So I started to collect the scattered and scanty information available, and the result is published here since 2008. Since 2016 VintageCERTINAs is the official partner page of Certina when it comes to the subject of history and vintage models.
This site is not intended to be a complete reference for all vintage Certina models. I specifically focus on models from the 1960s and 70s that I think are worth mentioning, with a particular emphasis on mechanical watches. Nevertheless, I will try to update the site with other models and information over time. This list is not intended to be exhaustive, and I cannot guarantee the accuracy of the data. This is a private website.
My thanks for providing me with information and pictures go to: Reto Marxer, Brigitt Illi, Axel66, jeannie, Terri und 660feet from the Watchtime-Forum, Nalu, Snogge und Sulaco from the Watchuseek Dive Watch Forum, MSX from the forum Orologi & Passioni, Roger Ruegger, Roland Ranfft, Gerhard Standop, Martin Lovasz, Urs Bodmer and all the other helpers, too numerous to mention here.
