CERTINA DS PODIUM CHRONOGRAPH LAP TIMER – HANDS ON REVIEW
It was 2007 and I was window shopping at a watch store that had low to mid range watches. Brands like Festina, Casio, Tissot and Certina were in there, mostly sports models and of course mostly chronographs. Two watches stood out of the crowd for me; the Tissot PRC 200 (which I bought, not there and then but that’s a different story) and the Certina DS Podium. It was a fairly new model line within the Certina family that the brand offered in both quartz and automatic versions. Though at the time the automatic was out of my price range I loved the look of the watch and its sportiness. Exactly 10 years later I finally managed to put one on the wrist. During my review of the Certina DS Podium Chronograph Lap Timer Racing Edition that is. Here’s what I think of it.
