Today's offering showcases this prime example of a classic steel and 18K gold pre-Bond Seamaster 200m dive watch. These Seamasters were the pre-cursors to what are recognized as the James Bond watches. It has a unidirectional diver's bezel and quartz movement with quick-setting hour for easy switching of times zones.
Unlike most two-tone steel and gold 200's which most often have the all-steel bracelet option, this 200 is the highest version of the two-tone watches, fitted with its original gold and steel bracelet.
They are cool watches with a great look. And this uncommon example presents gorgeously.
It is fully Omega and has just finished a true expertly done sympathetic restoration. On the wrist it presents as nearly like new.
The case presents as just short of perfect mint. Usually the bezel insert shows the most wear on these watches - it is nearly perfect. The dial has been meticulously sympathetically restored - the gilt printing could pass as Omega factory done to the naked eye.
A Master Watchmaker has performed any needed servicing and installed a new battery making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. international warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
