Klarna and PayPal are not available on this item

Rolex Submariner date, reference 16610LV. It is commonly known as the green sub due to its green bezel. Also sometimes referred to as the Kermit. The 16610LV is the pre ceramic model and one would argue the original. It is a complete full set from 2010. The full set includes the original hang tags, all links, and the original purchase receipt, warranty card, box set and all booklets. The Green Sub has a maxi dial where the indexes and hands are larger than the regular Submariner, so easier to read. The Green Sub was made for 7 years only and during its years of production was difficult to acquire due it being supplied in limited numbers. Therefore there were never that many in the market. Since it has been discontinued, the values are increasing due to its rarity and it is a guaranteed future classic because of its rarity. It was made as the 50th year anniversary model to celebrate 50 years of the Rolex Submariner.

Additional Product Details

Rolex SA was founded in 1905 by the German Hans Wilsdorf and his brother-in-law, Alfred Davis. Contrary to popular belief, Hans Wilsdorf was neither Swiss, nor a watchmaker. Wilsdorf & Davis was the original name of what later became the Rolex Watch Company. They originally imported Hermann Aegler's Swiss movements to England and placed them in quality cases made by Dennison and others. These early wristwatches were then sold to jewellers, who then put their own names on the dial. The earliest watches from the firm of Wilsdorf and Davis are usually marked "W&D" – inside the caseback only. Hans Wilsdorf registered the trademark name "Rolex" in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland during 1908. The word was made up, but its origin is obscure. One story, which was never confirmed by Wilsdorf, is that the word "Rolex" came from the French phrase horlogerie exquise, meaning exquisite watch industry. The Wilsdorf & Davis company moved out of Great Britain in 1912. Wilsdorf wanted his watches to be affordable, but taxes and export duties on the case metals (silver and gold) were driving costs up. From that time to the present, Rolex has been headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, though the company owns facilities in other cities (Bienne, etc) and continents (North America, Asia, Australia, etc). The company name Rolex was officially registered on 15 November 1915. It is thought this change was part of a drive to popularize wristwatches, which at the time were still considered a novelty largely for women (pocket watches were more common). Wilsdorf was said to desire his watch brand's name to be easily pronounceable in any language. The company name was officially changed to the Rolex Watch Company during 1919. It was later changed to Montres Rolex, SA and finally Rolex, SA. Rolex SA is a foundation initiated and originally funded by Hans Wilsdorf and the Aegler family. According to foundation documentation, the Rolex SA company can never be sold, nor traded on any stock market.
