The next-generation Certina DS-2 Super PH 1000M makes another successful trip underwater, as part of the Tektite II Project
That same year, a Japanese expedition to Mount Everest is equipped with five Certina DS-2 Chronolympic
watches. During the expedition, the Japanese skier Yuichiro Miura completes one of the most daring downhills in the history of skiing, going from 8000 m to 7000 m. Certina's rugged equipment perfectly resists all changes in temperature and records the key moments of the expedition.
Certina co-sponsors the "Canaris Project,” which involves sending an enormous two-by-three-metre polyester egg weighing 350 kg across the Atlantic. The egg is equipped with a camera to film the voyage as well as two Certina DS chronometers to record time. The egg is considered to be the first artistic creation ever to have made the unmanned trip across the Atlantic.
