This Seamaster 200, which is also introduced as Pre-Bond on the official page of Omega.

This model was released in 1988 and was produced until 1995.

After the end of production, in 1995, James Bond attached the Seamaster 300 in the movie "007 GoldenEye" and became famous as "Bond Watch".

Because it is the model before the bond watch, it is named Pre-Bond.

During the production period of about 7 years, the design of the needle has changed and the specifications of the back cover and breath are also different, so some people are starting to collect it, and it is gradually becoming popular.

The design is different from the Seamaster 300, and it is an integrated dedicated breath, so it gives an overall impression.

There were two sizes, but this is a full size model.

The bezel diameter is 38 mm, the case size including the crown guard is 40 mm, and the size including the crown is 42 mm.

Although it is very detailed, this is the earliest model called 1st Gen, and it is a watch with very rare specifications only about one year after its release.

The features are that the hour hand is a Benz hand, the crown has 6 protrusions, and there is no sea hose on the back cover, only letters.

Another feature of the movement is that it is equipped with Cal.1441.

The charm of the pre-bond is that it is a diver's watch with an integrated bracelet and it is relatively new in age, so it can be used easily, but it is also possible to have it as a collection piece with this 1st Gen watch.

The dial has some changes over time, but it is not noticeable.

I think the condition of the index, hands, case and bracelet is good.

A tag at the time of sale and 3 extra frames are included.

Currently, it is possible to handle up to about 18 cm around the arm, but since there are extra frames, even thick arms can be used with confidence.

Battery replacement, back cover packing and crown packing have been replaced.

6 months warranty.

About Service
Service(Overhaul) is the process of disassembling a mechanical product down to its component parts, cleaning, and reassembling it to bring it back to the state of performance when it was new.

The overhaul procedure is roughly explained as follows
Separate the case and movement.
Disassemble the movement
Inspect each part for wear and tear and perform a preliminary cleaning.
Cleaning by a special machine
Lubrication and assembly
6. Water-resistance inspection (water-resistance function guaranteed)
7. Adjustment and running test
This is the process of the watchmaking process.

Some movements consist of several hundred parts, which are disassembled piece by piece, inspected, cleaned, and reassembled in an extremely precise process.

Without overhaul, just like a car, the oil deteriorates and the risk of wear and tear on the parts increases, causing a loss of precision or, in serious cases, the inability to run.

We recommend an overhaul every two to three years to ensure economical and long-lasting use of your watch.


About new finishing (polishing)

Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has become rounded at the corners, or has many small scratches on the surface that should be beautiful with a mirror finish.

At Albitro, we believe that our watches should be purchased in beautiful condition and used for a long time, so we sell them with a new finish.

Especially for dress watches with gold cases, we finish them to bring out the best of the precious metal case.

The watches sold at Albitro that have been newly finished are photographed in very high resolution, so you can see the edges are sharp and the mirror finish reflects the light.

Some cases and bracelets have a mixture of mirror and hairline finishes, but not many craftsmen are able to distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.

The "thinning of the case" is another area that is highly dependent on the skill of the craftsman. A watch with skinny lugs is far from its original design, and its appearance is unbalanced.

It is a very meticulous process to reduce the thinness of the case as much as possible while eliminating scratches and dents to bring the watch closer to its original finish.

Of course, in some cases, it is better to leave the watch in its original condition as it is, as it is the history of the watch and the original condition is important.

We look at each watch individually and decide whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
