Certina DS Podium Chronograph 1/10 sec Wilvo Yamaha Limited Edition (Pictures, Specifications and Price)
Certina's new limited-edition featuring the Wilvo Yamaha Official MXGP Team colours doesn't shy away from either high speed or a great leap forward. On the contrary: with its state-of-the-art Precidrive quartz movement with 1/10 second display and the proven DS Concept for maximum resistance, the new special delivers authentic high performance – just like the motocross team it's named after.
The Certina DS Podium Chronograph 1/10 Sec. Wilvo Yamaha Limited Edition turns measuring time into a breath-taking spectacle. When the push-button is pressed the counter at 2 o'clock displays tenths of a second clearly, with real-time 1/10-of-a-second tracking lasting one minute. The chronograph continues to measure the time when the minute is up, precise to 1/10th of a second, thanks to the reliable Precidrive quartz movement driving the watch. The Limited Edition appears in the colours of "its" motocross team: within the 41 mm stainless steel case, luminous red chronograph hands appear in stark contrast to the blue dial. Super-LumiNova luminous coating on the hands and indexes ensures optimal legibility in the dark as well. A blue leather strap and the official Wilvo Yamaha MXGP logo on the case back complement the sporty exterior.
The new, numbered chronograph is limited to 450 pieces in all. A few of the numbered watches have already been awarded – for good reason: Wilvo riders Jeremy Seewer, Shaun Simpson and Arnaud Tonus each wear a chronograph whose number matches that on their back: Jeremy the number 91, Shaun the 24 and Arnaud the 4. Since the beginning of this year Certina is a partner of the Wilvo Yamaha Official MXGP Team, and Switzerland's MX2 vice World Champion Jeremy Seewer has been riding with Certina since the start of 2017 – and now they're heading to the starting line together, equipped with a special, personal lucky charm.
