Rolex Submariner 50th Anniversary Kermit 16610LV
Released to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of one of Rolex's most iconic models, the Submariner. Affectionately known as the 'Kermit' due to its stand out green bezel, this watch comes complete with full links, box, warranty card and all original inserts. Also remaining unpolished, this presents itself as a fine opportunity for the watch collector.
The 50th anniversary Rolex Submariner, or 'Kermit' as it's affectionately known, was first released in 2003 and was in production for a period of just 7 years until 2010. A forerunner to current Submariner Hulk, the Kermit was the first Submariner to feature an all green bezel, but unlike the Hulk, this was combined with a black Submariner dial. Featured as a special anniversary limited edition piece, the ‘Kermit’ Submariner ran alongside the standard submariner until both were discontinued in 2010 to make way for a new range of Submariners with ceramic bezels including the Rolex Submariner Hulk.
This fabulous piece features a resilient 40mm stainless steel case, while Rolex’s trademark Cyclops date magnifier and luminous markers increase visibility. The 16610 features a stainless steel Oysterlink bracelet, while a sleek black dial adds a touch of further class.
One of Rolex’s most famous models, the Submariner was launched in 1953 as a professional divers’ watch. In the intervening years, however, the model has expanded its remit to become one of the world’s most popular prestige watches, with a stunning design making it popular way beyond diving circles.
