The COMEX 1680 by Guill@ume
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

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