I have yet to own a Certina, but I doesn't mean I don't like them (I tend to buy Tissot, which is of a similar price point and quality). I like the styling on their divers particularly. The one you picked up is really unique, and really sharp as well.
You'll have fun with that Powermatic 80, too. Does exactly what they claim it does, and well; it's a pretty good achievement there - a Swiss movement that outruns more expensive ones at about half the cost. I mean, fun, man.
And you're right about Certina distribution. Heck, even in vast NYC, I know of only one retail store that carries them (Hour Passion, and that's because it's run by the Swatch group).
WatchGeeks will go down in watch forum history as the worst watch related site that existed. Trolls, threats, bannings, and owners and sponsors talking out of their collective asses to fleece people out of hard earned money. - Koimaster
