In 1977, COMEX received an order from Rolex for the Submarine 1680. The 1680 submarine has no helium exhaust valve and is only 200 meters water resistant. Although customized for COMEX, this 1680 submariner does not use the COMEX dial like other watches. In fact, the early 1680 used COMEX dials (the number did not exceed 60), but later many customers reported that they did not like this style, and Rolex decided to become the ‘normal’ Rolex dial.
