Rolex Submariner ‘Kermit’ MK2
The Rolex Submariner reference 16610LV, also known as the “Kermit” was produced in limited quantities from 2003 to 2010, this Submariner was manufactured by Rolex to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Submariner. This watch is highly sought after by collectors due to its rarity and unique design features, such as the (back then) unique ‘Maxi’ dial, inspired by vintage Submariners, and the Kermit green bezel insert of course.
So, as menitoned this watch stands out from other Submariners from that same production era, due to is its black “Maxi” dial and green “Slim 4” bezel insert. The dial features larger hour markers which are filled with green luminescent material for improved legibility in low-light conditions. The green bezel insert adds a pop of color to the entire watch and is instantly recognizable to the Rolex collector or aficionado’s eye. The watch we are offering here is a so-called MK2 model, an early production-run 16610LV with a D08xxxx case number which puts production of this particular ‘Kermit’ right behind the MK1 Flat 4 models. Our ‘Kermit’ is still in new old stock condition, which means that it has been worn a couple of times (10 times at best) and remains in absolute pristine conditions. It is accompanied by the original boxes, original warranty (both the correct and then updated 2005 versions) the Submariner and ‘your Rolex’ booklets, and to top it all off, this Submariner still remains in the original factory stickers – This makes this Kermit Submariner a highly collectible item for Rolex enthusiasts.
Overall, this Rolex Submariner reference 16610LV is truly a special edition watch that is highly prized by collectors. Its unique design features, limited production run, and ‘unworn’ condition make it a rare and valuable addition to any watch collection! Plus, how awesome would it be that after 18 years you get to peel off all the stickers and wear the sh*t out of this watch!
The movement was fully checked by our professional and certified watchmakers, and after 18 years she still performs according the COSC specifications! This Rolex Submariner ‘Kermit’ MK2 will of course be sold with our extensive 24 month warranty.
