$28,475

About

Beautiful condition Rolex Submariner Date with Green Anniversary Edition Bezel. 40mm Stainless Steel case. Scratch resistant sapphire crystal. Black dial with Superluminova hands and hour markers. Stainless Steel Oyster Bracelet with Oysterlock clasp. Model M16610LV. Case Serial Number M001916. Caliber 3135. Nicknamed the Rolex “Kermit” 50th Anniversary watch, the green bezel Submariner was designed to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the watch. The timepiece is constructed entirely of 904L stainless steel. Its black dial is adorned with white hour markers that glow in the dark with a blue luminescence. The Oyster bracelet is made up of three-piece flat links and is secured with an Oysterlock clasp. The steel case houses a self-winding 3135 caliber movement, which is one of the oldest production movements and is made in-house by Rolex. It is an extremely reliable caliber and the most popular as it maintains perfect accuracy throughout time. The model 16610V has been discontinued and has become quite collectible due to its unique look and limited anniversary green and black design. The Rolex Kermit features 31 jewels and has 28800 beats per hour, with 50 hours of power reserve. It’s also waterproof down to 1,000ft. Rolex Submariner 16610LV has quick date change capability when set on the second position of the crown. When adjusting time, there is no retraction of the minute hand after it’s set and the winding of the movement is amazingly smooth, giving you the full experience of Rolex. Full service by Rolex Watch USA, Inc. in 2019 and unused since then. Excellent condition.

About the Design

Submariner

Designed by Rolex
A watch that could survive 100 meters underwater? The concept was unthinkable in 1953, when Rolex introduced what would become the benchmark for a diver’s watch, the Submariner, at the international watch and jewelry fair in Basel, Switzerland. By this point, Rolex was well-versed in durable timepieces; it had released the Oyster, the world’s first waterproof watch, in 1926. The Submariner — full name: Oyster Perpetual Submariner — would go on to become not only a technical feat but also a decade-spanning status symbol. Technically, the Submariner watch is defined by its scratch-resistant, ceramic, rotatable bezel, which allows for optimal accuracy even deep underwater and bears a knurled rim for ease of adjustment with diving gloves. Later versions of the timepiece are waterproof to 300 meters — although most fans of the watch, content to sport the timepiece on solid ground, will likely never test that capability. The Submariner’s most famous star turn, perhaps, is its association with one famous fictional spy. In playing the role of James Bond, Sean Connery sported a reference 6538 in several of the series’ films. George Lazenby, Roger Moore and Timothy Dalton would go on to wear subsequent models of the Submariner in their respective portrayals of the secret agent. Connery’s Submariner loyalty in the early Bond films correlated with the watch’s move from diving accoutrement to widely coveted accessory. Other well-known Submariner admirers have included rock legend and watch aficionado Eric Clapton as well as Steve McQueen, Al Pacino and even Che Guevara. In 2016, GQ magazine dubbed the Rolex wristwatch “the male engagement ring” and recognized the Submariner as “the most primally loved” of the brand’s models. Given the numerous versions of Submariner that Rolex has produced since 1953, variations are plentiful. The first Submariners were manufactured in stainless steel. Since then, Rolex has added versions in yellow gold as well as a mix of its “Oystersteel” — a high-quality stainless steel produced in-house at the watchmaker — and yellow gold. Other modifications relate to the dial’s characteristics or the style of the hands: Modern Submariners bear the name “Submariner” on their dials, although not all early models do. (Some attribute this to an unforeseen trademark issue.) Pre-1965 models have dials printed in gold, while those produced since then are white. The hands of later models are shaped in the decorative cathedral style as opposed to the slender pencil-style hands of the early models. Details aside, Submariners of all eras bear an undeniable allure. Who, after all, wouldn’t want to wear the same timepiece as James Bond?
