The symbol color of ROLEX: The most popular Green Submariner
When it comes to the color of ROLEX, it must be green. Except for the women's models and the high-end models, there is the basic green on the box of ROLEX to unify its design. However, in fact, there was no wristwatch designed with the basic green until now.
Why don't they produce it? It could not be verified. Although as for sport model GMT Master, black model was always more popular than the Pepsi, so it may simply be because colorful models were not popular compare to single color models.
In 2003 - in memory of the 50th anniversary of Submariner, ROLEX released this Green Submariner, which is also commonly known as 'Green Sub'. They changed the bezel of a popular model 'Ref.16610 Submariner Date' to the symbol color green. The model number（Ref.）includes 'LV', which stands for 'Lunette Verte'. It attracted high attention since it was first released, and the market price of 16610LV Green Sub was higher than the original model Ref.16610 Submariner in the used market.
A new model Ref.116610LV Green Sub debuted in 2010. The bezel was changed into ceramic and the dial was changed into green also. After 10 years, in 2020, another new model Ref.126610LV Green Sub came out. The bezel did not change but the dial has changed back to black, which reminds us the original Green Sub.
If you compare the first Green Sub and the new Green Sub, as the bezel has changed to ceramic you can see the difference of the green tone. You can also see the apparent change of impact after the change between the 5-digit and 6-digit models.Although the color is the same, the appearance has changed hugely.
Also, Power Reserve widely upgraded from 40 hours to 70 hours. If you wind the watch fully once it moves for 3 days, which simply covers the disadvantage of a mehcanical watch . It is especially good news to those who uses more than one mechanical watch.
