Created by master craftsman Jacques Bianchi the JB200 is a spectacular French navy issued 1980’s diving watch. Reimagined, by Fabrice Pougez and Simo Tber the Red Dial JB200 is superbly crafted in the port city of Marseille.
Exclusive in its very limited numbers, this rare beauty is instantly recognizable thanks to the painted silhouette of a frogman on its red dial. Remaining faithful to the historical spirit of the original JB200 the waterproof to 200 meters- 42mm steel case evokes all the splendour and design characteristics of the adventurous skin divers off the 70’s. Measuring 13.3mm thick with a 20mm width between the lugs, the notably solid, smoothly polished case is superbly finished, and houses a stringently tested at the industry’s highest-level movement.
Confidently fit for army divers, and the national French navy, it comes fitted on a carefully designed, tropic rubber strap that offers comfort, durability and that high quality free -spirted adventurous feel. Totally oriented towards the improved legibility- in all light conditions, immense research went into perfecting the perfect shade of ivory of the luminescent indexes, striking arrow hands, and highly functional, glove-grippable 60 click, unidirectional bezel with ivory coloured Super-Luminova sapphire crystal. Sporting a screwed Destro crown, off set at 9 o’clock, plus unique square lollipop seconds hand, plus the iconic silhouette of a great diver, with his eye firmly focused on his watch ensures the historical DNA shines through.
Note how the excellence of the reimagined model accelerates; with its proven precision Seiko NH35 mechanical movement with automatic winding. Chosen by master craftsmen, possessing decades of watchmaking expertise, this robust and ultra-reliable movement is a true horological dream that does some serious talking with its impressive credentials.
