Footnotes

  • The collaboration between the world famous French diving company Comex (Compagnie Maritime d'Expertise) and Rolex started in early 1971. As the diving development continued, Rolex continued to collaborate and test their watches with the use of professional divers as well as using Submariners. Each watch issued to their specialist divers was marked Comex on the dial and numbered on the back.
