It's easy to see why you like these SO much Mark ! They both have
eye-catching looks. The top one has an amazing case, and the way
the bezel is sloped like that it awesome ! Great dial too !!! That second
Certina is equally as nice, with the black dial helping to show off the
perfectly thought out markers and hands. It seems like Certina really
knows how to make some pretty great watches ! Thanks for those links
too !

Love the DS3-Super.
Really wish I could find one - not that I could afford it.
Opted for neo-vintage Zinex instead.

Certina really needs to dig back into the archives and re-release these babies.
Sadly, they're not making anything like this anymore.
