Certina has quite a following on watch forums, but they were previously only available from European sellers. One of their nicest watches is the thermocompensated high accuracy quartz watches, but this automatic is also quite nice, especially the price! Personally, I consider Certina to be a step above Hamilton.

A newbie question: why do you think Certina is a step above Hamilton? I see the Hamilton watches are more expensive than Certina's Stick Out Tongue

I really like this watch and finally a watch posted that's the perfect size for my wrists.

Price seems real good. I'm not familiar with the brand but can't really go wrong with 2824-2 movement.

Hope this deal disappears before I end up ordering one. laugh out loud

Certina is a great (underestimated) brand. Not my style watch though

That's why I prefaced it with "personally." They are actually at the same branding level and they are made by the same company (Swatch group). However, they were hard to get in the US until recently and importing from Europe was kind of expensive. So, it mostly comes to scarcity. Now that they are available here, I may feel differently in six months.

Good price for a highly rated watch...but I already have a Hammy that fills the same spot in the winder so I haven't a need for this one. I like the Jazzmaster's styling a little better anyway (this one looks like a Khaki case with a Jazzmaster dial). While I'm not a big fan of bracelets on a dress watch, it's hard to argue against one for this kind of money (plus you can always sell it for much more than the cost of all but the most costly straps).

Meh, certina looks like a confused Tissot watch. Oddly enough some of these remind me of Tag Heuer. The styles that this brand makes is in all directions. Not my taste.

Can you clarify about why it fits your wrist? long bracelet?

It's 39mm so would look right on smaller wrists, that's probably what he meant. However, 48mm lug to lug makes it a little too long IMO. I have 42mm watches same or shorter than that (Armida A1 being a good example).
