Some green Rolex watches to bring on the luck of the Irish
This St. Patrick’s Day, forget the green hats and cheap green beer and celebrate in style instead. May we suggest a green Rolex and a glass of real Irish whiskey or stout? We have the watches covered, so read on to discover some glorious green Rolex watches – our version of a pot of gold.
Don’t get pinched. Be sure to wear green this St. Patrick’s Day.
Rolex Submariner ref. 16610LV
Nicknamed the “Kermit”, the Rolex Submariner ref. 16610 made its debut in 2003 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the iconic dive watch. Although the luxurious model has since been discontinued, the Submariner ref. 16610LV remains a popular Rolex model.
Its stainless steel 40mm Oyster case is home to a green diver’s bezel, while the dial is black and features larger hour makers than other ref. 16610 watches. On the dial, there are the characteristic Mercedes-style center hands, in addition to the larger lume plots for maximum legibility. Beating within the case, water resistant to 1,000 feet, is the Rolex Caliber 3135 that powers both the time and the date functions.
The “Kermit” has a bright green aluminum bezel and a black dial.
Rolex Submariner ref. 116610LV
If you love green Rolex watches with catchy nicknames, then take a look at the Submariner ref. 116610LV “Hulk”. It got its moniker for being bigger, bolder, and more green than its predecessor. Although the Sub ref. 11610LV sports the same 40mm sized Oyster case, it certainly wears bigger and bulkier thanks to its slight redesign.
This particular green Rolex Submariner has the highly coveted ceramic bezel, rather than one made from aluminum like on the previous generation. And that bright green ceramic bezel looks absolutely exceptionally great next to the matching green dial. The stainless steel case and green face of the Rolex Submariner ref. 116610LV is an unbeatable combo and perfect for your Saint Patrick’s Day celebrations.
Can you guess why this Rolex Submariner is called the “Hulk” by collectors?
Rolex Milgauss ref. 116400GV
Moving away from the water and to the laboratory, we now delve into the Rolex Milgauss ref. 116400GV. The Milgauss was produced for the scientific community who found themselves in environments with high magnetic fields. Thus, Rolex presented the Milgauss watch that could withstand 1,000 gauss.
Fast forward to today and the Milgauss ref. 116400GV is a subtle interpretation of green Rolex watches. The green sapphire crystal atop the 40mm stainless steel case emits a slight futuristic glow – a perfect complement to the quirky orange lightning bolt shaped seconds hand.
The antimagnetic Milgauss was produced with scientists in mind.
Rolex Datejust II ref. 116333
In contrast to the sportier models listed above, this particular Datejust II ref. 116333 is more discreet than many of the other green Rolex watches on this list. The green Roman numerals on the dial is a nice touch to the two-tone yellow gold and stainless steel Datejust II. Additionally, the yellow gold fluted bezel elevates the dressiness of this Rolex.
With a case that measures a more robust 41mm compared to the more traditional Datejust models, the Datejust II is a fantastic modern interpretation of the classic Rolex dress watch. Although the Datejust II has been replaced by the new Datejust 41 collection, there are still plenty of models – such as this one – that can be found on the pre-owned market.
The ‘Wimbledon Dial’ in this ref. 116333 Datejust II has green hour markers.
Rolex GMT-Master II ref. 116718LN
For one of the most luxurious choices among green Rolex watches, it doesn’t get better than the GMT-Master II ref. 116718LN. Not only was the GMT-Master II ref. 116718LN with the green dial manufactured to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the legendary GMT-Master pilot’s watch collection, but it was also the first Rolex to sport the Cerachrom ceramic bezel.
Prized for its attractiveness, as well as, its resistance to scratches and fading, Rolex ceramic bezels are the ideal choice for the brand’s modern sports watches. Looking deeper into this GMT-Master II’s details, it is no wonder why this watch is seen on every collector’s wish list. With the GMT-Master II ref. 116718LN’s green dial and full 18k yellow gold construction, who needs a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow anyway?
The Anniversary Rolex GMT-Master II ref. 116718LN has a green dial, making it perfect for St. Patty’s Day.
