This is an uncommon Omega Seamaster 200m dive watch from 1970 we call the “Banana 200.” We coined the name of this watch in 2008 and it seems to have stuck! We have sold more of these than any other dealer in the world. This does not mean they are common, they are in fact quite rare to find. We simply seek them out worldwide. The dials were also originally printed in grey and in black configurations, with all variations being quite uncommon. French military divers were known to wear these watches. The massive case measures 41mm not including the crown, with mineral-glass (original) crystal. This crystal has the tiniest of marks that are barely visible. The vibrant and original rotating bezel clicks one step at a time. There are minor scuffs and one tiny crack at 9:00, which is barely noticeable and is always common to find on these acrylic bezels. This bezel is not available (new) from Omega anymore and has not been for years. We have seen these watches with destroyed acrylic bezels. Finding a decent bezel installed on a Seamaster 200 is difficult. The dial is completely original and not a factory replacement (which is slightly different) and often seen on these watches. The hands are factory original with matching lume. The original screw-down crown is present. The caliber 565 was the only movement used in these Omegas. This one is a very robust automatic, having a swan’s neck regulation, which was just cleaned and is accurate. The original and uncommon bracelet is also present, further adding to the value of this package. We seek these watches throughout the world as they are becoming very hard to find in all-original condition!
