    Powermatic, is this the movement Tissot used in their watches?

    Yes. It's laser regulated or something so can't be easily serviced by an independent, although I have only read this on a forum so no direct experience.

    I love the look of it but the size means I'll give it a miss anyway, lasers or no lasers.

    Looks great! A hell of a package for the price. Can't wait for mine to arrive on Tuesday!

    These are growing on me more and more, just in time for Christmas- only thing putting me off is the size would prefer they were around the 40mm mark.

    Great pictures as always!

    Certina's photos : https://www.certina.com/watch/ds-ph200m/C0364071605000

    Jocke's photos : http://www.watchwallpapers.com/cdsn.htm

    Whoever is in charge of Certina's marketing should be sent for retraining.

    If this watch is a success, which I hope it will be, it will in due in part to Jocke's great work.

    Which photos are more accurate though? Jocke certainly posts fantastic photos, but they tend to have one hell of a lot of editing in photos hop or such.

    That aside, I like the look of the watch, but alas it is too big and I'm not a fan of divers without bracekets, let alone ones shipped on leather.

    Regardless of post-production, with Jocke's photos you can see all sides of the watch, including the case back, and the movement, presentation box and spare strap.

    Certina gives just one photo and doesn't bother to fill in all the info in the 'Specifications' box. Beyond poor and hopefully not reflective of the care put into manufacture.

    Personal opinion, nice watch too big.

    Just ordered mine, looking forward to seeing it next week. If it’s too big it’ll be heading back, but I do like the larger proportion watch.

    I have a Hamilton Khaki Navy Scuba, and can confirm that the power reserve is a full 80hrs. I have no complaints about it's timekeeping either.

    This seems to be the case with most companies though, even the mighty Rolex.

    Loved the look of these since I first saw them, even more so now after looking at Jocke's stunning photos.

    Agreed…. Would love an original PH, but, prices have gone bonkers

    Super looking watch but a bit too large for my taste, unlike the original
    (not that you can tell from these pictures!)

    If I didn’t have an original I’d definitely buy one of these.

    Great pics from Jocke as usual.

    No. Was tempted by one of the solar tunas though. Very nice piece.

    If I hadn't bought my 7th exit watch last week since having bought my super absolutely the last watch I ever buy grail exit watch last year then I might have caved in. But I didn't. Because I'm strong like that. Or something.
    Good luck everybody. Have a good one.

    I really like this a lot but I reckon the lug to lug length will be too much for my 6.5" wrist
