Rolex Submariner ref. 16610LV
Nicknamed the “Kermit”, the Rolex Submariner ref. 16610 made its debut in 2004 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. 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 is the Rolex Caliber 3135—water resistant to 1,000 feet—that powers both the time and the date functions.

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.
