I'm glad I have made someone aware of this watch. Rolex is most widely known for the association with COMEX, however, "Since 1968, Omega was working with COMEX to create the ultimate saturation diving watch, the so-called PloProf (Plongeur Professionnel = professional diver). Omega knew of the problems with exploding watches as their Seamaster 300 had gone through the same issues. Unlike Rolex, Omega engineered the PloProf from scratch to make it impossible for helium to even enter the case. "

For Hydra 1, Omega provided COMEX with five special PloProf prototype watches. PloProf was short for Plongeur Professionnel = professional diver.
