AAA quality fake Rolex marked the 50th anniversary of the first Submariner by introducing the 16610LV in 2003 and then kept the celebration going until 2010. The LV in the reference number stands for lunette verte, or “green bezel” in English, and that green is the defining characteristic of this watch as well as the origin of the “Kermit” nickname. Green is best quality replica Rolex‘s color, after all. It is used for its boxes, green seal, and banners at sponsored events. Since 2003, it has been used on a variety of the brand’s anniversary watches.
The bright aluminum bezel is a very different shade than the ceramic version that would follow sometime later. It is a touch darker and offers a perfect contrast to the black dial. The cheap super clone Rolex 16610LV comes with a so-called “maxi dial,” where the hands and markers are a little larger than previous models or even other non-LV 16610 Submariners. Back in 2003, Swiss movement replica Rolex waitlists were not very common; even the Daytona was not especially hard to buy. The Kermit, though, was one of high quality fake Rolex’s high-demand, lower-production models. At the time, it was not uncommon to wait a year or so for one of your own, and the collector’s enthusiasm for these green Subs has never really died down.
This creates the opportunity for many people to take a 16610 and swap the dial, hands, and bezel in order to sell it as a top quality fake Rolex Submariner 16610LV at a premium. Make sure when you search for one that it has the original paperwork to match the watch, which confirms not only the model (16610LV) but also the serial number of the watch in question. This wholesale copy Rolex comes with the original papers and a green bezel that is as deep green as the day it left the lilypad –err– factory.
