In recent times, exhaustion has taken its toll on me, leaving little opportunity to delve into fresh content concerning replica watches. However, I do recall that at the beginning, it appeared that watch factories were hesitant to release groundbreaking new models, perhaps anticipating the unveiling of authentic timepieces at BaselWorld. Nevertheless, certain factories, including BP, continue to astound us with remarkable offerings. BP has recently launched a series of vintage Rolex Submariner replicas, with the Comex 1680 being a notable addition. I have a recollection of a different, unidentified factory that previously manufactured similar vintage Rolex replicas, including the renowned Paul Newman Daytona replica. Remarkably, BP has not only ventured into crafting Paul Newman Daytona replicas but has also entered the realm of Comex Submariner replicas. Those familiar with BP will attest to the striking resemblance in quality between their Rolex Submariner replicas and those produced by the esteemed Noob Submariner. With the introduction of these vintage Rolex replicas, BP has taken their quality standards to new heights.
The most significant distinction between the 1680 and other replica Submariners lies in its dial, adorned with the prominent COMEX printing, infusing this Rolex with a captivating history. The sole background information available regarding this particular Rolex Submariner is its close association with the Comex company. In a bid to develop a timepiece better suited for professional divers, Rolex collaborated with Comex, tasking their workers to wear Rolex Submariner watches during underwater operations. To differentiate these specialized Submariners from the standard models, Rolex incorporated the “COMEX” inscription on the dial. The development of the Comex Submariner played a pivotal role in the eventual creation of the Rolex Sea-Dweller. These are the details I possess concerning Comex Rolex watches.
Now let’s discuss the BP replica Rolex Comex Submariner, featuring a black gilt dial with white printings. The white hour markers do not possess silver edges, and at the 6 o’clock position, you’ll find the “SWISS T<25” inscription on the dial. The “COMEX” text appears in black, set within a white square background. Additionally, the date font is larger in size and has a slightly different style compared to modern Submariners. Personally, I find the crown design appealing, as it lacks large protecting lugs, allowing for easy rotation when adjusting the time and date.
Lastly, the replica vintage Rolex comes equipped with the ETA 2836-2 movement, acknowledged as the most reliable movement utilized in replicas. With the rapid development of the replica watch industry, clone movements have been engineered to closely resemble their genuine counterparts. Nevertheless, I highly recommend opting for the ETA 2836 movement, as it undergoes fewer modifications to its components, resulting in a more stable performance. Furthermore, I am delighted to inform you that the much-requested riveted bracelet is now in stock, catering to the demands of vintage Rolex enthusiasts.
