I have read great things about vintage Certinas. Can anyone please help me identify what year/model name this Certina belongs too?

Does this have the famous DS (Double Security)? I believe DS began in 1959.

Thanks!

No, not at all. A crown is a part that wears out and watchmakers just put on a new crowns that they had in stock. As it has the newer Certina logo a crown with that logo is preferable but a period correct crown would do as well. Gold Certina crown are hard to find nowadays so you take what you can get.
