With St. Patrick’s Day’s day just over the horizon (or is it over the rainbow?) we turn our attention to green Rolex watches. And since green is Rolex’s signature shade, there’s plenty to choose from. Whether you decide to sport head-to-toe emerald gear or keep it minimal with just a touch of color, take a look at these three different green Rolex watches to get you in the festive mood.
Subtle Green: Rolex Datejust II 116333
The Rolex Datejust II at 41mm is a larger and sportier alternative to the classic Datejust 36 watch. Similar to the smaller Datejust collection of timepieces, the bigger Datejust comes in a range of metal choices including steel, gold and Rolesor two-tone, such as this fantastic Rolex Datejust II 116333. The mix of robust stainless steel and precious yellow gold is a classic combination that will always look great.
And while there are countless dial options to choose from, for St. Paddy’s Day we love this slate dial with green-outlined black Roman numerals. A subtle approach to wearing a green Rolex watch.
More Green: Rolex Submariner 16610LV
If you want more green on your Rolex watch, then feast your eyes on the famous Submariner ref. 16610LV, a.k.a. “The Kermit”. As its frog-inspired nickname implies, this Submariner wears its green aluminum bezel proudly on top of its 40mm stainless steel case. This particular model was in fact released to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the most famous luxury diving watch ever made.
Along with the green diver’s bezel, the commemorative Submariner ref. 16610LV bears all the signature hallmarks of Rolex’s popular diving watch. There’s the date window on the black dial at 3 o’clock magnified by the Cyclops lens on the sapphire crystal. There are also the large lume plots encircling the dial, along with the luminescent Mercedes-style center hands. Then there’s the unmistakable sporty steel Oyster bracelet finishing off the iconic look of this green Submariner.
Full-On Green: Rolex GMT-Master II 116718
If it’s a full-on green Rolex watch you want, then look no further than the lush GMT-Master II ref. 116767. Crafted in solid 18k yellow gold and flaunting a vibrant green dial, this GMT-Master II is more attention-grabbing than any St. Patrick’s parade out there.
Also an anniversary model, the GMT-Master II ref. 116718 made its debut on the 50th anniversary of Rolex’s famous pilot’s watch. In addition to marking an important milestone, the ref. 116718 also paved the way for a new generation of Rolex sports watches. Remember, this commemorative GMT-Master II ref. 116718 was the first Rolex watch to feature the now-ubiquitous Cerachrom ceramic bezel and the Parachrom hairspring fitted in the movement.
This March 17, treat yourself to a glorious glass (or two) of fine Irish whiskey and bypass the shamrock and opt instead for a green Rolex watch as your lucky charm.
