In 1926, rolex has created the first waterproof and dustproof watch in the world and this is the famous rolex oyster watch. What is called oyster, just imitate the strcture of oyster then design the waterproof device, this replica rolex watch has outstanding performance of waterproof and dustproof. In 1931, rolex launched the first “perpetual” watch in the world which depends on the swing of people’s arm then put potential energy change over to kinetic energy, without manual cochain, so this watch named “perpetual” watch. With the birth of “oyster” watch and “perpetual watch”, rolex become the leader in the watch industry.
In these days, I was really tired and have not much time to write something new about replica watches, actually at the beginning of 2017, those factories seem not to release striking new models, I guess they are waiting for genuine new watches that will be published in BaselWorld. However, some factories, such as BP, are still bringing new surprise to us, this time, BP factory released a series of vintage Rolex Submariner replicas, this one Comex 1680 is one of them. Actually I remembered such type of vintage Rolex replicas were manufactured by another unknown factory, a factory that made the famous vintage Paul Newman Daytona replica, this time, not only BP made Paul Newman Daytona, it also produced this Comex Submariner.
Every one who knows BP must remember their Rolex Submariner replicas have a very close quality to Noob Submariner, so now BP brings these vintage Rolex replicas to a new quality level.
The biggest difference between this 1680 and other Submariners is that its dial has a COMEX printing, so it is a Rolex that has a rich story. The only background history about such Rolex Submariner is it has a tight association with Comex company. In order to develop a model that is more suitable for professional divers, Rolex cooperated with Comex, to ask their workers to wear Rolex Submariner watches when working under water, to distinguish this type of Submariners from other common Submariners, Rolex printed “COMEX” word on the dial. The development of Comex Submariner has made a great contribution to the birth of Rolex Sea-Dweller. This is all things I know about Comex Rolex watch.
