Certina DS-4 Small Seconds Automatic

I am selling my Certina DS-4 Small Seconds which is in excellent condition. It comes as a full set (box, hang tag, booklet, box sleeves, etc), on the extremely comfortably factory bracelet with butterfly clasp. I am also including a 3rd party black leather strap with a matching chrome deployant clasps that extends this watch from sporty to dressy.


This really is a fantastic watch from a respected Swiss brand with an ETA movement. The case finishing is superb (mid-tier quality), and the bracelet is excellent. The stand-out feature of this watch is the dial. I've tried to capture it in the photos below (hence I've attached so many), but the silver dial wave pattern has a 3D textured relief, which really plays with the light.

The watch was seldom worn, and when it was it was under a dress cuff. The bracelet was only used once or twice before I switched it to the black leather strap, so it is in excellent condition. There is possibly very minor hairline swirls on the case and bracelet, but honestly it's in very clean shape. I've taken lots of close up photos, and there's only one minor scuff I can spot (check the last photo) - it's not really visible to the eye, but I'd rather point it out. I never really bonded with the watch, and hence why it's still in such clean condition, because I found it difficult to wind the crown. After I did some reading, I found several other owners who also didn't like the grip of the crown. It's not the watch/movement per se, just knurling on the crown makes it harder to twist than other watches. Again YMMV, but I want to be as open as possible.

I'm selling this for only SOLD $260 USD
plus $15 shipping via USPS Priority Mail to CONUS only (sorry, no PO Boxes, APO, or FPO addresses)

I'm not a flipper, but my collection is just too large. This is me just starting to sell some watches for the first time, so I don't have a long list of references, but I have a history here and the MOT forum.
No lowballs, I'm not in a great rush to sell it, and I'll be posting it across multiple sites.

If you have any questions or would like to purchase, please PM me. Thanks for looking.
