COMEX 1680


The COMEX 1680 by Guill@ume


1680C


COMEX received its 1680 Submariners in 1978 , eight  years after the production of the  classic 1680 . At this time divers, were equipped with the 5513/14 and had just received the famous Sea Dweller 1665 .

So , what was it to do with a 200 meters no HEV watch ? Some were given to divers for non saturation dive and most of them were given to employees , customer and suppliers .

This one belonged to the COMEX food supplier .It was offered by Mr. Delauze (founder)  for his 30th birthday . He was the only owner .

Most of 1680 COMEX were resold and redialed as normal Rolex watches as many owners didn't really like the advertisement on the dial and the case back. Poor guys , if they knew... COMEX  received approximately 60 examples

The 1680 in pictures :

When this watch was  purchased, it had been 28 years without service , but it still worked perfectly .

Here is the watch before (left) and after service.
