. First impressions are that it presents like new. Under magnification you can see the usual marks of use. The bracelet and clasp is crisp and secure. The bracelet did pick up some extra scuffs while it was off the watch, most of these have buffed out just fine but there are still a couple of scratches around the clasp. I'm pretty sure it still has all its links - it is currently a bit loose on my 7.75" wrist on the smallest clasp adjustment, so I reckon it could probably go out to about 8.5" with the links it has. Realistically you'll need to remove at least one link if your wrist is smaller than 8".

Box and books
