"A little TGV speed train on your wrist"
In 1982 Roger Tallon designed two series of square shaped quartz watches with metal bracelets for Certina: The DS New Line. The Certina DS Line was first released in 1958. The DS New Line was launched at the Basle Fair of 1983. All these new models have four small screws in the corners. Later on, a variety without the four screws in the corner was produced. They are all based on the one design by Roger Tallon and differ only slightly.
In its 130th year of existence, the sports watch brand has built up a solid international reputation for the highest Swiss quality work. Resistance and reliability are crucial for Certina. The brand already chose the turtle as its personal symbol in the 60s. Even today, its characteristic silhouette can be found on almost every Certina timepiece and in the brand logo. It recalls the extreme resistance that characterizes all Certina watches. 1936 Certina was the first company to produce a digital watch. It was driven by a spring movement. Rotating disks bearing inscribed numbers were used to display the time, instead of hands.
