Certina was founded in 1888, when the brothers Adolf and Alfred Kurth opened their watch production facility in Grenchen, Switzerland. Originally called Grana watches, the name ‘Certina’, based on the Latin word ‘certus’, which means ‘sure’, became their brand name in the 1930s.
The company launched their DS (double security) concept in 1959, offering an extremely shock-resistant automatic timepiece, which was water resistant up to 200m (20 bar). This innovative watch set a new standard for wristwatches.
Since then, Certina watches have been worn and celebrated in extreme conditions; from the Himalayas to the bottom of the ocean. These timepieces are renowned for their precise timekeeping and durability in any sport. We have a large range of ladies’ and gents’ Certina watches in store, all featuring the DS standard.
