Hereís another look at Certinaís retro diver, the DS PH200M, a sort of modern re-edition of one of the brandís historical diverís from the 60s and 70s.



The DS PH200M actually got two releases. It initially came out in the spring of 2018 with two straps; one in leather and one striped NATO.



It was then re-released early this year on a Milanese mesh bracelet Ė the setup that many thought it should have been released with to start with.



Alongside the new Stainless steel shark mesh was a second NATO version. Today, we get to see all four variants together Ė Ďní see which one we like best!



Basic spec. includes a 42.8mm Stainless steel case with: a black diverís bezel and a historic black dial dived into four quadrants by a red cross plus matching red seconds hand.



The PH200M remains faithful to its granddad (if you will) with a rounded Hesalite box glass with AR-coating on one side and a scratch-resistant NEX Scratch-guard coating on the other.



The glass has a separate mounting ring thus ensuring double security and a water-resistance up to 200 meters.



The PH200Mís case-back proudly sports the Certina brandís cute little turtle symbol. No pics of that Iím afraid.



Power comes from a Certina Powermatic 80 movement, the same movement found in all the DS Divers (it is not COSC-certified, though). It has a power-reserve of 80-hours.



As mentioned the PH200Mís now comes with 4 different strap setups: 1x leather, 2x NATO and 1 Stainless steel mesh. Swiss MSRP is 695CHF (strap) or 745CHF (steel).
