$19,995

Pre-Owned 40mm stainless steel Rolex “Kermit” Submariner green bezel and dial with date on stainless steel bracelet, Ref. 16610

Introduced in 1953, the Rolex Submariner is the world’s most famous dive watch. For the first five decades of the watch’s history, all stainless steel versions came exclusively with a black bezel.  To mark the 50th anniversary of the Submariner in 2003, Rolex offered for the first time a stainless steel Submariner with a green aluminum bezel, which became known as the Kermit.  in 2010, the Kermit was replaced by the Hulk, which had both a green bezel and a green dial.  Lastly, in 2020, Rolex released a ceramic bezel made in green with a black dial, which marked the return of the Kermit. This watch from ca. 2005 is the original Kermit with aluminum bezel and a full set of box and papers.  This 16610 includes the 904L stainless steel and caliber 3135, which is so robust that it has been used for over thirty years. Many fans consider the 16610 Submariner among the best.  With the green aluminum bezel, it is hard to top.

Description

Rolex is recognized throughout the world not only as a brand associated with luxury, but as a watch that is both luxurious and precise.  For Rolex, this hard-won and well-deserved recognition was never in doubt.  The founder, Hans Wilsdorf named the company Rolex so as to be pronounceable in any language as he anticipated the acclaim his company would receive due to relentless pursuit of precision and accuracy in a wristwatch.  Soon after its founding, Rolex produced the first wristwatch to receive the Swiss Certificate of Chronometric Precision, which was followed rapidly by receipt of a certificate of precision from the Kew Observatory in Great Britain.  From those roots Rolex built a legacy of innovation.  The “Oyster” watch was the first waterproof and dustproof wristwatch in 1926, followed by the first self-winding “Perpetual” rotor.  Building once again on innovation, the “Datejust” became the first self-winding wrist chronometer to include a date in a window on the dial.  Adventurous women and men who strive to achieve what was never before been achieved have chosen Rolex for their expedition, which both perpetuates the brand’s claim to precision and dependability as well as attests to its veracity.  Hans Wilsdorf may have anticipated the acclaim Rolex would someday achieve, but even he might have been impressed by its success.
