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.

    The ref. 16800 was the first Submariner fitted with a sapphire crystal. This increased the watch's depth rating from 200 to 300 meters. The earliest versions of this transitional model (like the current lot) were fitted with matte dials and luminous markers directly applied to the dial.

    This is a rare opportunity to own an uncommon version of the COMEX Submariners. It is the ultimate tool watch, used for what it was intended.
