Any Love For Certina?

Recommended Posts

Don't know much about Certina, but I got this on ebay because I loved its minimalist 60s vibe. Don't know if it is 60s, maybe early 70s? I haven't seen many Certinas in the vintage forum. This runs like a charm and keeps great time. Thinking of putting it on a no stitch black crocograin strap, what do you think? Cheers for looking.

I can't see the pictures as Photobucket is an awful photo hosting site (Flickr is my choice - easier, quicker and actually allows you to share the photo)

But vintage Certina are good buys, certainly in the UK where they are under appreciated.   They are far more expensive in Europe.  They often have nice in house movements, well finished.

Thanks, Scottswatches! Sorry about the pics...yes, photobucket has become just awful/unbearable, slow add polluted and unresponsive; time for a move I think.

I dreaded the move, thinking it would be terrible.  But it was quick and easy, and flickr has never in my experience been down.

Right, many thanks for the advice; created a flickr account, just seeing if I can post a pic, so sorry if this pic is not vintage...
