Green Rolex Watches for Saint Patrick’s Day

March 16, 2021

BY Paul Altieri

SHARE

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. Green is Rolex’s signature shade, yet the color is seldom actually featured on the timepieces that the brand produces. With that in mind, there are still some fantastic Rolex models that showcase the brand’s company colors, so here are some of our favorite green Rolex watches to get you in the festive mood – and to help ensure that you don’t get pinched!

Click here for our ultimate buying guide on Rolex watches.

Rolex

Rolex Submariner ref. 116610LV – “Hulk”

Green Rolex Submariner 116610LV Hulk

Submariner 116610LV Key Features:

Case Size: 40mm

Materials: Stainless Steel

Functions: Time w/ Running Seconds, Date Display

Dial: Green w/ Luminous Hour Markers

Bezel: Unidirectional, Green Ceramic Insert w/ 60-Minute Scale

Crystal: Sapphire (Flat w/ Cyclops Lens)

Movement: Rolex Caliber 3135

Strap/Bracelet: Oyster Bracelet

With its green Cerachrom bezel and matching green sunburst dial, the “Hulk” may just be the greenest Rolex watch that the brand has ever produced. Other than its distinctive green color profile, the reference 116610LV is the same as its all-black counterpart and features a durable stainless steel case, chronometer-certified movement, rotating timing bezel, and 300 meters of water resistance.

Rolex Daytona ref. 116508 – Green Dial

Green Rolex Daytona 116508 Yellow Gold

Daytona 116508 Key Features:

Case Size: 40mm

Materials: 18k Yellow Gold

Functions: Time w/ Running Seconds, 12-Hour Chronograph

Dial: Green w/ Luminous Hour Markers

Bezel: Fixed, 18k Yellow Gold w/ Tachymeter Scale

Crystal: Sapphire (Flat)

Movement: Rolex Caliber 4130

Strap/Bracelet: Oyster Bracelet

While most of the attention is fixed upon the stainless steel models from the Rolex Daytona lineup, the green dial version of the solid 18k yellow gold reference 116508 easily ranks among the hottest and most difficult to find Rolex watches in the world. Other than its striking green dial with bright red and white accents, this ultra-desirable watch is the same as a standard ref. 116508, complete with an 18k yellow gold tachymeter bezel and the brand’s in-house Caliber 4130 chronograph movement.

Rolex Oyster Perpetual 41 ref. 124300 – Green Dial

Green Rolex Oyster Perpetual 41 124300

Oyster Perpetual 124300 Key Features:

Case Size: 41mm

Materials: Stainless Steel

Functions: Time w/ Running Seconds

Dial: Green w/ Luminous Hour Markers

Bezel: Fixed, Stainless Steel, Smooth Style

Crystal: Sapphire (Flat)

Movement: Rolex Caliber 3230

Strap/Bracelet: Oyster Bracelet

Easily one of the most discussed new Rolex watches from 2020 was the updated Oyster Perpetual collection with brightly colored dials. Among a range of vibrant tones such as turquoise blue, candy pink, and coral red, you will find one in a distinct tone of green. Powered by the brand’s new-generation Caliber 3230 movement, the 36mm and 41mm versions of the new Rolex Oyster Perpetual series offer quite a lot of watch for the money, and the green dial version is an easy pick for getting in the Saint Patrick’s Day spirit.

Rolex Submariner ref. 16610LV – “Kermit”

Green Rolex Submariner 16610LV Kermit

Submariner 16610LV Key Features:

Case Size: 40mm

Materials: Stainless Steel

Functions: Time w/ Running Seconds, Date Display

Dial: Black w/ Luminous Hour Markers

Bezel: Unidirectional, Green Aluminum Insert w/ 60-Minute Scale

Crystal: Sapphire (Flat w/ Cyclops Lens)

Movement: Rolex Caliber 3135

Strap/Bracelet: Oyster Bracelet

As the very first Rolex Submariner to feature the color green (and the first to include a Maxi dial), the reference 16610LV holds a special place in the brand’s history. First launched in 2003 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Rolex’s legendary dive watch, the “Kermit” includes the same case and Caliber 3135 movement as its all-black counterpart, but it features a black Maxi dial and vibrant green aluminum bezel insert.

