rolex comex 16800

"rolex submariner 16800 comex

In 1984, a number of Comex divers celebrating 10 years of service were presented with a Rolex Submariner 16800 with a comex logo dial and specially engraved cases bearing their name and issue number and date.
It is interesting to note that these watches all had a special dial that excluded the words scoc with only the comex logo, the submariner and the depth rating (sometimes inverted) written below the hands.

The example we have for sale here is one of the 5. It includes the diver's name on the caseback and the issue number and date of presentation and is sold with the original papers and box set.

Excellent condition-Full Lugs
Serial number:
8, xxx, xxx
Good condition-Lightly marked

Perfect condition - matching the dial

"In 1963 :

A close collaboration was established between Rolex and the Compagnie Maritime d'Expertises (comex), whose divers wore Rolex Sea-Dweller watches while working at great depths. The company, led by Henri Germain Delauze, is one of the pioneers of deep-sea diving and still enjoys a worldwide reputation as a specialist company for hyperbaric technology and underwater work.

The relationship between Rolex and comex is as close today as ever, as evidenced by the overpressure tank developed by the Marseille-based company specifically for testing Rolex Deepsea models."

"comex is a French diving company founded in 1961 to explore the depths of the oceans. The nasa of the deep sea.

From 1970 to 1997 comex worked closely with Rolex and many of their deep sea divers were given Rolex sd as tools for their work. Rolex used this to test some of their new watches and solve some problems with comex, such as decompression divers and their watches not being able to withstand depths. The Helium Escape Valve (hev) was developed on 5513 and tested 5514 (reference for comex only) for comex before it became commercially available in the original SeaDweller in 1967.

comex watches have also been associated with records and experiments such as the maximum depth of 701 meters or the Hydra experiments and it is common to see these watches engraved with details of the experiments.

What makes them so collectible is that they were never sold by stores (authorized dealers) and only issued to divers or officials, and even after all these years with comex, they were made in extremely small quantities. They also have special features and unique comex serial numbers and engravings in the case leaves that make them very interesting to collectors.

They played an important role in the development of the watches we wear today.
