Back in 1960 Certina showed off the durability of the original DS-1 by taking one on a trip to the top of Mount Dhaulagiri in the Himalayas.
The adventure was designed to highlight the shock-resistant assembly, reinforced case and sapphire crystal and the hermetic seals on the stem, crown and case.
Fast forward to 2011 and the latest DS-1 shares the same features in its 39mm stainless steel case.
It also has an AR-coated sapphire crystal, a display back, and is water resistant to 100 meters.
Movement is the Swiss automatic ETA caliber 2824-2 with 25 jewels, 28,800 vph and a power reserve of 40 hours.
No word on which mountain this one might be heading to the top of!
