Quite simply a stunning vintage divers watch. The watch looks perfect. Originally sold by Australian Vintage Watch Co all parts are 100% manufactured by the Omega factory and were assembled by Watch Co. The firm no longer offers these watches so on their own are a rare breed.

The 45mm cased watch is classed as a "Jumbo" in the vintage watch industry. Therefore those who like the idea of a owning vintage watch but have concerns with the size perhaps this is for you.

The Seamaster 200 range consisted of the 166.068 in “Banana” and “Poppy” colorways and the 166.091 “pilot line”. As the story goes, the Service Hydrographique et Océanographique de la Marine or SHOM, did not like the available options and commissioned Omega to build a 4th watch, the 166.177. The SHOM was a French government agency that produced maps and charts for divers. These cartographers got an interesting angular case with the black plongeur sword hands and dial from the pilot line 200m

I have seen many of these SHOM’s come up for sale in standard and left hand crown configurations. Nearly all of these were made by Watchco, an Australian Omega parts and service center. While they are not true vintage Omegas, in the sense that they were not around in the 1970’s, these Watchco specials have the similar value in the marketplace and are fine to trade if you disclose the parentage.

The NOS case looks stunning with its laser sharp lines and perfect brushing. You’re buying the watch to wear and not collect and you like the NOS look. If that’s you, go for this Watchco version. The bracelet is on its own is worth around at least £1500 / €1750 / $2000 on its own.

The seconds hand sweeps around nicely. It's Automatic and will have very good reserve power and fully serviced - no battery needed. Next service due in approx 5-10 years so nothing to do apart from enjoy !

The watch would look equally stunning in a vintage tan brown / dark brown or say a black rubber strap to keep in tune with the divers theme.
