This is a nice new piece from Certina – the DS Multi-8.
Shame I can’t say the same about the press release that went with this – which was the biggest load of overblown nonsense, even by the standards of most other overblown watch press releases.
And so, on that note, I’m going to skip the press release and just offer up some facts.
How’s that sound?
