Very nice black dialed all steel automatic with the famous 25-651 26 jewel movement. This dial is especially attractive with white internal “bezel”, giving the watch a “racing” image. It has the appearance of a NOS watch. All luminescence material is intact on both dial and hands, and the red seconds hand is a super detail together with the white hands and hour markers. The Certina logo and the quarterly hour markers are applied metal (white gold?) together with the frame on the date window.
We have equipped this watch with a new racing strap. It has not been polished and has the marvelous turtle plus waves on the caseback (the manual DS-2s have a slimmer case, showing only the turtle medallion by itself). These cases have a prominent form, and measures 37,5mm across, 40mm if you measure diagonally from ten past to ten past the half hour.The serial number 6989833 dates this watch to ca 1967, thereby making it an early DS-2.
