Better known as ‘The Kermit’. Initially, there was some resistance among aficionados but it gained popularity quickly. It attracted a certain audience and, especially, when the model got discontinued in 2010 making it one of the most desired modern Submariners. Besides the obvious change of the bezel colour, the 16610LV was also the first Submariner with the new maxi dial. In 2010, the Kermit was replaced by the reference 116610LV also known as ‘The Hulk’. As is typical for Rolex, the brand has made many small adjustments to the 116610 LV during these 7 production years. The most well-known being the flat four bezel, which indicates that the number ‘4’ on the bezel has a flat top. Only the Y- and F-serials (2003, 2004 respectively) have this feature.
