This is a very RARE OMEGA SEAMASTER 200 from 1972! This watch is known as the” SEAMASTER POPPY 200. ” This is the name we recently coined for this rare watch. We sell more of these POPPY 200’s than any dealer in the world. We have two of these very rare OMEGAS in our “long hold” collection at WatchesToBuy.com; as we know these are one of the most uncommon OMEGA dive watches in existence. We see fewer of these than the OMEGA PLOPROF dive watch and the SEMASTER 200 BANANA. We have found these watches in the past, “destroyed”, because the diver has forgotten to keep the screw-down crown fastened tightly; further diminishing the supply of these OMEGAS. The sparkling, beautiful and massive stainless steel case, measures 41mm., not including the crown, with mineral glass (original) scratchless crystal, original luminous hands and sweep seconds. The bezel and dial still glow brightly! The vibrant and original rotating bezel clicks one step at a time and is quite uncommon to find without major cracks. The original dark gray “poppy style” dial is what makes these watches very attractive…quite exotic! They also are found in yellow (BANANA) and black (. All versions are quite rare! The caliber 565 (with quickset date) was the only movement used in these OMEGAS; very robust, automatic, having swan’s neck regulation. These were considered “tool” watches and were used by various military divers throughout EUROPE due to their easy visibility and durability. This caliber 565 OMEGA movement was cleaned and is keeping time. If you are seeking an out of the ordinary vintage OMEGA that will surely escalate in price…this is the one!
