Here's a vintage 1970s Certina DS-3 with a chocolate dial and orange minute hand -- in mint condition.

So cool.

The massive and towering solid steel case is 40mm wide, excluding the signed, screw-down crown, by 40mm from lug to lug. The bezel clicks with each move.

Under the hood is the classic 919-1 25-jewel automatic movement, keeping excellent time. The quick-set date works well.

Comes on the original Certina-signed steel-link bracelet, which will fit a 7.25 inch wrist.

This is a rare variant of the DS-3, sold mainly in the U.S.
