The Certina DS-8 makes a point of playing with colour – with black, turquoise-green and dark blue dials embellished with silver or rose gold-colored accents. Generous use of Super-LumiNova coating on the hands, numerals and hour markers ensures optimal legibility, in the dark as well. A date window positioned between 4 and 5 o'clock complements the central display of hours, minutes and seconds.
