Rolex Submariner Date "Kermit"

The Rolex Submariner "Kermit" features a black maxi dial and green bezel. Very early versions like the "Flat 4" are particularly sought-after collector's items with good investment potential.

By Chrono24

Bein' Green

In 2003, Rolex celebrated the Submariner's 50th anniversary by releasing a special edition of the famous diving watch: the Submariner Date ref. 16610LV. This model has two defining features, the most obvious being the green aluminum bezel insert. Rolex also outfitted this timepiece with a black "maxi dial", which is characterized by larger indices. The eye-catching green was the source of inspiration for this watch's nickname: Kermit.

From a technical standpoint, the Kermit, which was discontinued in 2010, is identical to the standard Submariner Date ref. 16610. Ten years later, in 2020, the Geneva-based manufacturer once again launched a Sub Date with a green bezel and black dial. However, the bezel on this new model, the ref. 126610LV, is made of green ceramic. Rolex fans cleverly refer to it as "Cermit," but you'll also hear it referred to as the "Starbucks" (due again to the bezel color).

Both watches are highly sought-after. Prices for various models skyrocketed accordingly between 2020 and early 2022. Since then, however, we've seen a downward trend that has now more or less stabilized. Which means that, as of Spring 2023, it may well be worth investing in a Submariner Kermit again.

Reasons to Buy a Submariner Kermit

  • Special color design with a green bezel and black dial
  • Coveted collector's item
  • In-house caliber 3135 or 3235
  • Ref. 126610LV with a green ceramic bezel
  • Good investment potential, depending on when you buy

How much does a Submariner Kermit cost?

Submariner Kermit ref. Price (approx.) Features
16610LV "Flat 4" 35,000 USD "Flat 4" bezel, 40 mm, caliber 3135
16610LV 23,500 USD 40 mm, caliber 3135
126610LV "Cermit" or "Starbucks" 18,000 USD Ceramic bezel, 41 mm, caliber 3235

Rolex Submariner Kermit Prices

The most affordable Submariner Date with a green bezel and black dial is the current ref. 126610LV. While Rolex lists this model for 10,600 USD, you won't have an easy time trying to buy this Kermit from an authorized dealer, due to the high demand. If you want to bypass the endless wait lists, you should look for one on the secondary market, but expect to pay a significant premium. In May 2023, for example, listings for this model on Chrono24 were around 18,400 USD.

A first-generation Kermit will set you back around 25,000 USD. These are mostly watches from the later production phase. Earlier Flat 4 models are much rarer and significantly more expensive, changing hands on Chrono24 for roughly 35,000 USD as of early 2023. However, the same model demanded an investment of over 40,000 USD just one year before.


About the Kermit Ref. 16610LV

Rolex produced the Submariner Date ref. 16610LV Kermit from 2003 to 2010. This timepiece has the same stainless steel case as the standard version of the ref. 16610, which you can recognize by its narrow lugs and relatively small crown guard. These models are also powered by the same caliber, namely the 3135. This movement features a blue anti-magnetic Parachrom hairspring, offers a power reserve of 48 hours, and, in true Rolex fashion, is chronometer-certified.

The Kermit ref. 16610LV is the first Submariner to have a maxi dial. As opposed to the dials that had been customary up to that point, the applied indices are significantly larger, which makes them easier to read.

The real showstopper, however, is the bezel with the green aluminum insert. Rolex produced nine different versions of this bezel during the seven years that the "Kermit" was in production. However, you need a sharp eye to tell the difference between them. For example, the shade varies between a light olive green – also called "Bertolli," after the Italian olive oil brand – to the much darker "Racing Green." Other differences can be seen in the thickness of the minute markers, as well as the shape of the numerals. The most popular variant is the "Flat 4." If you take a closer look at the 4 in the number 40 on a Flat 4 bezel, you'll see that it's flat at the top. Rolex only used this font for very early Kermit editions, which is why this watch is such a rare find.


About the New Editions With Ceramic Bezels

Rolex released a new Kermit variant in 2020. Like previous models, the ref. 126610LV is made of stainless steel and features a maxi dial. However, this watch is 41 mm in diameter and its bezel inlay is crafted from Rolex's high-tech ceramic, Cerachrom.

Changes also took place inside the case itself, with the state-of-the-art caliber 3235 now powering the latest Kermit edition. This movement features Rolex's proprietary Parachrom hairspring and Chronergy escapement. This escapement is made of a nickel-phosphorous alloy that is less sensitive to magnetic fields and is especially efficient. Thanks to the new escapement and an enlarged barrel, the caliber has a power reserve of 70 hours.

The ref. 126610LV has three nicknames: Kermit 2.0, Cermit, and Starbucks. It will be interesting to see which one goes the distance.
