I can truly use the word “rare” when describing this 41mm. stainless steel 1970 OMEGA SEAMASTER 200 vintage dive watch. We coined the name “Banana” for the yellow dial Seamaster 200 and “poppy” for the gray dial version. I’ve named this rarest version the “rouge noir”. In over 30 years immersed in the vintage watch world, I’ve never owned this black dial version. This example is completely original; dial, hands, lume and perspex bezel all displaying amazing original condition. The caliber 565 automatic winding OMEGA movement was meticulously cleaned and is accurate. The case was restored by one of the best case restorers in Canada-stunning! An OMEGA factory mineral glass crystal plus crown and tube was replaced-exact as per the original version. Look at the mirrored, sharp edges on this case! This original turning bezel is often found cracked and destroyed…not this one. This watch is MUCH more uncommon than a $20,000 Rolex SUBMARINER and offers more “punch”. A true collector’s OMEGA.
