Why are so many people fascinated by the Rolex Submariner Kermit?

As usual, we’re zooming in to take a closer look at one specific watch model. This time, we’re giving our undivided attention to the Rolex Submariner ref. 16610LV, a.k.a. the “Kermit.” This special-edition Submariner boasts a black dial and green bezel and debuted on the iconic diving watch’s 50th birthday. It’s easy to confuse the “Kermit” with the Submariner “Hulk,” ref. 116610LV, which has both a green dial and bezel. The “Kermit,” released in 2003, predates the “Hulk” and was the first Submariner to feature the color green. This is a real novelty because colorful accents have always been rare on steel Rolex sports models, bar a few GMT-Masters. The “Kermit” has enjoyed serious popularity and impressive price developments in the years since its release – we take a look at all that and more in this video.

Learn more about the Rolex Submariner 16610LV in our latest Chrono24 Zoom video! Do you think the “Kermit” should be worth more than a normal Submariner? Let us know in the comments below the video.
