In 1888, brothers Adolf and Alfred Kurth set up their own watch workshop in the Swiss city of Grenchen. In this idyllic place at the foot of the Jura mountains (between Solothurn and Biel), the two brothers and three employees began working in an annex of their own home. In a short period of time, the business blooms, and in the years to come, various extensions are opened and new people are engaged.
The Certina DS concept, launched in 1958, was revolutionary and superior to all the watches of that time. DS (Double Security) was unique because the clock mechanism was locked in a solid, very stable and dense stainless steel casing.
Another vital milestone in Certina's life was the collaboration with the international world of performance sports, based on concepts such as accuracy, pioneering spirit, reliability and, of course, dynamics. It all started in the middle of the last century when the company was linked to the names of sports legends such as Muhammad Ali, Mike Doohan, Alex Crivillé, Petter Solberg, Sete Gibernau, Timo Glock, Thomas Lüthi, Robert Kubica and many others who were or were to become champions in practiced sports.
