Chronology of cameras Certex 

Certex manufactured the Werlisa Club Color from 1976 to the end of the 80s through four successive generations, having the same main technical characteristics and being differentiated mainly by aesthetic retouching.

The first generation, to which the copy presented here belongs, has the main body in black color, the sole and the bonnet in metallic. The front face of the hood has an extra thickness including the viewfinder window, the useless central window and the marking giving the name of the model. This one is in black and red. On the first copies, it is partially engraved. Subsequently, it will simply be screen printed on an insert. These early copies have a trigger button resembling Agfa's Sensor. It will quickly be replaced by a metallic button avoiding confusion. The lens is a Certar 7.5 / 38mm. The shutter has three speeds, represented by pictograms. There is no ring to hang a strap. Around the front lens, there is the name of the lens, its focal length and its maximum aperture.

The front of the top cover of the second generation, 1979, is different. The model name is no longer inside the allowance. The trigger button is green. A strap ring appears. The inscriptions around the lens remain. There are copies of this generation with the hood and sole in black color.

The third generation, from 1981, can be recognized by the change in registration around the lens. The maximum aperture number disappears. Often black with a green shutter button, this model is often confused with the black models of the second generation. You have to pay attention to the lens markings to distinguish them.
The devices of this generation were sold as a kit, accompanied by a flash.

The fourth generation (1985) is easily recognized by the bright colors of the front part of the body.
