Full Set 2008 Rolex Green Submariner (Ref. 16610LV) "Kermit" 50th Anniversary
The Rolex Submariner Ref. 16610LV was first introduced in 2003 by Rolex at Baselworld to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Rolex Submariner. The 16610LV is also sometimes referred to as the "Kermit" which differentiates itself from the more modern Rolex Ref. 116610LV also known as the "Hulk" via the Black "MAXI" dial as opposed to the green dial of the "Hulk) and non-ceramic green bezel insert.
The main differences when comparing the Rolex (Ref.16610LV) to the standard Rolex Submariner Date (Ref.16610) is the obvious green bezel insert and the oversized Super LumiNova filled indexes, this dial configuration is comely referred to as the "MAXI" dial. Both the Rolex (Ref. 16610LV) and Rolex (Ref. 16610) have a water resistance rating of 300M/1000ft and are made from 904L stainless steel. Both references come equipped with the modern Trip-Lock crown and Rolex 93250 oyster flip lock bracelets with solid 801 end links. Even though the Rolex Ref. 16610LV is just a few years old it has been discovered that there are 8 dial variants and 2 green bezel variants that are found in the LV references.
The 50th Anniversary 16610LV Submariner has recently become a "modern" favorite to many collectors due to the many dial variations, striking appearance, and ultimately lower production numbers compared to the standard 16610 Submariner. A standout piece on the wrist and in the collection, suited for any occasion from the beach to the boardroom.
