The Green bezel Sub is living a moment of incredible demand and popularity.
I mean ,the requests are through the roof for this!!
Reference 16610LV was introduced at the end of 2003 as a commemorative model to the 50th anniversary of the Iconic Submariner.
Green , representing Rolex heritage color , was used as an accent for the bezel setting it apart from it’s classic black counterpart.
What is special about this reference and what all the hype is about is that we have a classic late 80s-90s body Rolex case + bracelet paired with the new look of the maxi marker dial. Old school and new school blended together.
As a matter of fact , 5 digit reference Rolex are on fire right now because Rolex enthusiasts simply love the classic case and satiny bracelets we all come to get used to.
The green Sub came in different versions of minutiae on the dial and bezel.
The first batches Y-F serial have the MK1 dial ( Oval O on ROLEX text and 5 ticks under SWISS MADE) and the super coveted FLAT or FAT 4 bezel. This is the real anniversary model.
In my opinion the engraved Rehaut 16610LV are also very ,very hot given the old world-new world combination of details.
New Old Stock models are in great demand and I am lucky to have two in my collection.
My two cents, invest in 5 digit Rolex Sport models with complete sets and in mint condition, you will be extremely happy!
