The Rolex Submariner can confidently be counted among the icons in the watch world. Hardly anyone does not know this model from Rolex. James Bond wore it in various films and in real life it can be found almost everywhere on the wrists. In 2003 Rolex celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Submariner and brought out a special model, the reference 16610 lv.
The special feature of this special model was the green bezel, which can also be read from the reference suffix lv for "Lunette Verde".
In 2003, watch lovers were still used to a Rolex brand that was characterized by very gradual evolution of its models. A green bezel on a Submariner was a revolution.
For the presentation of the jubilee Submariner there was also a nice catalogue, which might already belong to the collector's items today.
It is not unusual for a Rolex model to be distinguished by different versions over the years. Usually, these versions can be distinguished by changes in the printing on the dials and different bezel inscriptions. This area is certainly more for true Rolex enthusiasts, as hardly any layman will notice these tiny differences! And yet, the price of such a collector's item can depend considerably on the variant, as can be seen wonderfully with the Red Sub's of the reference 1680 or with the Double Red Sea Dwellers. But also for the interested layman the knowledge of the different variants is useful. There is a surprising amount of tinkering in the watch market. And so the value of a Rolex collectible may well depend on the matching of dial version and bezel version. See also the other articles about the variants of different Rolex models in my blog.
This article is dedicated to the different versions of the Rolex Submariner Ref. 16610 lv. Significant differences can be found in the font of the bezel, the print on the dial as well as the position of the "swiss made" at 6 o'clock.
So the story of the Sumbariner lv began in 2003, exactly 50 years after the release of the first Rolex Submariner.
The first Mark i started with a y serial number. Later in 2003, an "f" followed as the first letter of the serial number. On the bezel of the lv's is especially the number "4" of the 40 interesting. By its design, you can recognize the different versions. On the Mark i, the 4 is flat. The Mark i, the real jubilee Submariner, which were released in autumn 2003, have this "flat 4". "Flat 4" means, that the 4 is flattened on top. On later bezel versions, the 4 is pointed on top. An exception seems to be the Mark iii (see below).
The "swiss made" at 6 o'clock extends over five minute indices that have been printed somewhat shorter. Another feature of the Mark i is the position of the "r" of "oyster", which is exactly centered under the "r" of the "rolex" lettering above it. The "o" of "rolex" is rather oval. In later versions it is round. The Mark i was built until autumn (October) 2004. They carried a y or an f serial number.
