Catalogue Note

Starting from late 1960s, Rolex had supplied different Submariner models with or without the patented gas escape valve to COMEX (Compagnie Maritime d'Expertise) in France, a professional diving operation for the oil industry. The present watch is from the reference 16800 series, in short production from 1982 until 1986, with the COMEX designation on the outside of the screw-down case back and on the dial.
