On February 12, the second leg of the 2015 FIA World Rally Championship started in Sweden. At the opening ceremony, the famous Swiss watch brand Certina launched the new championship series and increased the DS Podium Big Size Chronograph WRC Limited Edition. This also marks the third consecutive year that Certina will serve as FIA World Rally Championship partners and official timing.
The new championship series has increased the release of a limited edition world rally chronograph, which further deepens the close relationship between Certina and car rally. The watch is equipped with a Swiss-made ETA PrecidriveTM chronograph movement with an accuracy of 1/100 second. The carbon fiber-refined dial surface, high-tech chronograph dial and sporty design style are all reminiscent of the charm of car rallying.
At the opening event held by Karlstad, Certina President Adrian Bosshard briefly introduced the main features of the new championship series and increased world rally limited chronograph, and presented the first few numbers to the world car rally Tournament promotion managing director Oliver Ciesla, Citroën Total Abu Dhabi World Rally Team main drivers Mads Østberg and Kris Meeke.
This watch has been launched in late February and is sold with a fine watch box (containing an identification certificate). It is limited to 5,000 pieces worldwide, and will surely be favored by watch connoisseurs and car rally enthusiasts.
