Selita also apparently sells 'renewed' 200 and 200-1's or 200's modified into 200-1's.* They are identified by a two digit code likely engraved under the balance wheel near the caliber number and other CS codes. The renewal codes indicate the year the movement was refurbished,* 20 for 2020, 21 for 2021 and sew fourth. The other CS codes you may encounter are DM, which indicates Selita manufactured the movement, or XYZ, for which Selita has not yet provided a meaning. If you have watches with Selita movements, check for these codes. (Source: Caliber Corner)
*CC is working to confirm that "renewal" equates to refurbished - IDK what the hell else it could mean - and what calibers in addition to the SW200 / 201 may be sold refurbished. - CC will publish pics and documentation of the codes and caliber numbers as soon as available. Check with the Caliber Corner website at the SW201 page from time to time if you are interested. https://calibercorner.com/sellita-caliber-sw200-1/
If these are indeed defective movements that have been returned to Selita and refurbished, it should be disclosed to the consumer by the brand sourcing the movements for their watches, even if the warranties are equivalent. I don't recall ever seeing such a disclosure.
If you own a watch with the SW200, SW201, or any other Selita caliber, and find any of the above codes engraved on your movement, post up a pic in this thread - would be interesting to see what's what.
