FS: Certina DS PH200M re-issue
SOLD: Certina DS PH200M re-issue. This watch has a lovely hesalite crystal with NEX Scratchguard scratch resistant coating. I was worried that polishing with Polywatch might ruin the crystal as with the scratch resistant coating on Max Bill watches, but after pressing the folks at Certina/Swatch for a definitive answer via email, they said that polishing would not damage the crystal. So far, it’s been a non-issue and the Scratchguard coating is doing its job. Despite the 52mm L2L, the watch comfortably hugs the wrist, being fairly thin an d lighter than you might imagine.
The watch is still in great condition, except for some minute scratch marks on the back of the lugs due to strap changes. The DS PH200M comes with the full kit including the nato and the tan leather strap, which have gone unused because nothing suits this watch more than mesh or tropic rubber. I’m also including an H-link mesh bracelet, which has a nicer clasp with more micro-adjustments than similar mesh bracelets, as well an “1820” tropic rubber strap, which is thin and soft (not silicone) and with a length of 120 x 75mm, long enough for my 7.75” wrist.
Price is $600 net to me, including shipping in the U.S.