Vintage Rolex Day-Date ref. 1803 – Stella Dial

Vintage Rolex Day-Date 1803 Green Stella Dial

Day-Date President 1803 Key Features:

Case Size: 36mm

Materials: 18k Gold (Yellow or White)

Functions: Time w/ Running Seconds, Date Display, Day Display

Dial: Green w/ Applied Hour Markers

Bezel: Fixed, 18k Gold, Fluted Style

Crystal: Acrylic (Flat w/ Cyclops Lens)

Movement: Rolex Caliber 1556

Strap/Bracelet: President Bracelet

Rolex has been featuring the color green on an increasing number of its watches, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t also some fantastic vintage Rolex watches that include the brand’s signature hue. Possibly the most noteworthy example among these are the vintage Day-Date President watches with striking green Stella dials. Offered in either solid 18k white or yellow gold, these green lacquer Stella dial watches are the inspiration behind the green dials that can now be found inside the brand’s Oyster Perpetual collection.

Rolex Milgauss ref. 116400GV – Green Crystal

Green Rolex Milgauss 116400GV

Milgauss 116400GV Key Features:

Case Size: 40mm

Materials: Stainless Steel

Functions: Time w/ Running Seconds, Antimagnetic

Dial: Black w/ Luminous Hour Markers

Bezel: Fixed, Stainless Steel, Smooth Style

Crystal: Green Sapphire (Flat)

Movement: Rolex Caliber 3131

Strap/Bracelet: Oyster Bracelet

For a slightly more subtle pop of green on Saint Patrick’s Day, consider the reference 116400GV Milgauss. Unlike the rest of Rolex’s various green watches, the green on this iteration of the brand’s antimagnetic watch does not come from its dial or bezel, but rather from the sapphire crystal. Available with either a black or Z-blue dial, the Milgauss ref. 116400GV features a unique green-tinted sapphire crystal above its dial and hands, and it holds the distinction of being the only watch ever produced by Rolex to include a colored sapphire crystal.

Rolex GMT-Master II Ref. 116718LN – Green Dial

Green Rolex GMT-Master II 116718LN

GMT-Master II 116718LN Key Features:

Case Size: 40mm

Materials: 18k Yellow Gold

Functions: Time w/ Running Seconds, Date Display, GMT Functionality

Dial: Green w/ Luminous Hour Markers

Bezel: Bidirectional, Black Ceramic Insert w/ 24-Hour Scale

Crystal: Sapphire (Flat w/ Cyclops Lens)

Movement: Rolex Caliber 3186

Strap/Bracelet: Oyster Bracelet

The Rolex GMT-Master II series received a major update in 2005 when the brand’s original pilot’s watch celebrated its 50th anniversary. First appearing in solid gold and then making its way to the two-tone and stainless steel models, the new generation of GMT-Master II watches marked the introduction of the “Super Case” and Cerachrom ceramic bezel inserts. The full 18k yellow gold reference 116710LN was available with a standard black dial and bezel; however, Rolex also produced a version with a bright green dial as a means to commemorate the anniversary.

Rolex Submariner ref. 126610LV – Green Bezel

Green Rolex Submariner 126610LV

Submariner 126610LV Key Features:

Case Size: 41mm

Materials: Stainless Steel

Functions: Time w/ Running Seconds, Date Display

Dial: Black w/ Luminous Hour Markers

Bezel: Unidirectional, Green Ceramic Insert w/ 60-Minute Scale

Crystal: Sapphire (Flat w/ Cyclops Lens)

Movement: Rolex Caliber 3235

Strap/Bracelet: Oyster Bracelet

For those that want the latest edition of the green Rolex Submariner, the reference 126610LV is the version that was just released in 2020 and features the new-generation Caliber 3235 movement. Like the original “Kermit” Submariner, the new ref. 126610LV features a black dial with a green bezel, but now the insert is crafted from green Cerachrom (just like the “Hulk”) rather than anodized aluminum. With its new 41mm case, this is also the largest green Submariner available and its Cal. 3235 movement includes all of the brand’s latest and greatest technologies such as the Chronergy escapement and Paraflex shock absorbers.
